Do you know this weed?!

Look like Willow saplings to me.

What is this plant please

You can cut it virtually to the ground in Spring, and it will come back strongly.

Is gardening good for the soul?

There is an increasing amount of good scientific evidence, which suggests that gardening is very good for mental health and well being.

A combination of: fresh air, moderate exercise, the power of seeing things grow etc.

I can vouch personally for the help it is providing me, in coping with serious depression.

There has been talk of GPs being able to prescribe gardening therapy, although I am not sure quite how this would work.

For coffee and cake, I can pretend I can treat anything, and certainly talk convincing bull s##t.

ID please

That close up does look more like a Helianthus, now I am confused, nothing new there.

Thank you Dove.

Never sure how much you should sing about your achievements on a blog

Received many injuries, worst being a broken jaw, kept me quiet for a while.

ID please

The central disc makes it more like a Rudbeckia, rather than a Heliantus, IMO.

Grass ID please

Carex Evergold, grows in deep shade in my garden, and really lights up the area.

Really pleased about the hockey, I played for Britain, and missed the 84 Olympics due to injury, sorry if that sounds a bit arrogant, but it is something I am still rather proud of.

One of the current mens squad, is the son of a guy I played with.

The game has really progressed since my day.

Hi all.

Serious storm yesterday evening, the garden looks like it has been hit by a tornado, which is sad, it was full of colour, most of which is on the floor now.

Still raining, so may start clearing out the greenhouse.

Have a good day.
