Blossom Tree Identification

Posted: 09/04/2014 at 22:27

No, I can't see anything either.

DebH, can you load using the tree icon in the toolbar to load a photo from your desktop.?

Cheapest beer in Lidl. 4 cans of bitter for £1.99. The slugs loved it.

Oh wouldn't let me use his Pedigree.

Mass slaughter in my garden last night. All due to a cheap can of beer and some slug pubs. 3 huge ones and about 30 little ones. Filtered out the dead ones and reset. The ducks appeared and ate bread but turned  their beaks up at beer soaked slugs.


What is this plant

Have you a photo?

I pot them on into 3 inch pots (7cm if you are metric) so the roots of individual plants don't get tangled.  I pinch out the tops at about 6 inches  to make them branch.

Kiftsgate is opposite Hidcote. You can park once and visit both if you allow a full day.

OH is not the only one bounced from the gastropub. When he arrived at the other place, there were three others that had been bounced as well.  Different excuse. curiouser and curiouser.Smacks of sharp practice. I suspect deliberate overbooking to fill a quiet Monday night, and then bounced for the rest of the week.

Anyway the food is better at the new place. I hope he doesn't get used to it, he's getting fish n chips from the chippy tomorrow.

That maroon one looks like a day lily to me too.

Maybe you'll have them before wimbledon, Panda.

Lawnmower grumbles...

I'd dig it up and plant flowers instead

OH has been bounced from the gastropub he stayed in last night, as the receptionist that took his booking on Sunday, booked him in in July, and they are full tonight. However the new hotel looks better.

Sunny here for most of the day but a bit windy. I cleared most of the weeds out of the veg patch, soon be ready for planting.

Verbena bonariensis cuttings I took off some plants three weeks ago have rooted well. I love freebies.

The slugs are out in force so a trip to lidl for some cheap beer, and I filled up lots of slug pubs around the garden. I knew all those little glass ramekins the puddings come in would be useful.
