I need a heatwave for the 20th and 21st June, which is when we are having our garden party/engagement party.  His family are not coming, other more important things to go to.

All the more  Pimms and scones for the rest of us.


What to do with laburnum?

Ooh, thats a good idea. No children allowed in this garden because there are lots of poisons, and nasty things that sting if annoyed.  Actually its not the dog you have to worry about, it's the owner.

OH  is staying tonight and coming back tomorrow night. He's somewhere on the gower peninsula. I could have gone but I thought i had too much to do in the garden. Apart from watering in the greenhouse, I've done nothing,.

Very blustery here. OH has gone to Wales.  He is teaching a Malaysian who has a translator because he doesn't speak English. He is working for a Japanese company. Apparently the locals are upset about importing labour. I wonder why.

Also he says the rain is coming horizontally.

All I've done today is some washing and I've picked some flowers that have been flattened.

Missing Bees

Lots of bumbles and tree bees on the alliums. Honey bees on the angelica.

Is this plant safe?

The ricin is in the seeds.  Just don't eat the seeds. Castor oil is extracted after boiling which deactivates the ricin.

Bit early for me, woody. I've not got out of bed yet

Have you tried the strawberry one?

Teasel. On good ground can go up to eight feet. Well they did in my garden anyway. Thee bees love them in summer, and goldfinches love the seed.
