Good morning all

A lovely morning here - a peachy sunrise and a blue sky - birds singing, doves cooing and the grass sparkling with overnight raindrops   Chilly tho' ... 2.6C at the moment.

Yvie DM = Daily Mail - not a paper I buy , but the website can cause amusement in this household!

I did send something via dove, but cant remember what. Was it a buddleja? I think nut hsd roscoea to pass on to Michael? Wonder what happened to him?

I certainly passed on a buddleja and a Molly (and some aquilegias) the former and the latter were from Fidget, can't remember who the Molly was from

Dove, does your dicentra not like shade?  I was planning to buy a white one for a pretty shady spot, but you've made me think again... 

I thought it would so I'm not sure what went wrong - maybe it needed to be a bit bigger before I planted it out ...... we shall see

According to the DM website we're in for a three month heatwave   I'm not going to put money on it

Celandine trouble

Posted: 12/04/2015 at 20:13

The nice thing about celandine (apart from their lovely sunny faces in the spring) is that they die down in the summer and don't reappear again until next year

Well done Verdun - you are such a kind (and sensible) man   As you say, depression is a bu$$er   CBT is the best therapy I know, but you have to be in the right place to be prepared to try it and keep using it.

I dug my white dicentra up at the end of last summer and popped it in a pot - it looks much happier than it did on the Shady Bank - not sure where it's going to live permanently but for now it can flower where it is

It's not a magnolia, but I think it it from the Rosacea family, i.e. a decorative almond (don't know if there is any such thing, doesn't look like a normal almond), or a type of crab apple, or may be even a decorative plum?

But are the leaves right for any of those?

On closer inspection the stamens in Tanya's pics are different to the ones in the Magnolia pictures - back to the drawing board Miss Marple
