 Sausage sandwich eaten, back to the garden for me too. Must put the hot water on, I'm going to need a long bath afterwards.

Panda, one of the hellebores has your name on it. Also I can sort you out some scatter seeds of annuals for your patch.

Punkdoc, sorry to hear about your roof, i guess its more buckets you need and not drysuits.

I have been clearing encroaching ivy from the old hellebore bed beneath the magnolia. I have found a few more seedling hellebores and potted them up, also Euphorbia griffithi dixter is shooting where I don't want it, so I have a couple of those now potted. Other than that I am muck spreading. Currently waiting for a sausage sandwich and a mug of coffee, then more muck spreading.

Have a good day.

What is this seed?

I still think more likely a pine of some type. There are some very big cones amongst the pines.

Big pine cone?

Monkey puzzle seed perhaps. they come in a big cone that falls apart. seed size would be about right. The cone is about the size of a football.
