There you are


I think I'm running a close second to you - there's so much that needs doing out there - not least cutting back the perennials - but the goldfinches are still feasting on the rudbeckia seeds.

What is this plant?

They look like Ox-eye daisies to me.

DD - you have my sincere admiration - you're doing really really well   Absolutely mean that!


Wonky - good to see you - wish I had a magic wand ((hugs))


Friend's husband had MND


The sun is shining here too and the feeders are covered with acrobatic goldfinches - as soon as I stop coughing I'll be out there tidying up the grasses and other perennials and making room for new plantings - until then OH has banned me from going out in the cold and damp so all I can do is make plans and then keep changing my mind

a few queries

I planted a sarcococca three years ago - this week, for the first time ever I walked out of my front door and the perfume hit me in the face just as I had hoped when I planted it... the temperature had gone up a few degrees, so I think it must need the slightly warmer air to carry the scent - the same as with my Vib. bodnantense.


The first time I ever really noticed the scent of sarcococca was on a sunny January day by Tower Bridge in London, where there is a large planting in front of a hotel where we were staying.

You're right there Fairy - bonkers!  A Scottish friends brother climbs - Everest, Mont Blanc, you name it and he's on top of it or dangling off it ... A 16hh horse is high for me!

Good morning all  Just waking here. 


That sounds a bit of a grim time Pat - glad all is ok now ((hugs))


Hosta - well done on the anniversary - it's really worked for you hasn't it 


What's it like your way Fairy? Did I hear something about problems on Ben Nevis last night, or was I dreaming?

Everyone I know who had had this lurgy says how totally exhausted they feel , and I've certainly spent a lot of ghe time sleeping - so be careful not to overdo it Pdoc. 


Sweet dreams folks ((hugs))
