Yes - dig up and take the best bits from the outside and discard the middle. You'll get loads of decent clumps if it's a biggish plant BB. I always cut the foliage back by about half in each clump to give it a chance to establish, and I usually pot them up for a while but you can probably plant them straight away if your soil and conditions are right. 

Pale yellow or lemon plants

Dove - I was going to suggest Achillea too - perfect choice! 

Bees Lemon is quite subtle - lovely choice. I have a white broom in flower just now which is creamy. I love it. I know you don't perhaps want something that big but it can provide a good backdrop.

Dark pond water

As the weather warms up the blanket weed and algae begin to grow so that can make the water dark. You may also just have some wildlife stirring up sediment. That's a good thing Justin!

Is it muddy looking or green?

Any of the above will do Dove. I like an investment, especially when it's useful...

Woodland plant id's please

Hart's tongue fern is  a lovely plant, and I'd like to have it in this garden as I had it before. I never used to like ferns of any kind much, but I grew to love them after watching one slowly unfurl in a previous garden.  Cow parsley/hogweed flowers are  beautiful - that's a really good close up pic Peanuts.  I agree that it's funny how we can change our view of  plants -  including 'weeds' !

Morning Dove 

What are you buying me at the auction? 

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. I might need some of that coffee later. Not sleeping well these days 

Hope all goes well with son MrsG. Lovely moon 

Dry here for now so might get something done later. Grass all cut yesterday after work. Will need to do some tying in of clematis Etoile Violette as she's turned into a triffid after all the rain and a bit of warmth - occasionally! My White Triumphator tulips - aren't. I think they're Purissima, after a bit of googling. Very pretty though, and picking up the colour from a little hosta nearby.

Off for a look round before I have a shower and go to work
