Really enjoyable GW this evening.  Loved the erythroniums - I have one - I need more - also loved  the alpines 

What is this larvae?

Posted: 25/04/2014 at 21:19

I don't know, I don't recall ever seeing those - I'm just wondering whether they're larvae of New Zealand Flatworms - I've never seen those either but googling brings up some similar looking creatures.  

As Nut says - take the plants back.

Broad Beans

Posted: 25/04/2014 at 19:36

I find that like runner beans, broad beans benefit from moist soil at flowering time - if you've had the dry spell that we've had, a good watering might help and certainly wouldn't do any harm.

Yes, Ma will be 90 tomorrow.  We talked about it today - she'd forgotten it's her birthday tomorrow and had no idea how old she'll be - then she laughed and said that she'd always thought that only old people had 90th birthdays!!!  

Glad you've got the worms Clari 

Hope everyone's going to have a lovely evening and hopefully the weather will pick up and we'll be able to get out into the garden for at least some of the time 

what is this flower?

It's a bit of a guess, but could it have been one of the Verbascums?
