It's like carpets in loos. Why did anyone think that was a good idea?....

At least once the roof's on the weather won't be so much of an issue. Hopefully the men can crack on with it then

What a lovely set of pix Hefty.  That first one could be a painting. I really like the moth too.

Is it looking bonny now Steve? Was wondering where you'd gone 

What lighting conditions does wild garlic like?

Posted: 15/09/2015 at 22:00

It certainly grows in very dense shade - it's everywhere round here. The wet weather in spring probably helps 

It might not look effective if you only have garlic which is pretty for a short time and then it's just strappy, garlicky green leaves! Artjak and philippa have given some good suggestions for other planting to lengthen the season. If the area's on the dry side, you might be better growing plants which will thrive in that rather than trying to alter the conditions to suit the garlic better.

Please do chicky. Scotland will welcome you with open arms - and I'd be happy to personally take you on a tour  

Bring a raincoat though...

Plant ID please

It looks like the one I see regularly on hills, which is presumably the alpina one.

Always looks so pretty there, but it has plenty of room to do it's thing!

Welshonion - you're so right about the colouring on starlings I hate them for their messiness, but the beauty of their  'oil on water'  blue/green feathers is so striking. Same with magpies

The olive grove's looks gorgeous artjak. 

That second plant is interesting. Bit like the flowers on ivy.

Hosta - send her a copy of Bowie's 'Queen Bitch'...

It's her loss though.

Lyn - do you just want Hosta away on holiday so that you can pop round and nick some plants? 

Glad you had a good visit with ma Dove. At least in her own world she's happy. It would be so much worse if she was aggressive at seeing you as so often seems to be the case fro many families. 

Sounds like you had a nice afternoon visit lily

RB - we're all quite small - especially oldest fairylet - so it was only 'snug'...

Glad you all enjoyed them -  I won't bore you with the other two hundred...


Do you think I could get a job with the tourist board?...
