So if Beechgrove has the basic stuff for the average gardener what would be the point of GW carrying the same information?

Supper eaten and washed up - on the sofa with a Norfolk G&T  watching the Ireland programme for the second time.

By what sort of bad luck is it that on Mothering Sunday, when we should get a lie in, we have to put the clocks forward and get up an hour earlier than we should 

Any Idea What This Is?

Yes, the berries are toxic - but the flowers are strangely beautiful and fascinating and there's loads of folklore about them.  A wonderful plant in a woodland setting .... just not in a flower border.

Not sure about 'good day' Obelixx - this morning was good, making a casserole for supper and making the pasties and applejack.

But this afternoon I opened the post and have spent my time going through old letters/emails/accounts/bank statements in order to correct the figures contained in a letter received from the solicitors handling the late Aged Ps' estates.  

Nothing complicated - didn't even have to go down the Probate route .... but they seem incapable of doing even basic arithmetic 

Well, I've done it and they'll have to answer to me on Monday.  

Now I shall put the kettle on ..................... 

Plant ID please

That looks to me a a lot like Himalayan honeysuckle Leycesteria Formosa, although I don't remember the leaf edges being serrated
