I've got a new one:

Q:   What do you call a retired vegetable?

A:   A has-bean  

That could be one of yours Verd

You caught me red handed Verd....and red faced too after I'd seen you...

I think it was your varicose veins not the groceries that made your legs look lumpy.You looked like Nora Batty.

I thought the same as Berghill and Verdun. Wiegela for the top shrub - both pix , Lonicera BG for the bottom left pic and Euonymous for the right hand one, but if  the bottom right is a close up of the bottom left shrub I'd say Euonymous.

Large bird of prey

I know what you mean about curiosity Jim. Just nice to know what it is. The big difference with eagles in flight is the wingspan but it'd be hard to gauge if you don't have another bird to compare it with at the time. Perhaps you'll get another chance to see it.

Sorry Verd, but hose are tights. Can't allow it. Totally inaccurate. Dove wins. Get yer coat ...and doublet 

I now have a vision of you gardening in tights.....

Verdun- it's saying something when I could suggest you move to Scotland to escape gale force winds and torrential rain.  

Be careful when you're out 

Absolutely true that you don't hear all the bits and pieces on the news. 

When you talk about a soggy bottom lilleybee I hope it's the rain you're referring to....

You'd have been in no doubt if it had been an eagle. They are HUGE! I love all birds of prey. Buzzards are really common here but it still thrills me when I see them.

Very good Ashleigh - like that one 

Whiteheather - you've lost me  

I donut know the answer Verd.  

Can we get a clue pretty please?

Love the Hart's Tongue fern/watery pix doc 

I've got three pots with dark reticulata Iris which will hopefully bloom soon. I love them. I'm going to have to go to the nursery for some native primulas. I  promise to keep a firm grip on the credit card...although it's a minimum spend on that of course so could be tricky  

It's always the way - the day after you dump stuff you've kept for months is exactly when you find a use for it. I hate clutter gathering so I'm always going there.

The blackbirds have stripped the cotoneasters and pyracantha here, but only recently as there hasn't been enough severe  weather for them to need it. They're enjoying the apples here too.
