3 and 4 are Allium sphaerocephalon.

What is this?

Looks like Ragged Robin [ Lychnis flos coculi ]

Do you know this plant please?

Salvia verticalata.

Morning all.

Unfortunately, relationship with NDN has escalated again, and has now reached the point where I am genuinely concerned for my sanity, and possibly OHs well being.

Today I am feeling completely destroyed, and am going to try to get an urgent appointment with my hospital consultant.

I hope you understand that I am unlikely to be posting in the near future.

I wish you all well, thank you for the help you have previously given, and good gardening.

Oh yes Lantana.

One night an elephant came very close to our tent, which was seriously scary, but afterwards we felt that something truly amazing had happened, and were really excited.

Things like that happen fairly frequently in tented camps, but it is very rare for anyone to be harmed.

Hearing a lion roar in the middle of the night, really does send shivers down the spine.

Evening all.

Been for my driver re education course today, actually quite interesting, although whether it will change my habits, who knows!

Sadly had a bit of a panic attack, on Sunday evening, so OH had to forgo a days pay to take me, so a very expensive experience.

Thanks for asking, but no more neighbour trouble, I think the voyeurism issue will not be pursued, so just need to await the next unpleasantness.

Have a good evening

Thank you so much for the kind comments.

We were indeed very lucky. It was our second safari, the first being to S. Africa. Both were wonderful, but Botswana is a truly remarkable place, would go again and again, if I could.

Evening all.

Just watched The Revenant, Di Caprio was fantastic.

Chicky and Topbird, you have reassured me.

I have never been so upset about politics in my life, and I have always been fairly committed.

I just do not understand my fellow humans sometimes.

Thanks girls.

Some of us men, have been through it too!

Luckily, I seem to end up, finding the one woman who did understand me!
