I like the little window in the screen, fairygirl.

Is it a view from a window in the house,? or just on passing.

The small lurker in the courgette patch is 19 inches long and weighs over 10 lb.  Thats the maximum my kitchen scales will weigh. I might put it on the bathroom scales.

Anybody got any good marrow recipes?

.The other two are bigger. I'm leaving them now to see what they can do.

I found the suntan lotion. OH had put a pile of T shirts on top. I was beginning to think I had imagined buying it.

If its been deweeded, you could give it a rest for a year,and then reconsider.

I have lots of weeds in my lawn, it doesn't bother me. If you want a bowling green type, then its upt o you. My lawn just gets mown on an irregular basis. if you feed it you have to mow it more.

 Last years brugmansia cuttings.

A hedychium originally grown from seed, about to flower. This is the only but that survived the heater breaking down in the greeenhouse in the middle of the really bad winter. minus 10 in the greenhouse is not good.

A late flowering canna. Two more dark leaved ones in the garden are in a race with the yucca. Will they flower before the frosts or not?
