We're back 

Are they here yet Flumps?  

Got seabass from Lidl for supper - ready to cook - just bung it in - with new potatoes and spinach it'll only take OH moments to cook it if Andy's still spinning it out ..................... 

What about that Log Cabin party we had at Pdoc's ... we could have another one and keep the NDN up all night ............. if we don't all fall asleep on the sofa first

Translucent leaves on perennial wallflowers

Posted: 10/07/2016 at 10:02

It looks like damage by one of the many types of leaf-miners.  I'd pick off the affected leaves and destroy.  The plants should recover, maybe they're just having a rest - they don't flower all year round.

 However perennial wallflowers aren't a long-lived plant - maybe it's time to replace them? 

Gardener's Garters

Does anyone have some offshoots of Gardeners Garters they'd be willing to pack up and post to me please?

I'm happy to cover packaging and postage and/or make a charity donation.

And yes, I do know that it spreads, but it's just what I need for around a tree stump in a wild (ish) patch.

What is this weed?

Posted: 10/07/2016 at 09:23

Looking at the blotches on the leaves, it may be a Persicaria, possibly P. maculosa - the UK native annual type which is a common 'weed' of agricultural land - more ways of identifying it here 

but there are several types grown as garden plants.  I really like them.

No 4 is definitely ( in my humble opinion ) a rose, not Cistus. Just look at the leaves. 

1. Lychnis

2. Star of Bethlehem (as Ma called it)

the white daisy could well be Ox eye but without seeing the leaves we can't be sure and the same goes for the yellow one - we need to see the whole plant.

Good morning all   

Wonky feeds him lots of Toad in the Hole - obviously good growing food!

Today's activities will be a trip to the tip, then Lidls, then back to garden and weigh sofa down.

Hello again  We've called in at Wonky's and she and OH have popped down the road to get Chish & Fipps for them and us and step grandson who has grown to 6'6" since we saw him last  

Wonkys garden is a real riot of colour - it reminds me of a painting I've seen but I can't remember which one - I'll have to put my thinking cap on ...
