Warm, bit cloudy, occasional sun.  Fine for pottering.

Something for the weekend.......enjoying gardens and flowers.

Cloudy & fairly warm this morning, sun came out in the afternoon & the sky's clear-ish now.  Only a little breeze.

Good Evening FORKERS

Your bit about your lupins reminded me of the Monty Python sketch - a spoof on Robin Hood but he was called Dennis Moore (!) When he stole from the rich, instead of saying 'your money or your life',  he said  'your life or your lupins'. I always think of it whenever I hear lupins mentioned  


My OH often complains that they never repeat that one, I only vaguely remember it.

He thinks it was a highwaymen who stole the lupins then took them to the poor who complained "All he ever bring us is lupins, never anything useful like money, oh no, only lupins; the house is full of them"  Then off he'd gallop to get some more!

If he turned up in our garden just now he provide ample for the poor!!

Weed or Not? Photo's here

I wondered if you were watching Verd - with the National Collection of Geums on it!

I'd love to go - gardens, cake & a celebrity (Woodgreenwonderboy), what more could you want?? Well for me, maybe 600 miles closer would help!!

Anyway I hope that everyone from here who goes has a lovely time, the sun shines & Ww raises lots of money for charity.

Ww, I hope that you manage to get everything done in your garden that you need to, before The Big Day, & may all your weeds be little ones!

Presumably Ggirl will be reporting in after the event to let us know what the cake was like. Oh, and the gardens too.

I've just been pulling out masses of variegated ground elder, Aegopodium podagraria, it's gone into my 3 fuschia ricartonii. Glyphosate in the spring, again, for next year. Done it before, before the fuschia starts growing - but it always comes back.

Oh dear, I dabbed my variegated ground elder with glyphosate a few days ago - looks like the first of many applications. It's in a raised bed, maybe I can put in a physical barrier "thinkingcaponsmiley"

Could his name be Dennis, Highland Jennie.

I have also asked why they spell 'Ambulance' or 'Police' backwards on vehicles.  Doh!!!

10 out of 10 Tina!

My "party piece" when young was to recite the alphabet backwards, taught by an aunt & we had (short!) conversations in kcab gnals (back slang).  My wierd brain  still often "translates" words into reverse (why???) so ecnalubmA or eciloP would seem not unusual to me (I know, I know!!)
