We try to visit a few each year, as there are many within 10 miles, and one I can even walk to.

lupin plant not doing well

Posted: 04/06/2017 at 00:03

Sorry but I totally disagree.

Lupins like good moist soil. I have even managed to get them to do well in my bog garden.

Water well, decent soil, but I agree, not in a pot.

Hi all.

Managed to grab a few minutes on OH's laptop.

Desk Top now at computer shop, hope it is fixable.

Watched our grey wagtails going in and out of the nest all day, hopefully fledged wagtails will appear at some point.

I love Monty too.

Sadly Japanese holiday is now officially cancelled and I have lost the deposit. Looks like I shall be planning another trip, where shall we go?

Hi all.

Still got major computer issues, but thought I would pop in.

Sorry Hosta, but I totally disagree.

Hi all.

Glad we are live again.

Lovely discovery this morning. I was up a ladder trying to remove some C. alpine, that had wrapped round the TV dish, when I discovered a Grey Wagtail nest. I knew they were nesting nearby, as I see them everyday in the mud at the edge of the pond.

Now to mow the lawns, not quite a Hosta job, but takes a good 2 hours and I don't really enjoy it.

Hope you are keeping occupied Dove and are not in too much pain.

What is this Iris?

Looks like Iris foetidissimus.

If so should have berries in the Autumn.

Is this a Marigold?
