Good to hear from you Hosta - glad you got there ok and that you're having a lovely time - presumably you're both well-oiled  and stretched out horizontally by some water with a glass at your elbow

Fingers crossed for Wonky's Wendy's Wish (bit of a tongue twister).  I'd not seen it in flower until fairly recently, or I'd have snagged some cuttings.  I aim to get some next year - Wonky, be warned - Dove's coming to your garden in the summer with a sharp knife and a poly bag

Hannah is Spanish, her ancestors probably lived in the mountains, living on scrub and cold winds!  ....

That's probably my problem too - from a long line of 'good do-ers' - put on weight walking past the cake shop

Can I interlope here please?

My daughter Wonky Womble has the most gorgeous salvia Wendy's Wish blooming away beautifully at the foot of a south facing brick wall in her town centre garden in Suffolk.

Does anyone know this salvia - is it likely to survive the winter where it is?

Not bad here Dove. Not as wet as they said it would be today, about 5 or 6 degrees,  and we didn't have the wind we had yesterday. No jokes now... 

Think tomorrow's to be ok before more rain, wind and sleet comes along on Thursday  

Are you getting more frost tonight? 



Hope not

Hi Fairy    What's the weather like up there now?

Bumblefoot on Chaffinch

It may not be Bumblefoot - there is another viral condition which affects chaffinches causing tumours on the feet


I think the best thing we can do is to keep the feeders regularly cleaned and disinfected.
