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

Shrub Id please

Trial-and-Error wrote (see)

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?

Shrub Id please

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

Any ideas what these are

And at a guess the first is Calendula - Pot Marigold

Any ideas what these are

Could the second one be Echium Blue Bedder http://www.rosybee.com/blog/2012/06/echium-blue-bedder

Good for bees!
