Robin Bathing

Posted: 10/09/2014 at 13:13

Just wonderful, we have currently a juvenile Robin visiting our garden along with many other birds but I disturbed him when I went to close our back door and he had been bathing in what we laughingly call our water feature. This is an old under desk waste bin filled with rain water with two water plants in it. He then proceeded to 'dry' out on the companion bench, unfortunately do not have a photograph of this. 

Plant ID again please.

This plant was given to me by a former colleague, along with others on the occasion of my retirement.

I think it might be an Auricular but am not at all sure.


Back for some more small flower ID's, please.

I do not know the first plant but I would say the purple/blue one is a Delphinium, lovely plants which slugs and snails just love.

You will need to root prune this plant as it likes to travel across the garden.

Hello Verdun

Taken longer than expected but here is the photo.

Hello Verdun

Many thanks for this information, I will certainly give this a go when the plant has stopped flowering. It is currently still full of lovely pale yellow, pale people and deeper purple blooms.

I will take a photo and upload it to the network.

Once again very many thanks.

This is my first message, so apologies if it does not make sense. I have a beautiful tri-coloured wallflower, originally bought 3 but have lost two. The one remaining after looking like a dried up twig has blossomed into a beautiful plant. Many of you are saying that you take cuttings, are these from the stems or the roots?
