Hi Steve, I haven't grown Obsidian, but all the dark ones are happy in some shade.


Only drawback is that you need something bright behind to set them off or they tend to disappear into the background...


Gold/yellow foliaged plants are a good foil for them

Tripe GWRS....  


Joyce...ridiculous am I not?  


DD - so good to hear you feeling positive about your new life. Much love to you xxx   


Yvie - I've never heard that one. 


Watching Man Down and then off to my 'scratcher'. Anyone heard of that one?

I did GD. I've got about a dozen pots of them - several seedlings in each pot. Didn't get round to splitting them so they'll just go out as they are  


I always love seeing them when I'm walking so thought it would be nice to grow some. They were very straightforward.

Hope that eases Yvie 


What's a bobhowler? 


I'm hoping mine come out white or as near as possible Lesley. There aren't many common foxgloves close by, and I don't think anyone round about me has foxgloves. Not that I've seen anyway.  


I'm very excited as one of my Harebells has opened 



I'm quite ridiculously  giddy

I'm beyond excited. I have my first Harebell  



Is it as good as the 'proper' ones in the wild though...



I'm happy enough 


I really need to get out more....

Sheps - you really should. I'd buy it! Make sure there's a good little box for writing stuff in though...


Ppauper...you're a cheeky b***er ....but yes - hurrah!  

Daily wildlife moments

No - definitely clumps of spawn philippa. Last year's came from a burn at the side of a hill in the Campsies. 


This year's were rescued from the top of a boulder on a hill in Glen Douglas, at least fifty feet from the nearest pool.  Not seen much of them ...not surprising really when you consider their original location. They didn't come from very smart parental stock....


Could give you the dates if I look up the pix from the walks!


We had frogs and toads at the last house though -  strings and clumps  of spawn. 

Sweet pea advice please

It has been consistently cold here after the cold spring and then unusual warmth in late May/early June. It's struggled to stay in low teens here for the last two weeks apart from a few hours now and then. Some days it's only just made double figures. Mine are out of the worst of the wind, so they've made some reasonable progress but I expect it's been a bit hit and miss for lots of plants
