That looks to me like an azalea.

I only have access to the photos on my phone at the moment, but these make me smile. 


Lovely idea for a thread Wonky 

My mum passed away yesterday.

Ecokid ((hugs))  So sorry to hear of your loss.  You have nothing to reproach yourself for - a few months ago I sat with my mother into the wee small hours knowing she was going - then the staff said that I must have a rest and made me a bed in the next room - half an hour later she'd slipped away - they said that often people wait until a loved one has left the room. 


I'm learning to enjoy the happy memories - I hope that you soon find the happy days take over from the sad ones.

Raised Bed Problem

Posted: 12/02/2017 at 11:10

Drat and double drat!!!  I've just realised that the photos of the sleepers are on my laptop which is currently out of action awaiting attention from clever IT tech son in law - I'm sorry


But it sounds as if you've got the idea - we did it as KT53 describes, and the joints and corners were staggered like with a course of bricks, just as you say.

Good morning all  G'day Pat 


Its white out there!  We have at least an inch of snow!  I wasn't expecting that!

Help on a plant ID please

It looks to me like Alexanders - reputedly introduced to the UK by the Romans who grew it as a vegetable. It is very popular with foragers and I suggest that the best way of keeping it under control will be to harvest and eat it.


And cut it down each year before it seeds, then it won't spread from its allotted space. 


But get it checked by someone knowledgable before eating it as there are some vaguely similar plants which would do you no good if you ate them.
