Bushman - onwards and upwards my friend 

Wonky - take care of yourself and get well soon ((hugs))

See you all later ............. have a good day folks

Hello folks we're back from seaside and suppers been eaten. Now I'm on the sofa Come on Andy! although I do have a soft spot for Juan Martin after all his troubles in the past etc. he was brill at Wimbledon. 

Dew Drops hope they sort your relative out soon. It's such a worry isn't it?

It looks to me like a recent division which hasn't started to grow on yet.  I divide hostas much earlier in the season than this so they get the chance to grow on and form good plants which will then really fill out next year.

Don't think that the nibbles would be an issue for me at this stage of the season.  I'd be more concerned about value for money - can I ask what you paid for this and was it an Ebay type purchase from an anonymous individual, or did you buy it from a recognised plant nursery's website?

How very kind of you DHR ... 

Have you been leaning over Clare Balding's shoulder or riffling through her handbag?  You must have some sort of inside information ... I'm sure such detail isn't available to ordinary mortals

Morning Wonky   Keep your germs down there please 

Chicky - we've got a Buddleja Miss Ruby right in front of the sitting room window - we can see our flutterbyes from the comfort of the sofa - OH thinks he saw a Hummingbird Hawkmoth flying away from it yesterday evening, but he's not sure ... 

B. Miss Ruby is great - a really deep pinky red - a hint of magenta - not a huge plant, - probably about 5ft at the moment (planted the summer of 2014) and a very elegant shape.  Recommended! 

About to eat these mushies. Safe?

If you're interested in fungi, I can recommend this website and Daniel's forays 

and the regular newsletter is always full of good information. 

I have no connection.
