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.

Sparaxis grandiflora has the purple reverse to the petals.

They look like a white sparaxis. Are they in flower now? because sparaxis are a tender bulb, usually flowering late summer.

I get an error message if I try to click on followed threads. Nora tells me I have  glitch.

I have installed adblocker plus to get rid of adverts , I could live with the ones on the old site but I am totally p****d off with the B&Q shed in the middle of postings.

Last night we had a shocking experience. Sex on the patio.

Mr and Mrs Mallard have been around a few weeks now, and come to the back door to be fed.

Last night they were on the front. He jumped up and tapped on the window, then the pair went back onto the road, waddled up to next doors, around their back and finally managed to work through the shrubbery onto my back. They had some seed, then  he jumped on top of her, looking very pleased with himself. In broad daylight, ten feet away from us.

I wouldn't know where to start. The last breakaway group have a forum, but I can't say I'm keen.

This is the only forum I have ever belonged to, and now it's broken.

I can't keep using a site that is hurting me physically.

I doubt it, it was in a field. If he/she cant see a chuffing great volvo estate parked up against the fence, he/she shouldn't be driving.

Is there no edit button now?. How do I correct the autocorrect???
