Hi all.

magnificent Mo, wonderful relay girls.

Had just got to sleep after the excitement, and was woken by the sound of breaking glass and screaming. Got up, thinking the worst, and it was NDN's stepson smashing the windows of their house, sorry to say I was not only relieved, but rather pleased that someone else dislikes him too!

Now I am slightly worried, firstly in case he does it to our house, and secondly, it is not the first time we have heard him having screaming fits, should I be doing something?

Just woken up, and one of the Yew trees had 5 Redwings, eating the berries. I am sure it is at least a month earlier than usual. What does it mean?

Have a good day everyone.

Come on Mo, I am ready, as I can't sleep.

Do you know this weed?!

Look like Willow saplings to me.

What is this plant please

You can cut it virtually to the ground in Spring, and it will come back strongly.

Is gardening good for the soul?

There is an increasing amount of good scientific evidence, which suggests that gardening is very good for mental health and well being.

A combination of: fresh air, moderate exercise, the power of seeing things grow etc.

I can vouch personally for the help it is providing me, in coping with serious depression.

There has been talk of GPs being able to prescribe gardening therapy, although I am not sure quite how this would work.

For coffee and cake, I can pretend I can treat anything, and certainly talk convincing bull s##t.

That close up does look more like a Helianthus, now I am confused, nothing new there.

Thank you Dove.

Never sure how much you should sing about your achievements on a blog

Received many injuries, worst being a broken jaw, kept me quiet for a while.

ID please

The central disc makes it more like a Rudbeckia, rather than a Heliantus, IMO.

Grass ID please

Carex Evergold, grows in deep shade in my garden, and really lights up the area.
