I`ve strimmed some of mine down at work but left others depending on their colour, going brown and they`re gone, still green and i`ll leave them for another week or so.

Yes, number 2 is saxifraga umbrosa variegata, love it as the leaves are great to look at even when the flowers are gone

Took a few photos today in between the showers with the new camera, no idea what the poppy is, it just arrived with another variety which unfortunately has no petals after the wind blew them all off







How did you get into gardening?

I`ve pretty much always worked outside from landscape maintenance to greenkeeping to tree surgery, i guess coming from generations of farmers helped but actual full on gardening as a job only a few years ago. My parents always had a tidy garden but i was never interested until i got my first home which was a complete jungle and i was hooked from then.

I have to admit i`m rather enjoying the wet weather at the moment as i`ve just seeded my lawn and i`m on sand so the more rain the better

RE cats, did anyone see the news the other day on that camera survey about cats? they were saying that cats didn`t predate on birds, mice, etc etc as much as they thought. 50 cats followed for a week, 20 dead animals, but then considering there are 10 million cats in the UK and 52 weeks per year i would say that`s quite a lot when cats are a non native species.

MMP, the Mitchell you are thinking of is probably RJ Mitchell, the inventor of the spitfire, Sir Frank Whittle was the inventor of the jet engine and what a difference he has made to the world today.

It would have to be my lavender border alongside the house, smothered in bees, great to look at and great for wildlife so thumbs up from me.
