I like them more when they're in the garden. They always seem too top heavy indoors

Plum tree fungi

It's never a good sign for the tree but it's honey fungus that spreads around to other trees.

I'll keep an eye on them Wk. 

My planting is mostly bee and butterfly attractors. A lot of natives for the larva food source. I grow them to counterbalance all the plantings by those who want the butterflies but not the larvae

Anyone done any gardening today?

more saw and shred done. 

I'll split a few more snowdrop clumps this afternoon and dig up the sick looking hellebores

I've got some of those waiting to go out. Haven't grown them for years. I got them through the forum seed swap.

Dianthus barbatus Wk, aka Sweet Williams

I'd cut all the dead wood out and a few of the old but live ones back to base. If it's healthy it will grow more shoots from the base and you can remove the old ones a few at a time over the next year or two (or 3 or 4)

A light day, splitting some snowdrop clumps to extend the white carpet.  

Muttered at some hellebores that have got something wrong with them. Remove tomorrow I think. They've been there a very long time and in a bad patch of soil.

Another round of saws and shredder tomorrow as well

They're great if you've got the space and mine didn't fall over which tall plants usually do for me
