i don't think the leaves on 2 are Salvia patens leaves but that's one of the few salvias I grow so don't recognise this one.


I had trouble with the linaria, I always have a problem with flowers cut and lying down

The helpful herpetologist says:

Epic ponds Nutcutlet!! If only I had the space for ponds like that...


See original post


space we have hh

we chose space over functional house when we came here. Rotten cedar shingled roof leaked like a sieve, buckets everywhere. Rats and mice in the roof, bees and honeycomb round 2 dormer windows, dead and dying bees all over. Non functioning septic tank, leaking plumbing, windows falling out, no heating, no insulation, just cedar cladding and a layer of soft board, heaps of dumped rubbish but TWO ACRES, easy choice 

Any Idea what this plant is?

the geranium, centre, leaning over spider plant, looks like one that will become too large for its neighbours. I'd remove that and put it in the garden but it's OK for the rest of the summer. and just below and to the left, between geranium and persicaria. That's a willowherb, a weed, Get that out as well. The spider plant wouldn't survive a hard winter but lots of people put them out in summer.

Saffron crocus

I lived in Saffron Walden for some years. I couldn't grow it. I've tried several times, then and now. I had 3 flowers once and never seen again. 

Any Idea what this plant is?

it won't get tall but roots down as it moves sideways. Does very well spreading over rock or paving. Just pull up and cut off anything that's exceeded its space any time.
