1 is a Penisetum, although not sure which species.

5,6 agree

4 looks like lots of things, would need flowers to be sure. I am thinking maybe a Salvia, it looks quite Sage like.

You are of course right Dove. I have no complaints on that front!

Just to be contrary [ I usually am ], I like them for bulbs, but would not go near them for live [ not always in their case ] plants.

Poldark. More objectification of the male body, by you ladies [ ? you too Hosta ] !!

What is this plant, please?

remember that if you want to grow it, it is a half hardy annual, so plants should not go outside until after the last frost [ IMO, probably not till late June, as it is very tender ] It will die after the first frosts of Autumn.

You don't know how tempted I am Bushman.

No security cameras, unfortunately, too large an area to cover.

Always thrilled to think of others enjoying the great pleasures in Scotland's wilderness. Am grateful that I have spent so much time up there, and had the opportunity to do some of the hills.

Also very lucky to have found a Scottish lassie, who enjoys going there as often as I do, even if it is more likely to be a beach walk, rather than a mountain.

Off to Gairloch in September, so lots to look forward to.

Keep posting the pictures, perhaps I could give you a list of hills I particularly want to see again!

Fab pictures fairy.

Always wanted to do the Ring of Steall, but never did.

It is lovely to vicariously live the hills again, via your photos.

Hi all.

magnificent Mo, wonderful relay girls.

Had just got to sleep after the excitement, and was woken by the sound of breaking glass and screaming. Got up, thinking the worst, and it was NDN's stepson smashing the windows of their house, sorry to say I was not only relieved, but rather pleased that someone else dislikes him too!

Now I am slightly worried, firstly in case he does it to our house, and secondly, it is not the first time we have heard him having screaming fits, should I be doing something?

Just woken up, and one of the Yew trees had 5 Redwings, eating the berries. I am sure it is at least a month earlier than usual. What does it mean?

Have a good day everyone.
