I Wonder if Anyone Could Help Me...

Bougie, which tv programme was it?  Maybe we noticed it too - or we could look again on iplayer or whatever and see if we can spot it.  

Or, was it a French tv programme?

I must say, it does sound quite like Verdun's suggestion of the Lychnis

Good morning all   Weather's good here too Verdun

Had a bit of a lie in then spilled my coffee on the duvet   Car still at garage - expensive part needed!!!  Good job I bought the shoes yesterday, before I knew about the car 

Think I'll make some scones later on - some plain, some cheese ones as well maybe - we can have them this afternoon when we stop for a cuppa 

Hefty's eaten all his supper   Sun is shining, bed linen in the wash, toast and marmite eaten, another coffee needed, shall I make a big pot or a small one?

What about those free wildflower seeds we all sent for the other night?

They look fine - that's what they do, send up new growth from underground.  They could probably do with a bit of water, compost in bottom pic looks a bit dry - and have your worked out how you're going to support them - they'll get quite top heavy and blow over unless you have some system sorted out.

It wouldn't take long to cut it by hand with a pair of garden shears, if your legs and back are still of the bendy variety - I used to cut a little lawn like this - bit past it now

Or as I've said elsewhere, Auctioneers' Deadstock Sales can be sources of good second hand gardening equipment - and it's free entertainment and usually a cheap cuppa and a bun can be had 


What is this weed?

Celandine - if you can keep it there it's very pretty in a hedge bottom - depends on whether you like the natural look or not.
