Thats a good question Fg., being a nicked seed I did not have a name. I will post a picture once it is open, but it has small flowers which makes me suspect it is related to the Indian varieties, which I think were the first introduced to this country.

As always KEF i shall take your advice, then blame you if I am not sober.

Raining now, but it has been a lovely day, hot hot hot.

Now have nearly all my tender plants outside, except for a few Dahlias which are rather short, My seed raised Bishops Children are about to flower, not bad as sown in February. I wonder what colours they will be?

Morning Glories are in large pots, I find they get savaged by the molluscs if I put them in the ground.

I also have a Canna about to flower, it is grown from seed I nicked from a plant in a garden in Devon and it always seems to flower well before all the others.

Managed to resist a beer at lunch, but enjoyed the cake Dove.

Off to cook tea and will open some vino when OH gets home.

Have a good evening everyone.

have just watched a Goldcrest feeding 2 presumably just fledged chicks, on a branch of a Yew tree.

Acer's -need to get conditions perfect

Not an expert, but i do grow a few Acers. they need: semi-shade, not exposed to cold winds, and a slightly acid, woodsy soil [ leaf mould, ericaceous compost and some John innes No. 3 ]. Dont let them dry out, but dont drown them. Given that lot, they should thrive and act as a constant reminder of your dad.

Very hot out there today, have had to come in for a cool drink; too early for a beer I suppose.

Some cake would be very nice to have with my lunch.
