Two plants id please

2nd one looks very similar to my Darmera, which is also flowering now.

Just been for amble around the grounds [ slight exaggeration maybe ]

Snails everywhere, warm and damp weather has brought them out. Sorry to those who disagree, but they were either squashed [ and put out for our Thrushes ], or chucked in the stream.

Just back from a walk and pub lunch in Chatsworth with friends, £14.50 for a ploughmans, taking the p###s surely.

Time for an amble round the garden and then I feel a snooze coming on, lunch time drinking always tires me out.

Oh dear oh dear,,oh dear......

bear grass

I have never heard of Bear grass, but I do grow Black grass [ Ophiopogon ], which is a member of the Lilly family and not a grass at all.

I think that this thread started as a bit of light hearted banter, always a good idea. it now seems to be turning into a bit of a rant about politics and class.

For what it is worth, I have always had fairly left of centre politics, but still like the idea of our Royal family. I know that they bring a great deal of pleasure to many people and that seems a good thing in fairly desperate times.

Morning all.

Heavy rain woke me from drunken stupor. Good night, beef cheek with bone marrow and truffle mash, plus far too much wine.

Strange that OHs friends seem far more forgiving of my "issues", than my own "friends".

Boggy bed is now officially a pond, drought to flood in one night, I love our weather!

DD I hope you can sort out Shadow, as others have said he is young so can be trained.

Hosta, the gardens at Chatsworth can be lovely and the grounds are usually full of sculptures, We often walk along the river there, so only pay for car parking.
