Problem plant

They are indeed Cranesbills. Keep the ones you want and either dig out or weed killer the others.

Hiya Dove.

As of this morning just 1 male duck. I think he is the spurned male and the other 2 are probably nesting somewhere else, A ducks love life does seem very complicated though.

Morning all.

Sunny but cold here.

Amusing myself in garden today, trying to pretend I am Christopher Lloyd.

OH has a job interview today, would be great if she gets it, more money for me to spend.

Stubborn Weed

I am sure it is a Geranium but not sure which. Geranium do not grow from bulbs though.

Why do you want to get rid of it?

Giant Lupin Aphid

Just pot luck I am afraid. Some years I get them on some plants but not on others, some years none at all. Does not seem related to where the plants are located.

Jimmy I suppose I just wanted to know if what I saw was a real type of bee, if that makes sense.

Anyone here know anything about hairy legged Bumble bees? I have just seen 2 collecting nectar from a Pulmonaria and I have not seen anything like them before.

I've had a bonfire. Not very environmentally friendly I know, but had piles and piles of rubbish and there is something so satisfying about a good fire, brings out my inner caveman.

Labelled all the plants I am taking to BIL, so he can start a garden. Quite nice to think that most of his plants will be clones of mine.

Poor Soil ?

A series of terraces would be a good way to nullify the slope and help to retain soil.

Morning all.

Grey but warm here.

Long list of garden jobs to do today, highly unlikely I will stick to it though. Much more likely that I will do more "artistic" arranging of plants.

Never grown wisteria, but surely worth it for those few weeks of beauty.
