IMO, a little bit of botanical knowledge, is very helpful in becoming a better gardener.

Hi all.

I am here LP, or maybe I am not, certainly feeling a bit disorientated. Something to do with OH getting up at silly o'clock to catch her train.

Finally stopped raining, but garden looking very bedraggled. A little bit of trussing up maybe called for.

Hope airport trip is not too distressing Chicky.

Sedums are no longer called Sedums, but are now called Hylotelephiums.

That will make life easier then.

Hi all.

Very wet here, so another lazy day.

Please don't talk about winter yet, I am hoping for at least 3 more months of summer. Will need to start planning some winter sun.

NDNs seem to have blocked my car in, so need to go round for a quiet chat. It will probably end up not being that quiet.

Beauty of Livermore, is IME a proper red. It also seems to come true from seed.

Hi all.

Gardening clothes on, lovely and sunny, but that was 10 minutes ago, now it is hoeing down.

Glad to hear the good news DD, don't forget to sit down occasionally.

Hope Joyce is coping as much as is possible.

Enjoy your trip forkers.

There are a few different varieties, some with really nicely variegated leaves.

They are all indestructible.

What plant other than Ivy to cover up unsightly lower-middle class concrete bird bath with vulgar inscription on it?

Of course my pond with floating duck house, does have a certain upper class cachet.

[ Part of that statement is a lie. ]
