Kate, I can't help you with your leaves, sorry, but when I pick my rhubarb I do get a small amount of sticky clear drippy stuff.

This is a vine weevil larva. About half an inch long and no legs. My first ever question on this forum was the same as yours tinker 2

Geraniums - though I don't know which ones apart from renardii whose leaves are like geckos' feet. And I think I'll have galanthus as it's a long time until s for snowdrop. They're a beautiful relief after a long winter

Gorgeous, Liz!

I was happy to be back in my own garden today. Not that I've been travelling, just that today is the first day it's felt like a proper spring in the garden day. I had a lovely time weeding the rhubarb patch  as well as a selection of other jobs.

Sun is shining here and I have surprises popping up all over the place. Mostly primroses and pulmonarias - and a bee and a brimstone butterfly   My baby blackbirds have flown the nest, haven't seen them anywhere but I have loads of cover and I keep thinking I can hear them.

Hollie hock - hope you have your promised sun - and everyone else too, of course.

Lesley, it's great to hear that you have hedgehogs and are looking after them well. I had four rescue boys last year but they only stayed for a few weeks and left for pastures new. Looking forward to hearing of their progress

Bev, are those your ferns? Gorgeous! I might have to seek advice about pinching your idea

Fritillaria meleagris - definitely in my top 10 of favourite plants

And ferns are great - I'm amazed when I see them growing inside drains and other unusual places!

I love Eschscholzias - Californian poppies. They are good tempered, tough, have lovely ferny foliage and a brilliant splash of colour. And their little pixie-hats that pop off before the flowers open, make me smile.
