Lucy states that this year's theme is garden wildlife.

I thought that was self explanatory.

Wish list for seed and plant swap

Foolio, I have some aquilegia Black Barlow seeds.

I will be putting my full seed list on when I have finished gathering. Some stuff is yet to ripen fully.

Tomato soup and cheese scones sounds good. Its raining here but the potatoes under the top oak are still bone dry, so I've put a soaker hose on.

Hope your mum shows some improvement soon, Verdun.

I found a new (to me) nursery on t'interweb. Norwell nurseries near Newark. Not too far for me to pick mum up and take her for the day out. They are shut all August though, so in a couple of weeks I think, for late Autumn colour. There is a garden and pond attached as well.

Identify please.

Thanks,bizzyb. That fern gives me an idea for the clay patch by the wall.

It looks like picton has purpurea hybrids as well.

The bottom dahlia looks like a lions mane. It is huge, the size of a dinner plate. It is supposed to be pinelands princess, but it looks more like maniac.

 The other two are seedlings I have kept going  for a couple of years. I like the sunset coloured one. The bees like the pinky purple one.

I warned my magnolia....

I passed a magnolia the other day , that I thought was a Spring flowerer, it was in full bloom.

I have Primula viallii sending up new flower buds, double primroses in flower, and an oriental poppy in bud. Also grape hyacinths are sending up leaves.
