You're right, not a Cuckoo Pint (I'm on my laptop now rather than my phone). 


I'd go with eryngium

Cheers Archie!   A very long  G&T happening here  as Daniel didn't bring any lemonade or ginger ale for the Pimms

24.6C in the shade here in Norfolk - a little while earlier it was 27.6C 


OH is just sorting BBQ out - I've been squidging vine weevil grubs among the roots of some donated pots of Primula grandiflora   Hosta, have you mislaid some vine weevil grubs?

It's a plant I'm very fond of, in the right setting - but you paid money for it???  I'm sure there are plenty of people on here who would have given you some by the bucket-load ...

It's OK Fairy - Daniel's just popped to the supermarket to fetch me the makings of some Pimms, then he's going to scrape pigeon poo - apparently it's preferable to dealing with us lot 

Any rock experts here?

Advertise them on your local Streetlife page https://www.streetlife.com/  


I'm sure you'll find a local gardener willing to take them off your hands - you're not anywhere near Norfolk are you (says I hopefully) 

Confession to make!

Although the weather is gorgeous, and actually hasn't been too bad all spring, the groundwork and re-organisation we had planned is way behind schedule due to 'family circumstances' ........... we'll just have to 'go with the flow'.  

What is this plant?

Nodlisab - google Bilbergia nutans Queen's Tears  - I used to have one a very long time ago

OH cut front and back this morning   and got the parasol out for the terrace and the sunlounger for the shade under the big tree - he and niece biked up to the fish van for prawns for a salad lunch and they're getting the BBQ out for later.  I've jointed and marinated a chicken and made a potato salad - everyone welcome


I've also pricked out the free tomato seed plants from T&M - the second lot germinated beautifully - and am just about to direct sow some sunflowers.
