What's the star in your garden right now

Posted: 17/09/2014 at 11:19

I've grown that from seed this year, but its not in flower yet.  It does look like it will need staking. I'm growing it in between tree lilies. I'm hoping  the stems from the tree lilies will prop it up.

My Yucca is going to flower. The original one I dug out, it always looked awful after winter, but the root sent up shoots. This is one of those, in the sunniest spot in the garden. It obviously likes it.

Photo wont upload, I'll try again later.

Disappointed with new shed.. how far to take it.

If someone put the phone down on me, with a legitimate complaint, my next call would be to Trading Standards at the local council.

It was running around with the brown mouse last week and  the white one looked fatter, but a shorter tail.

Its tail is shorter than the wood? mouse. Its bigger than the vole we get.

If anything, its more skittish than the usual mice.

Free admission, but I did spend quite a bit in the nursery afterwards.

Well I thought that last week, as it shot off towards the compost heap. I thought an owl would have it or one of the cats that prowl around, but its pretty big, and we saw it first a week ago, so it seems to be doing quite well.

Mice round here are pretty fast. We call one speedy gonzales.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
