Doesn't it get dark early?!

Posted: 24/08/2014 at 21:58

Not many swallows and house martins in the sky today either.  Looks like they are departing earlier than normal like the swifts did.  I always feel sad when they go back home to South Africa.

An unusual tree to be growing in a domestic garden.  Had the area once been part of a large estate or parkland?  I get terribly upset when trees are felled but if it is a big problem then sadly that would probably be the only answer.  Hope you can find a sympathetic tree surgeon.

The bats usually circle our garden at twilight and we haven't seen them for a couple of nights now.  I think they may have hibernated already as it is so cold.  Seemed extra black tonight though.

Perhaps you could ring the vet just in case she is suffering.

Just wandered into this thread and up popped your caterpillar picture Orchid Lady - I think it's brilliant.

Will I be lucky ?

Those poppies look so pretty Wendy.  No reason why you shouldn't be able to sow the seeds in the spring - they can also self seed as well.  No harm in trying.

Verdun and Salino - I have been very cruel and naughty to the poor plant to leave it in its pot all year.

I hope by this time next year I will be able to post on here a stunning picture.

With nothing to loose I have just pruned out the "ill" looking bits prior to planting in the ground and it looks 100 times better.  Fingers crossed for next year.

I had to give it another chance Nut although I agree with your sentiments.

I thought it might be pot bound too so I just put it in a bigger pot today, but it's not.  I think I will plant it in the garden today as you suggest Nut as it is obviously not happy. Thanks.

Nearly one year on and the miscanthus hasn't improved (see picture).  Should I have cut it down in the spring as it didn't die down as expected (see above message)?  I didn't put it out in the soil  in spring perhaps that was my error.
