2 has lilac shape leaves, but I cannot enlarge the photo so....

That's planting sweet peas, not plating. We need the edit button back.

Mine just came with some damp newspaper.

While I was plating sweet peas, I tipped them out of the roottrainers and found a vine weevil grub.  Considering they were on a shelf in the greenhouse, I wasn't expecting that.

A tasty morsel for the robin though.

I got about two thirds of the sweet peas in. Now it's chucking it down with rain. Sue Pollard and Winston. Churchill will have to wait until tomorrow now.

I had 900g of live mealworms  arrive today. The blackbird loves them. I've put them in the garage fridge. Do I feed them?

I'm only getting emails about pm's, and that is all I want.  Having to untick every time will be a pain in the wrist.

First paeony of the year

My old tree peony is a single dark red...delayayii  I think. It was planted in semi shade but has run under a path to form a thicket in shade. I cut down and dug out all the original planting, but any bit left in sends up a new shoot. It stand about five foot tall.

Clematis - Daniel Deronda - odd coloured flower

It's caused by that cold snap we had while the flower buds were initiating. Now it's getting warmer they should revert to type.
