A bit of mid-day shade is good, because it sometimes allows the flowers to last more than 1 day.

I am sure you know this but it is too early to be planting them outside, as they are very cold sensitive. Even when they are inside being next to a cold window at night can damage the foliage. I dont plant them out till June.

Morning all. Seems to be a lot of sad news on here this morning, my sympathy to all concerned.

Have managed to plant out some of my Autumn sown seeds this morning, my Scabious Chile Black has made far more substantial plants than, when I Spring sow it.

Mandarin ducks have been more daring today, coming out of pond and sitting on the lawn.

Sentimental Plants

Lycnis coronaria. It was the first plant I grew from seed, which came from my FILs garden. That was over 20 years ago, but I still grow the seeds every few years to replace those that have died.

My FIL helped to get me interested in gardening when I got married and bought our current house, which had a lot of garden that had not been tended for many years. I grow many plants that were seeds, cuttings or divisions from plants in his garden, that he showed me how to take.

I sometimes wonder what he would make of what I have turned the garden into and hope that he would approve.

Yes easy to look after and you can split them fairly frequently to make new plants for free.

Not ignorant at all, we all have to start somewhere. It looks like a Geum to me.

Morning all.

Ground here still saturated after Mondays rain, so stuff will have to stay in greenhouse longer, which means other stuff will have to stay on window sills a bit longer, and that means no more seed sowing, and OH will complain about the mess. It is not easy being a gardener.

Heron on the pond this morning as I squelched round, should have worn wellies, as now got cold wet tootsies.

Hope all are well, and that the workers stay calm and happy.

Hope the car is not too expensive Dove, otherwise those shoes will have to go on ebay. I hope OH does not read this otherwise she will be wanting to do her Imelda bit.

Verdun I love your idea of coordinating the washing with your plants.
