HELLO FORKERS!

I imagine you are Verdun 

Mine's 9.5" from soil level to top, nice and sturdy with lots of side shoots, but no flower buds yet.  It's cooler here than in Cornwall.  She's had to contend with a few bits being chomped out of her by one of those slugs that we don't have in this garden , so to keep her safe from them she now sits in pride of place in the centre of the table on the terrace 

HELLO FORKERS!

Dusty white deposit on penstemon flowers

It looks almost like the farina you get on some auriculas - but I've never heard of penstemons with farina.

However, if you click on this link http://flowerona.com/page/189/   and scroll down quite a long way, you'll find a photo of a dark penstemon (not clear if it's a Raven) with the same white markings.

Perhaps it's time to make enquiries of the RHS?

Morning KEF   and everyone else 

Last night we had the first courgettes, some Red Japanese Mustard and Pak Choi (what the slugs had left) all from the garden - and some more raspberries. 

We've got some very noisy magpies outside!

finding it hard to level out soil for grass seed.

Practice is a noun - like in a GP Practice

Practise is a verb - as in "I must practise what I preach"
