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.

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.

I am sure it is a Geranium but not sure which. Geranium do not grow from bulbs though.

Why do you want to get rid of it?

Just pot luck I am afraid. Some years I get them on some plants but not on others, some years none at all. Does not seem related to where the plants are located.

Jimmy I suppose I just wanted to know if what I saw was a real type of bee, if that makes sense.

Anyone here know anything about hairy legged Bumble bees? I have just seen 2 collecting nectar from a Pulmonaria and I have not seen anything like them before.

I've had a bonfire. Not very environmentally friendly I know, but had piles and piles of rubbish and there is something so satisfying about a good fire, brings out my inner caveman.

Labelled all the plants I am taking to BIL, so he can start a garden. Quite nice to think that most of his plants will be clones of mine.
