What is this plant?

Watch out for Saw fly in the summer, they can decimate a plant very quickly. I wash the caterpillars off with water.

Hi all.

Back from a rare expedition into Sheffield. I go so rarely, I can barely find my way around.

Marital disharmony, as OH said she would phone when she had done her bits, and we would meet for coffee. Of course I did not have mobile turned on, although I did eventually realise.

Hopefully get a couple of hours outside, placing Dahlias where I think they will best be planted.

G'day all.

Just been hit with the bomb shell........ that I have to go shopping with OH, to buy essentials for holiday!

I am sure I said I liked BHs. Looking like a bit of an idiot now!

Caravaners!!!! they used to spoil most trips up the west coast of Scotland, ban them. [ apologies to any caravaners ]

Just finished a bottle of Prosecco in the summerhouse, very pleasant.

Have taken advice, and forwarded the PMs to Daniel. I was going to post them on here, but I thought with all the trouble that was caused, when I did that before, I had probably better not.

Just thinking, funny how I am looking forward to the BH. tomorrow, even though I am retired. What is that about then?

You are so right BL. I was wondering why I was seeing so much more in the photos, than on the television, and, then I realised, it was the ability to really study the view, and not have it move on to something else.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Evening all.

Just watched the rugby, come on England.

Before that, busy day in garden, assisted by OH. I like it when she helps, not only do we get more done, and she is happy to do the less "gardeny" bits, but it is nice to have constructive criticism about bits she does not like. Sometimes goes a bit far though!

Spicy meat balls for dinner, but a G@T in the garden first.

Have a good evening all.

Hi all.

Very busy in the garden, so not really looked in.

Hope your day at work goes well Hosta.

I am a little miffed, that a couple of people have sent PM's, blaming me for Verdun's absence, as I am not responsible. He will return when he is ready, and I am not going to be bullied by a couple of saddos.
