Lily that sounds like a good day planned.

Happy birthday for Dove's daughter

I'm sure MrsGarden's day at work will be okay, she's in plant mood so won't notice work

Good morning, still misty here.

Very interesting, wise and moving posts last night and this morning. 

Good to see Bill back with us, and posting a great picture.

Verdun thinking about you & your Mum.

Lily, you are off work today, good.  Panda if you are going today  pretend I'm in your handbag, might be very heavy, but if someone upsets you threaten to open the bag, I can be a Tiger when roused 

Hi Dove & MrsGarden and whoever sneaks in whilst I'm typing this.

Magnolia never flowers

Maybe Fidget can advise better than me but I think it's too near the fence for it's shallow roots to grow and maybe impoverished if conifers were there before. Maybe it was also disturbed when the conifers came out. Give it plenty of "food" as Fidget does with hers. I'd be temped to move some of the plants from the base of it.

Plant IDs Please

I'm off to bed now, been poor at reading my book, Lee Child, The Affair. Only the latest Reacher book after this one and I've read the lot.

Drizzling now so hopefully with change of wind direction and some rain we might see something tomorrow other than mist.


Verdun, thinking about you & your Mum.

Hope all enjoy their evening even if the day has been bad.

4. I agree a spirea, tends to look a bit mildewy later into summer ? Mine does.

3. I know it can't be but looks like parsnip leaves to me

Lily, taller  cos OH chucked wet farm yard manure on my head..accidentally. Glad work wasn't quite as bad, lets hope Panda had a bit better day as well.

This one is just to make KEF jealous, and to stay that they are now growing strongly!

Pdoc I'm green. When did you say you were "out for the day"  Mine is as dead as a dodo.

Lovely pictures everyone, thanks for sharing

See what you mean Rory, the Magnolia was far less mature. Hope you don't have to remove it.
