Demanding little ****ers aren't they Dove? 

Lots of sparrows here but the blue tits seem to be hiding. There's a house further along from me which has a nice corner plot with some mature trees and lots of honeysuckle and clematis etc so I think it's bird heaven in there for them Hopefully more of them will gradually move in here in time though. The starlings seem to all have fledged and moved on which I 'm glad of. There are too many nesting in roofs here

I'm an expert faffer Dove  


Dry here so I will get some grafting done today  - nice to see everything growing. My toms are a bit behind but they're catching up. I gave a couple of tiny ones to the couple a few doors away for the two kids. They've got a little plastic greenhouse and want to get the children interested so that's nice to see. 

My PMs seem to be fine - I don't know if it's just down to the browser I have or my laptop though. Must test it by sending Gardengirl one to see  if she wants a white buddleia. She's always on too late at night for me! 

Off for a look round - cup of tea needed first

Night KEF - I'm weary too so might have a lie down. The rain didn't really happen apart from a spell this morning but it's quite oppressive here. Wish it would make up it's mind. 

Tomorrow is another day.  

Enjoy the rest of the evening everyone 

whats happened to my lily?

Fingers crossed! 

nut's right about staking - a wild bit of weather at the wrong moment would see it off. A couple of carefully placed canes will do the job.

Good shout nut. I hadn't thought of that.

Mystery climbing gernaium

Never heard of a climbing pelargonium Peanuts but perhaps it likes the site it's put in so grows to a good size. Could it be that it's been in hanging baskets so she's made the assumption it's a climber because it's been high up? If there were other shrubs or containers below it, that might have given an illusion of height.

I'm sure someone will know a lot more than me about it though

Perhaps it's just going to throw up lots of extra growth and give a great display - I hope so! 

Have you had it long and what colour flowers does it have Gdonkey?

Gdonkey - is it a Eucomis - pineapple lily - rather than an oriental type? It looks very similar to that. What are the flowers like or have you not had any on it before?

I just had pasta with veg and chilli and chicken KEF...not my favourite either really 

I was hoping archie would have some spare curry too - not had any for a long time.

Chatted with a neighbour earlier and also my friend who was out walking her dog, so that's the world put to rights 

I presume there's f******l on so that's why all the menfolk have vanished...glad I don't have to suffer any of that nonsense any more

I could swear that it looks nothing like the plant from which I stole the seed.


Perhaps you can market it as a new variety.

Best not say how you propagated it though...I won't say nuffink doc
