Ok where is everyone tonight?

Been to my first garden club meeting, the one that didn't take place when I went last time! Bit of a disaster. Plants for sale , spotted a geum  asked what colour - oh ive no idea love  the lady has a business selling them. Overheard someone ask what an unlabelled plant was - oh its a shrub, it has flowers.   Beam me up Scottie! Its a coreopsis ( well probably not but it looked like it to me). Lovely ladies n gents though. and cake. going again? doubt it.

Another seed pod to identify

This is what Wikipedia says;

The Kentucky Coffeetree, Gymnocladus dioicus,2] is a tree in the subfamily Caesalpinioideae of the pea family Fabaceae, native to the midwest of North America. The seed may be roasted and used as a substitute for coffee beans; however, unroasted pods and seeds are toxic. The wood from the tree is used by cabinetmakers and carpenters.

From 1976 to 1994 the Kentucky coffeetree was the state tree of Kentucky, after which the tulip poplar was returned to that designation.


***......As we know it just isn't possible to SUBSTITUTE coffee so think it will be closer to Fried chicken myself! ***
