Don't think it is really -  Just made me laugh when I saw it ! Haven't a clue really but sure someone will help you out. I know what you mean about feeding the birds - I had to re-position mine. All sorts of weird and and wonderful stuff growing underneath the feeders.

Please can somebody ID this plant?

Sorry but I'm on Higgy's team . I've got '' shaggy '' and for some reason it's done better than ever this year - loads of flowers. Going to google jumbo hole -never heard of . I use fish, blood and bone everywhere at the beginning of the season - maybe they got a bit more than others. Strange things afoot in the garden this year , had a clematis that came back from the dead and have some oddities growing.

Maybe all the rain .

I woke up with BIG thirst - must be bbq. We didn't have pudding- ate too much. Thanks for explaining that Kate - going to watch the rest today. Saw Mike Oldfield though.  Thought the N. H. S. bit was really good - had small cry probally due to 2 glasses of wine -  I just can't drink anymore -must be an age thing  We have a little rain but got grass cut yesterday so not to bothered . Big job breaking out today. We are going to take some branches off the weeping cherry . It got blossom wilt so I got rid of that and now it's lopsided so it's getting chopped. Houseplants need sorting as well . Geoff, what house plants have you got ? remember you saying you had jungle plants.

Jenny I'm sure everything will be ok - just glad it's only the car . Pam - you deserve your sleep - must have been really traumatic for you.

Just finished bbq - my special sausage really  tasty ! Just caught up with the opening ceremony I thought it was brilliant - but need to know what the bronze teardrops are.

There is a hibiscus which is hardy and can live outside but mines the chinese one - I  keep it in conservatory. Poor old Mark - no gold for us then. Bbq warming up lovely evening. Off to prepare salad. Kate - have you pinched it out ?

Kate - you won't believe me but I think it's incense sticks . We let them burn in the pot (avoiding the plant! ) Maybe they remind it of home ! Got a nice bottle of something cold in fridge so won't be attending church . I agree with the feeding of children - with my lot anything green is deemed  as poison.

It's a bit like old english sausage but very spicy , yum , nice little butchers shop near where we live.

Look at the size of this,

 One of the biggest hibiscus flowers I've ever had.

Watered rain shadow pots , dead- headed and sorted out sweetpea escapees - now watching the equestrian events. Love horses ,  Uk 9th position hoping they do better in next round.

Having bbq tonight - not sharing special sausage but you are welcome to some piri-piri ribs.

Very therapeutic  watching these horses .
