PS Saw in one of the gardens today the dandelion sculpture Monty showed on TV on Friday.  It looked splendid, especially the bit that stuck out from the seedhead.

Spent the day in Devon visiting two beautiful gardens - Little Ash Bungalow and Burrow Farm Gardens.Lovely weather and food in the tearooms and the flowers and blossom were all amazing.  I bought a dark red sempervivum for the garden with 16 babies on it needing separated from their parent and an echivaria for the conservatory with four babies.  Busy tomorrow.

Thalictrum aquilegiafolium.  Its leaves are just like those of Granny's Bonnets but the flowers are quite different   I have them in white and pink.  Back of border plant as they grow quite tall..

It has calmed down a bit now so went out dead heading the pansies which were full of hungry bees sheltering among the flowers from the wind.

It does not look any better today Joyce as far as the garden is concerned.  Really strong winds out there which would blow me over so will be housebound again it seems. Trip to Devon next Sunday so hoping the weather will improve.

Rain has not stopped all day and it is now getting dark and a fierce wind blowing.  Forecst for tomorrow is not very cheerful either.

I too am a nettle lover, Kate. Nettle tea is delicious. You can buy the dried variety if you do not have your own source.
