Panda, I love that purple / grey combination, very moody.

ID Please

I agree with Verbascum. It also looks like one of the big yellow ones, which means it is probably biennial, and so it will die following flowering

Hi Rosemummy. Yes that first picture is a Cistus.

Fg. I went out to have another look at my I. crysographes, and it looks different to yours, so I am not sure what yours is.

Fg. Yes the Canna is unusual. Looking up in boks it seems that the Cannas originally brought back from India were like this, rather than the much larger flowers that most of the ones we grow now have. It also has fairly small leaves.

I could swear that it looks nothing like the plant from which I stole the seed.

Evening all. Very lazy day, sat in a chair in the garden, then moved to another chair and then to a different chair. These moves were repeated several times to get the best views.

Will have to be a takeaway tonight, I am far to stressed to cook.

Have a lovely evening.

BL, enjoy your hols.

Wintersong, I am with you all the way, we get terrible service and are supposed to be grateful. In my working life, the most insignificant errors were investigated ad nauseam, wasting time and money and making doctors feel more stressed. However trying to complain about the service I now receive for almost everything is a non starter. [ rant over ]

 Fg. this is the Canna we were talking about.





















Horsetail problems

Posted: 13/06/2014 at 09:57

Horse tail is one of the oldest plants on the planet, apparently it was around in the time of the dinosaurs. Its roots go down as much as 10 metres, and to make matters worse it has a silicom exoskeleton, which makes difficult to apply weedkiller.

I think there are 2 stratagies; 1. bruise stems and apply weedkiller, 2. after a few weeks start to pull up whatever reappears.

Morning all, lovely here again. Done the supermarket, lovely to have the roof off the car at 6.30.

Another lazy day for me, cant work in the heat, just look and cogitate,

As some folks on here know, I tend to be rather quick to rise to the bait, so if I can resist replying to unpleasant trouble makers, you all can.

best wishes to the workers, a grand weekend to look forward to.

Morning all, going to be a scorcher here, so avert your eyes ladies, I think I may have to put some shorts on. Usually turns into a bit of a disaster as I get bitten and stung.

Congratulations to your niece Verdun, well done Panda for surviving a whole day at work.

Have a lovely day all.
