Hi all.

Back from a few days in St. Andrews, for the annual gathering of my OHs family [ 22 of us in all ]

gorgeous weather, so my collection of fleeces and Gortex was not needed.

Spent a few hours in my BILs new garden, he has not gardened before, but is very keen. I was able to point out what he already had, give him a few planting suggestions, plus gave him a lot of plants that I had spare.

Lovely to hear your good news fidget and am pleased the service for your Dad went well Dove.

Hope everyone is well, I am off for a lie down having drunk far too much in the last few days.

They like lots of moisture, sometimes they are actually grown as pond plants. Not all species are reliably hardy, so may need to be brought in to a frost free location over winter.

Hi Claire, it's Trillium angustipetalum, I think.

Well that was a mistake. Went up to the GC, to get some Iris chrysographies for the boggy bed, which they had ordered for me and the whole of Sheffield seemed to be in there. It was like the supermarket, with trollies blocking al the aisles.

Not pleasant, I now remember why I buy most stuff on line.

Grows anywhere, even deep shade. Pretty flowers and easy to remove if it spreads too far.

Problem plant

They are indeed Cranesbills. Keep the ones you want and either dig out or weed killer the others.

Hiya Dove.

As of this morning just 1 male duck. I think he is the spurned male and the other 2 are probably nesting somewhere else, A ducks love life does seem very complicated though.

Morning all.

Sunny but cold here.

Amusing myself in garden today, trying to pretend I am Christopher Lloyd.

OH has a job interview today, would be great if she gets it, more money for me to spend.
