Thank you Joyce - I will!!  The primroses and violets should be out...

At last our constant drizzle has stopped - and the sun is out!  An afternoon in the garden is in order I think...

Joyce, it's the Isle of Lismore.  Very small, in Loch Linnhe.

Hi all 

Well done Hosta!  Hope "the boys" come up trumps.

Isn't Harlow Carr a bit far for you, Chicky?  Lovely place though.  We often go for our wedding anniversary, and there's always something to see.  Punkdoc - violet mecanopsis sounds fab...

Drizzle again today, but at least it's warming up.  The forecast suggests I might actually be able to do some gardening again soon 

Got to pay a flying visit to our Scottish cottage next week, because there's something wrong with the water supply.  It'll be cheaper than getting a plumber across from the mainland (assuming I can identify and repair the fault, that is )

Drat.  Got to go out in the rain to do shopping...

Now that's a real sign of Spring, Landlubber!

I believe it flowers in its 3rd year, so you'll need to be patient...

Mobow, I think you could be right with Smyrnium.    S.perfoliatum looks very like it.  What do you think, Nut?

Happy May Day to you too, Marion!

Hoping for better weather in May.  Drizzle & rain today...

Keen, if you find the name of the acid yellow plant (you could try the gardener, if there's one on duty when you visit) please let us know what it is.  It's bugging me!

Morning all, hi Pat!    Happy new month everyone!

"You must wake and call me early, call me early, Mother dear,

Tomorrow'll be the happiest time of all the glad New Year...

...For I'm to be Queen o'the May, Mother, I'm to be Queen o'the May!"

Will that do, Joyce?  Not a song, but recited by my grandmother (who lived in a time when well brought up girls had to learn huge chunks of poetry and recite them for relatives), by my father (loudly, trying to wake me & my sister up for school), by me (ditto for my children), and now, sometimes, by my son and daughter when they want to annoy their OH's.    (It's Tennyson, I believe.)

Rain or drizzle forecast here too...
