Crush a stem - does it smell a bit celery-like ... if so it could be lovage (a useful culinary herb - grows into quite a bit plant, a bit like angelica). 


If not lovage, it's something in that family, which does include parsnips

In addition to Muddyfork's question above ... 


How often and how much were they watered prior to two weeks ago?


What sort of compost are they in and how long since they were re-potted?

Topbird, by the time friend appeared in the garden I'd given up the struggle and was laid back, laughing hysterically .....


Time for refreshments folks ... help yourselves


Wasps

Is Jerome a professional 'wasp exterminator' I wonder - he seems to be kept very busy with wasps' nests ...... or maybe he just has a large acreage ....... 


I was at a very rural café the other day and saw that they had a Waspinator hanging by the kitchen door - apparently it works really well and they get very few wasps in that area of the garden or in the cafe and kitchen.  Keeping wasps at bay without harming them - sounds perfect.

Good morning all   


Another beautiful start to the day here in Norfolk - bright blue sky and sunshine, but with a good breeze (that'll  get yesterday's tablecloth, napkins etc nice and dry - is anyone getting the i**n out later - I can chuck my little pile over )


We had a really lovely day with our visitors yesterday - 31C inn the shade - we started off sitting by the pond with Campari & sodas while the frogs croaked at us, then lunch on the terrace (Fennel Gazpacho, Chicken Basque, Pavlova with a gooseberry and elderflower cream filling, and of course lots of cheese and wine/beer (and Crabbies etc for the driver) ....... OH did all the washing up and clearing away - now I've only got to sort the best cutlery from the everyday and put it away, and normality will be restored 


The only hiccup was when they arrived ... I was out in the garden on the lounger - I heard their car pull up and sat up, only to find the 'hinge' of the lounger had grabbed the edge of my kaftan and I was fully secured!  I couldn't get out of my chair!!!  Neither could I lean back again to open up the hinge as I couldn't move my arm ......... I had to wait for my friend to walk into the garden, roar with laughter at my predicament and eventually tip me backwards and set me free
