Morning all  

Pansy ... Glad your brother is on the mend and well enough to have a winge.

Washing left out on the line all night didn't cause it to rain  

The far is loaded with all sort of stuff (plants, mags, BBQ!) to deliver to Wonky ... Looking forward to seeing the changes in her garden, and the greenhouse of course !

Good morning Fairy  have a lovely weekend. 

It strikes me that Clari's ex employers struggled with the fact that she was better at the job than they were at theirs ... 

Just watched a single swan fly past the bedroom window towards the marshes 

Why have these leaves gone brown?

Drought can also produce discolouration and most areas have had little if no rainfall for a good while,  so make sure they're not thirsty, but they don't look it to me

Hello Pat and everyone  It's an absolutely beautiful morning ... and although I left a line of washing out it hasn't rained ... I may need to water the lawn tomorrow if we've not had more rain by then to dissolve the weed & feed on the front lawn.

Try Broadleigh bulbs. You can buy online. Very reliable - I've bought quite a few native bulbs from them.

Our neighbour had tree bumbles in the roof space above a bedroom window. The 'guards' did their dancing outside the entrance right by an open window, but apparently none went into the bedroom.

Sounds ideal.  Give them a good soaking with a couple of  buckets full of water first, then the mulch will hold the water down at the roots rather than letting it evaporate 

Plant ID please
