fennel tastes like chewing gum

Just a minor point, but do you think it was wise to eat something, when you weren't entirely sure what it was?

Sorry Dove.

I am terribly forgetful, considering I am only 27.

It all looks fantastic.

Your perseverance, optimism and sheer hard work, are a lesson to us all.

I am genuinely thrilled for you.

Hi all.

Hoeing it down here and not very warm, might have to do some studying today.

Sadly, however you grow them, I find Skimmia tend to look a bit yellow.

Identify this plant please

Much maligned, but beautiful in the right place.

As Dove says, rain drops on the leaves, look like little spheres of Mercury.

I do not like the sound of " natural purity of englishness " and as with people it probably does not exist.

Can you identify this climber?

Need to see some leaves too.

Flower head looks like Filipendula, aka Meadowsweet.

You need to leave them until a gentle shake causes the seeds to drop.

Tie a paper bag over the seed head and the seeds will drop into it when ripe.
