Yes, it is Cow Parsley. I like it in the right places, but it seeds everywhere and, you need to remove at the seedling stage, as it has a tap root.

The first one I've seen this year - 2014

I think I might have heard a Blackcap this morning. However i am tone deaf, as those who follow the music thread will probably agree, so who knows?

I still find myself thinking why is Monty calling my name, every time he calls Nigel, as that is what I am really called!

I'm scared!

Even after 20 years of gardening, I still start spring thinking that seeds wont germinate, that all my perennials will fall off their perch and that shrubs will develop unspecified but deadly diseases.

Most of these things dont happen, but one of the wonderful things about gardening is that death does not have to be a disaster, look upon it as a new planting opportunity.

Plants want to grow, yours will and you will love your garden, it is pre-ordained.

Morning all, very cold in Sheffield today, or perhaps I am just being nesh.

Hope everyones plans for today work out. We have friends coming over, so I have got to tidy up all my rubbish which, apparently is cluttering up the entire house.

This is another idea that shows the value of gardening to people that have dissabilities of some sort, and is to be much applauded. People of Sunderland get down there now.

Every year we have the same discussion, MD, good or bad; Nigel charming or an unnecessary distraction.

The only thing we all agree on is that we should have more programmes on gardening. I suspect that these programmes cost more to make than cookery programmes, and, certainly get lower viewing figurs so it jusy aint going to happen.

My own personal opinion is that MD. is a really interesting man, who speaks and writes beautifully [ read his Ivington diaries ] and who cares passionately about gardening. You may not agree with me, but then of course you would be wrong!

Thanks Berghill, I am sure I bought them as flexuosa, but you obviously know your Corydalis. I shall look for some pictures.

SGL., picture 5 is Corydalis flexulosa. It likes to grow in shade, there is a beautiful sky blue variety but, unfortunately my is a muddy pink, but it does have beautiful ferny foliage. I started off with a couple of tubers/rhizomes and, they have now spread to form a large colony.

sorry should read flexuosa
