No I didn't think it was nyger either.


I think you're right with Common Fleabane  - the pics on here are spot on

Think I'd better plant it over by the pond 


Thanks

This 'appeared' and grew in a bucket of old cactus compost stuck in a quiet corner - I thin it only appeared this spring but it could have been there last year too, so it could be an annual or a biennial.  I've left it alone out of curiosity as I didn't recognise it.  Today it has flowers appearing.  


The leaves are quite pungent if you squeeze them.  


Stem and leaves slightly fuzzy.

Dove, drink water before and after on a hot day 


See original post

 Did that ... but obviously not enough water and too much wine 


Clari ...no lemonade in the fridge ... only rosé, cider and beer ...bad planning eh? 


A piece of toast and marmite has been eaten, the buddleja Miss Ruby has been dead-headed and the sprinkler has been put on the parched front border ... normal service is resuming ... gently ... 


We've decided to have 'picnics' for our meals today - OH has been to Wrose and returned with black pudding scotch eggs, saucisson sec, baby gems, crisps and some smoked mackerel, cream cheese and lemons for a paté, and we've lots of tomatoes, basil and mint in the garden and mozarella in the fridge for a tomato and moz salad.  Big bottles of fizzy water are in the garage fridge and raspberries will be picked in a moment.  There's plenty for everyone, so I'll whisk up some meringues ... can you lot bring cream or ice cream ...

Well done Hosta ... it obviously suits you 


We don't drink much - OH has a couple of pints of beer a couple of times a week and I'll have a glass of wine or two once or twice a week and the rest of the bottle is used for cooking ........ but somehow yesterday, after spending the afternoon wielding the new electric lawn rake thingy in very hot and dusty conditions, the very good French rosé just went down like lemonade ............
