bear grass

I have never heard of Bear grass, but I do grow Black grass [ Ophiopogon ], which is a member of the Lilly family and not a grass at all.

I think that this thread started as a bit of light hearted banter, always a good idea. it now seems to be turning into a bit of a rant about politics and class.

For what it is worth, I have always had fairly left of centre politics, but still like the idea of our Royal family. I know that they bring a great deal of pleasure to many people and that seems a good thing in fairly desperate times.

Morning all.

Heavy rain woke me from drunken stupor. Good night, beef cheek with bone marrow and truffle mash, plus far too much wine.

Strange that OHs friends seem far more forgiving of my "issues", than my own "friends".

Boggy bed is now officially a pond, drought to flood in one night, I love our weather!

DD I hope you can sort out Shadow, as others have said he is young so can be trained.

Hosta, the gardens at Chatsworth can be lovely and the grounds are usually full of sculptures, We often walk along the river there, so only pay for car parking.

Morning all.

Grey and cold here.

OH gone for run, so I am drinking coffee and stuffing my face with crumpet [ although I call them pikelets ]

Off to wander round and make another list, that won't be completed.

Dinner out tonight at 1 of Sheffield's offal and odd cuts restaurants. Just had a horrible feeling that 1 of our friends is a bit squeamish about such things!

Have a lovely day, whatever you are doing.

Is it just me, or does anyone else hate mowing the lawn.

Just spent 2.5 hours of my life following the lawn mower round, looking at all the other jobs that needed doing and that I would much rather do.

The simple answer is no. Wisterias need sunshine.

You should be able to see the remains of last years stems. These need to be pointing up. If they are not, dig them up and plant again.
