Ash Tree Stump

Robot- beautiful pictures, really lovely.

Gary & Gracie- The yellow plants that I have are not Rudbekias. I thought maybe they were Bupthalmun, because they seem to be the closest match and all the insects love them.

The leaves look different to your pic Gary, I'm thinking they could be a different strain/species of them.

Hi Matt, Like the last picture, did you get the stump out? I agree cut the main root off and get that stump out of there

Plant Confirmation please

Thanks James for the photo. I've not seen this before,on first glance it reminds me of an Echinecea. Like the fact that it's attractive to insects and it self seeds

Yes Peter I believe it is  Seeing a pair of toads in my garden was fantastic, hopefully we will have some toadlets soon. I saw a type of dragon fly on my washing line today. Over the last few evenings I've seen bats flying about, all firsts for this year.

They love them- I  first grew them  in a pot many years ago, I was amazed how many caterpillars could be on one plant, they really do eat!  I love the white butterflies

Hi Matt,  Lovely Cosmos in the planter , mine are just starting to get going, maybe we are in for a lovely, late show?

I have some of  the white flowers,acidanthera............ I think.  MIne are in pots and are in  no mood to start flowering. I've just a couple of green shoots. Get this feeling that my garden is very,very late- My Lilies have only just come into bloom

On a positive note- I've seen one flower on my Scabioius- and I've seen an insect on it

Out of interest- what are the pink trailing plant in pic 2?

Sweet picture Pam

Gracie- I think it's a type of buphtalmun looks very similar to a pic that Gary Hobson posted , so am guessing it's that. Tbh I thought it was weed, I just left it this year to fill a gap so very pleased that it has so many insects attracted to it.
