Tiller clogging weed runners

Yes, looks like cinquefoil to me - the runners are like wire!

Whereabouts are you?  Have you had a dry summer?  How much watering have you been doing? 

Mid-summer's not a particularly brilliant time to be planting a tree - they need a lot of care and attention.

Paint colour for this wall?

Blue is great in places where there's good reflected light, like at the seaside - the quality of light is so much more intense because of the reflected light from the sea (hence artists' colonies at seaside places and the use of so much blue/turquoise at the seaside, and why any blue works so well with white) , but without the intense light it needs to look at it's best, blue can look very dull.

Good morning all  G'day Pat 

Cooler this morning, but beautiful - real 'mists and mellow fruitfulness' out there with the low sun shining hazily over the beans, squashes and tomatoes and the dew on the cobwebs glistening .........absolutely gorgeous.

Lovely pics of Southwold BL - glad you had a nice visit - did you find somewhere nice to have lunch?

How do you cope with flies

Posted: 07/09/2016 at 19:29

We don't get many here (hope I've not talked them up) but one house I lived in used to get a lot of flies come indoors in the summer months.  We found that a Vapona Pen was very effective.  It's a clear liquid in a sort of felt tip pen - you draw it around the edge of each window pane - you can hardly see it, but when the flies walk over it, and they usually do, it doesn't take long for whatever the stuff is to kill them.  You just have to sweep or vacuum them up each day.

I liked it because it was invisible and I wasn't spraying noxious stuff into the air.

The ones with the large leaves?  Look like foxgloves to me - should flower next year.

Got rid of 7 Pattypans at tennis, but there's still loads on the 2 plants - we're having two for supper with some french beans and fresh haddock, there's no room in the freezer - it's full of raspberries - think I'll have to make some jam and chutney sometime very soon - I need room to freeze some beans 

Plant identification No. 2 please

I'd go with privet.

Any lilac in the vicinity?  Some lilacs are grated onto the native privet, and the rootstock may have sprung into life.
