Gardening with the enemy

Exactly my point OL. As the supposedly superior race, we should know better but sadly, many don't.

Scott- what is the matter with these cretins!! Good for you to hang on in there. What message do they send their children if they have any. Rabbits, foxes, slugs, snails, weevils and lily beetles are nothing compared to horrible humans and the things they do. 

id the plants in my garden!

3 is a dog rose - the  berries are the hips which follow the flowers.

4 is a Campion

6 is Hawthorn

7 is a Pieris

8 is Honeysuckle

9 is Bergenia

11 is an Iris

12 is Quince (Chaenomoles)

13 is Caltha ( Marsh Marigold)

Will come back to the others if someone else doesn't get them. Making dinner just now!

Jack - it's lovely that you're so enthusiastic about your garden. Be warned - it's a lifelong obsession and may take over your every waking moment!

Lovely pix fidget. That avenue with the hedges and that vista....hmmmm...drool...

I like Trilliums too. They're very unusual. Not sure I'm patient enough for them!

Is that your OH in the pic - with the pale blue shirt and the hat?....

Pinkypoo is new and having trouble with putting pix on that will enlarge to get ID for shrubs etc in a new garden on another thread.  Said I'd bump this thread up because David might be able to help a bit with the techie wotsits.

Nice spuds 

I waved my wand on that poppy KEF. Honest guv...

Rain here and none too warm. I'll be able to do my weed n feed soon.

Slate patio sounds nice Dove. I was thinking of one for here once I do the grass but not sure. Had another thought on the Ophio. Square lead planter with them round the edge and a 'cone' of Holly.

Bumping up  for Pinkypoo to get techie help - although the thread was on first page anyway 


Where are the kittens and mittens  then KEF? 

Help!! - new gardener!

I'm not techie enough Pinkypoo - Salino helped me with putting the pix on here by suggesting using an external site for the photos, so I've got mine on Photobucket. I think I'm just lucky with my camera or something because mine just seem to be the right size when I transfer them from the Windows thingy on the laptop. DavidK's camera thread art? David's very techie- he should be able to help 

I'll see if I can bump the thread up and you could post on it for help Pinky.
