Slugs

My forget me nots last year were harbouring lots of slugs. I have pulled out any near the delphiniums.  Two mallards in the garden are more interested in seed via the back door. Hostas near the pond come up intact. I put that down to frogs.

Do you know, I really hate those courses where they want you to role play. Last time I did it , I was accused of being subversive, I just thought I was being realistic.

Quality of plants may not necessarily be the same from the same grower. Most of the Christmas puddings are made in the Matthew Walker factory near here. Harrods and marks and Spencer's are made to differing recipes to Tesco. B and Q may have smaller plants than crocus, grown by the same grower to different specifications.

Punkdoc, I would never think of you as retiring and submissive.

It's a nice day out there. Shame I'm stuck indoors at work

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

In my Dads last few days, he was very agitated, nothing being done even though he was in hospital. It took eight hours of me getting stroppy with nurses and a doctor, before we finally got a consultant out of a and e  to prescribe something to calm him down. Then it took an hour and a half for the drugs to arrive, and 30 seconds for the injection to kick in. We then sat with him for the next 48 hours, but he went peacefully.

Lynne, if you haven't got something for him by now, please call out the doctor as a matter of urgency. It was only when the consultant saw the state he was in that we got anywhere.

Look after yourself. Best wishes..

Good morning , Dove, Joyce,Lynne, Pat, and Verdun.

I hope you had a bit of sleep Lynne.

I can almost smell the gorse as you walk over the dunes, Verdun. How is Spike?

I did think that  Months Nigel has a new lease of life now that young Nell is pulling him around.  I thought that the old one should be keeping the trainee in line, but old Nigel seems to have got quite resigned and submissive.

When I was a kid, our alsation x labrador dog used to have sheeps heads. Half a sheeps head was delivered every monday by the coop. Mum used to pressure cook it, then slice off all the meat, which the dog had with any leftovers and a handful of winalot. Every monday , we used to roll about when the insurance man who used to collect money, always complimented mum on the delicious stew she was cooking.

Plant ID, what is it, please?

Purple one a plant. Bottom green one looks like jack by the hedge aka garlic mustard. weed or wildflower depending on your perspective. Orange tip butterflies like them.

New build house looking for ideas for the garden

First start with preparation. Clay subsoil over builders rubble is not a good start. That is what builders usually leave behind.
