What is this plant?

Posted: 06/03/2017 at 12:23

It's called Honesty - Lunaria annua - a hardy biennial with either lilac or white flowers.  Very easy to grow and self seeds around without becoming a nuisance. 


A really pretty thing. 

Does this look good or what.

It's a very straightforward recipe and a great favourite here at this time of year

I find it takes a bit longer to cook than the recipe suggests.

LilyP - when my cough was bad I lived on Covonia and Jakemans menthol & eucalyptus sweets.

Pdoc - glad you enjoyed your treat - Hockney fans here - hoping to get to the show at some time but life's a bit busy at the moment.  Glad you enjoyed Pollen St Social too - a bit pricey for us tho'.  I keep spending my money on plants and paint


BL, the shorter my hair is cut the more often it needs cutting, and it was mid January that it was cut very short so it's lasted quite well really

Good morning all 


Hope the wakeful got some rest eventually. My cough still reappears occasionally, even now 


This morning we are conducting a radical reorganisation of the pantry and kitchen cupboards - it should result in less strain on my dodgy shoulder. Then I'll head into the city for a hair cut. 

Guess the name of this

I'll pass lots on my way into the city tomorrow - I'll look for signs of life Bob
