As children we used to pick the ripening seed heads for the family budgie - he loved it 

Plant or Weed?

Or dig them up before the frosts come, pot them up and keep them indoors on a windowsill or in a frost free greenhouse through the winter and plant them put again when the risk of frost has passed.

33.4C in the shade here this afternoon and still 22C here now  I've had the leaky hose on the Shady Bank and the Wilderness for an hour this evening and the sprinkler on the veg patch and the sunny bed. 


We ate supper on the terrace and then stayed out there and played chess. 


Its been a lovely day

Hello, I'm back - hair cut done and don't need new glasses and no signs of glaucoma or mac. deg or any of that stuff I have to keep an eye open for 


I managed to buy myself a new outfit too - didn't intend to, was only looking - must have had a sticky label 


Sorry to hear Pdoc's still poorly - positive vibes and lots of ((hugs)) to him and Mrs Pdoc. 


Sorry too to hear David K has gone - the photo thing is frustrating - having bought a good camera, it's annoying that I can only post from my phone at the moment, but I know they're doing their best to sort it out.  As I think has been mentioned before, Daniel is only a Demi-God - there are bigger and more important Gods up there on the Olympus that is Immediate Media Mountain who make big decisions and hold the purse strings - he and Nora do their best for us - as gardeners we should understand the importance of being patient.

Now I have a bus to catch ........ SYL folks

Good morning all   G'day Pat  


It's a beautiful morning here in Norfolk ... 20C in the shade and there's a song thrush singing out there - a bit earlier on I heard a mistle thrush.  The goldfinches and greenfinches are busy emptying the feeders - think it's been a good breeding season for them, lots of juveniles around - we're filling the feeders every day.


The garden is looking gorgeous (sunshine always helps doesn't it) and we now have firm plans, rather than hazy ideas for our sunny corner ...... we're not used to gardening in sunshine, having had shady gardens for the last 20 years, but the recent holiday in Cornwall has given us ideas 


I do hope Pdoc and Mrs P are ok and able to enjoy their lovely garden in the sunshine ... thinking about them a lot ((hugs))


Clari, take care of that cold
