Best runner bean

And the rest of us in the frozen north (instead of sunny verdunland)have only just put the seeds in. Don't worry folks, still plenty of time to plant seeds and get a good harvest. My broad beans at  getting a good set of pods though.

Plant ID please

That's a bit of a prize specimen of a weed. Have  you been feeding it?

They did a patch of  these in the local garden centre. They were in desperate need of thinning. Unless you can recognise  the seedlings,you will get nothing like  the picture.

Oak Tree shedding leaves

Is it a big oak or a new tree?

Old trees that have   been pruned can get infected with the bracket fungus through pruning scars. A healthy tree should be able to ward off fungal attack.

  A new  tree may be suffering from wind burn or lack of water.

We are going to be eating late. I forgot the time, was filthy, needed a bath,so its in the oven now.

Lots of planting done today, four large dahlias that were in large buckets and 3 foot tall just had to go in. Big holes dug, through the clay and down to the shale!!!!

Lots of FYM added and what weed roots I could get out of the claggy bit are out.

Weather has been sunny here all afternoon, as opposed to the forecast which was dire. We cancelled a BBQ that we could have had.
