Hello all :-)

Topbird the birdsong started very early this morning ... Think today may be a muggy one ... Tennis may be a tad sticky

The only times I've seen anything like that it's been due to weed killer damage. Is it possible that a contaminated watering can or sprayer has been used on your roses?

Hydrangea Help

Posted: 24/05/2017 at 07:29

It's early for hydrangeas to be in flower so I expect it has been 'forced' by being grown in sheltered conditions and planting it out has, as you say, been a shock 

As long as you look after it there's no reason why it won't survive and bloom for you next year. Don't cut the fading flower heads off until next spring - they often change to lovely faded colours through the summer and autumn and protect the next years buds through the winter. 

Is my bay tree dead? Please help!

It's worth doing as Jess suggests. Good luck and let us know how you get on.

Good morning all  G'day Pat  And many Happy Returns of the Day Pdoc 

Tinygardengirl  - we have extended family members and friends who are Muslim and we know that the people who commit these terrible acts are not representitive of all Muslims. Sadly throughout the ages there have been people of many faiths who have mis-used their religion  to do wicked acts for political purposes. 

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us ((hugs)). The future of the world must be about the things we share rather than the things that divide us.

It must've been a grim birthday for you Clari , what with the atrocity and your OH being away. Many much happier returns to you ((hugs)). 

Now it's time for bed   Sleep peacefully everyone ...

Awwww I grew up on a pig farm.  It's lovely snuggling down under a heat lamp with a litter of piglets when you're eight years old. 

Hi any ideas of what this plant is please?

Elder stems aren't ridged like the ones in the pic. Young elder stems are smooth and covered with a thin silvery grey bark. 

What a lovely day!
