Well, as long as Wonky will share her coffee and Darjeeling with me, I'm going to take a huge comfy bed, duvet and pillows   The Great Bed of Ware will do just fine

What is this plant?

Posted: 06/03/2017 at 12:23

It's called Honesty - Lunaria annua - a hardy biennial with either lilac or white flowers.  Very easy to grow and self seeds around without becoming a nuisance. 

A really pretty thing. 

Does this look good or what.

It's a very straightforward recipe and a great favourite here at this time of year

I find it takes a bit longer to cook than the recipe suggests.

Pdoc - glad you enjoyed your treat - Hockney fans here - hoping to get to the show at some time but life's a bit busy at the moment.  Glad you enjoyed Pollen St Social too - a bit pricey for us tho'.  I keep spending my money on plants and paint

BL, the shorter my hair is cut the more often it needs cutting, and it was mid January that it was cut very short so it's lasted quite well really

Does this look good or what.
