I'm with Hostafan - a lawn like that looks like astroturf...artificial,sterile and very dull. However, at least it 'is' a lawn and not decking!!

It's my birthday

Thank you so much Lyn and everyone else for your very kind wishes and apologies for this somewhat belated reply.

It has indeed been my birthday today...26th June and I'm now officially past it at 50. I shall get my pipe and slippers. I was given a gorgeous cake today by my stepson and his wife...made with loving care by their neighbour. It was a gardening theme and I shall attempt to upload it. 

A slice will be reserved just for you Verdun


What plant?

Thank you for the ID pansyface...its growing in my stepson's garden. I am growing purple loosestrife but it doesn't look like a relation.

Any idea what this is?

In my experience Rosie hollyhocks produce nice big flowers regardless of how many an individual plant has, within reason of course. I just let mine do their stuff

I've grown Yarrow from seed this year and have several young plants coming along nicely in the greenhouse. They have such lovely and unusual foliage

I have some of this in my pond and I have to say it does indeed have a magical ability to cover the pond's surface completely if you don't keep hauling it out. The non-native answer to duck weed me thinks.

I remember years ago seeing a nature programme with Simon King. He said hornets gave plenty of warning if you approached their nest. They would buzz around you first and if you didn't take heed would bounce off you. Then if you STILL didn't listen, they would sting. I'm not sure if that was his personal experience  I do believe that's an Asian Hornet in your pic Heather, another story in itself...
