Name of this anenome

Queen Charlotte is probably the most common pink one, but I thinkit's a double.Lady Gilmour is another pink which is readily available.  

You'll find plenty in Garden Centres just now though

I think all 'nuisance' neighbours should occasionally be subjected to Wagner's 'Ring' Hosta.....

If I have to listen to their screaming, feral brats after a day of noise at work, they can listen to Dylan growling at full volume for  a couple of hours...

or maybe I'll get some Black Sabbath....

Pulmonaria flower in spring, so perhaps you just haven't noticed it or it's been hidden by other planting. It's a perennial rather than an annual though

Hosta - I  think the residents of Troon should capture him on his next visit, strap him into a bogey, wheel him out to the beach and he can personally keep the tide back - a la King Canute.... 

Oh - and hang one of their Mexican flags round his neck while they're at it. 

It's a half hour drive for me - I'd go along with my camera 

He's a repellent creature.

...and is he hoping the Mexicans will build that one too?

Probably dry. Check the soil at the base and if it is, give it a bucket of water, and again in a few days

Like myself Dove....  

It's all pleasant viewing I reckon. You can take from it what you want and leave what you don't 

I agree with those r***y chimes...the ordinary kind are bad enough....

He does nothing for me either obelixx, but I'm not usually keen on 'pretty' men anyway  

Rubbish weather here too - it was supposed to clear up....

We had a lady from  the Scottish Farmer in today doing a 'piece' on us. God - I hope they don't print any pix with me in 'em...

Hoping to do Ben Starav and his two pals this weekend LP. It will depend largely on the weather which is looking ok-ish for Sunday - for now anyway. You can do the horseshoe of just two (Starav and Glas Bheinn Mhor)  but the outlying one is a pain to go back and do if you don't add it in on the same day so.....

Better have extra rations of  porridge

Nick Skelton's going to be on the BBC breakfast programme in a few mins Dove. I have to go to work though.

I bought half a dozen packets of seed last night chicky. Mostly new ones to me, and perennials too.  I fear it may be a slippery slope....

Better go - catch you all later

Morning all/afties Pat-  glad you've got some rain. Plenty here too....

Glad you've enjoyed your bit of time off DD. May you continue to enjoy your new found freedom  

Do you think Hosta's wired to the moon now after his coffee - should we go and bap him on the head to knock him out for a while? 

In trying to preserve what I grow I did lots of research, here is what I learned

Do you think we shoud call the cops?  911  over there isn't it ?  

That poor girl just wanted someweher to live and now she's in the freezer....

Perhaps I've misunderstood
