I've never known a second flowering with lavender.

Watered and done the sideshoots on the tomatoes and watered all the pots and tubs, picked and ate a few early autumn raspberries and admired a 'flock' of ladybirds on the runner beans - no aphids on there at the moment - do the ladybirds know something I don't? 

Interestingly the ladybirds were all natives, whereas the ones we had in the garden earlier in the year were Harlequins.

Please could someone give me a name?

I find it helpful to do it in really dry weather when the roots shrivel when they're left on the surface of the soil - if the soil is damp it's best to rake after hoeing to gather all the little be$$ers together and burn them

Hmm, the Bush family encourage the gun culture in the US.  If the gun culture was less prevalent perhaps US dentists would be less into hunting .......... ok, a bit tenuous, but give me time

It crops up in our veg patch from time to time - I attack it regularly with the hoe as soon as it appears, and it retreats - it hasn't spread into other areas, but that's only because I'm on my guard!!!

In a previous home we had a new neighbour move in next door with 27!!!  The cottage was one and a half rooms upstairs and the same down!!!  Within a few months most of the cats had legged it to the nearby farms where they had much happier lives (and considerably more food)

Please could someone give me a name?

Dove? "purplish leaves"?

I've got it here, but can't for the life of me give it a name right now

been awake since 5 am and now struggling.

Extract from RHS website:

  • Oxalis corniculata has a creeping habit and small yellow flowers followed by upright seed capsules. A purple-leaved colour variant is quite common

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
