That would be lovely Dove. Do you still have my address or will I PM it to you?

Anytime that suits you would be fine - I'd probably pot them up for winter and plant out in spring anyway.  

How are you at multi taskin'?

That's a lovely combo Dove. Did you grow the chives form seeds? Never seen those - and they'd fit in my west-ish facing border where I need a bit of vertical but not too much width. 

Crieff is around 30 to 40 miles south of where I was last weekend BL. It's a lovely area altogether

There's one called Midsummer Beauty - looks very similar to that. It's a fairly easy one to obtain so it could certainly be that  

New gardening show

Seen most of it before too, so I didn't pay much attention.

I did feel sorry for the little man with his statues in the 'housing asscociation flat' garden. Would they rather it was a just a manky bit of badly maintained, lacklustre grass? Everyone else seemed to love it.  He had a great attitude to the stupid council one. Wonder what they'd have done if he'd put a statue of David there....

Morning all/afties Pat - hope you've enjoyed your trip since you'll have already gone....

I could d o with one of those driers here too Pp! We seem to have had quite a bit of rain overnight - grass looks lovely here  

Did the bees come home with you too chicky? I have a vision of you flapping your arms while driving now.... 

Clari - nothing WD40 can't do.... 

Anyone watching that thriller on BBC1 - One of Us?  Can't resist a good murrrrder - that's what happens when you're raised on Taggart.  Filmed in Peebles, so it's very pretty even if it's far fetched. 

I shall have a quick look round before work beckons. Nearly Friday and then I'm off for a week - huzzar! 

Have a good day everyone

Just to add to the Scone/ scon debate - when it's Scone - the place - it's Skoon  

Can't face anything 'ox related' since I was a child and threw up in the bath after we had it for dinner...

Canna lilies

It's a good time to look in B&Q for Cannas - they often have them for a few quid at this time of year (September really) as they're getting rid of everything that's not completely hardy and is surplus....

Sorry Anne!

Honestly - I go to work for a few hours and some of you are nursing hangovers or going a**e over tit in burns or getting bitten on belly buttons....

Hosta - since I don't partake, and you're seven months to the good, ( well done love, by the way) I think we can be very smug and titter a bit...

Hope you're  ok doc - you have Mrs doc to look after 

Lovely here, so I'm going to shove some sort of joined up meat in the oven and go out and do some 'stuff'. Just in case Joyce's rain gets here soon....

Did a bitof pottering at lunchtime when I came home - I quite like that. Nice and peaceful 

My lawn is destroyed by What?

Looks like crow damage ( looking for grubs ) to me too. Seems like there's a fair bit of damage there so I'd follow Verdun's advice to help solve the issue.
