Gardeners who love their feline friends

 This cat stayed in our garden for several days until we could catch her and have her scanned and reunited with her owners. I'll take that she chose to stay in our garden as a compliment!

Plants IDs please!

 The lower two are things I've grown myself but not labelled!

 These photos are from last week, but I've had some bulbs start showing signs of life this week, and can start weeding the beds! Seems all the rain did them good!

I have it all over a rose bush at the moment! I didn't know it was a bug, had a nosey at it the other day and was pretty cute for a bug!

Hope someone messaged Mike telling him this. The internet isn't always a lovely place

Those dahlia's would look fantastic with my Petunias!

They are sadly characters of the past Hosta, as well as characters of comedy and amusement, and as far as I know TFL was with older ladies too. I'm condoning people being overweight, I am however condoning television producers that seem to only excuse a female presenter carrying extra tub once she hits a certain age. It's a shame because I'm sure there are many, many talented female presenters out there who don't get considered simply because they aren't slim or pretty enough... which is sad! And simply doesn't apply for men in television! Anyway, I think this is the wrong forum to air my feminist grievances

Nikki is on it for people like me who don't understand the majority of Chelsea, but who are enthusiastic, but niave. I for one am I glad there's a 'normal' person on it. As for people commenting on her attractiveness, does it really matter? The notion presenters need to be attractive to matter is frankly irritating at the very least. Especially when it comes to women. As soon as a young woman as fat and old as Tom Kerridge is on primetime telly, I'll always have a bee in my bonnet about it.

Went to my local garden centre as a pick me up and found some beautiful black velvet petunias, I picked them up because they reminded me of my black cat's silky ears!

Now I've brought them home to my very bright, pastel potted, mainly pink and yellow garden I don't really know how or where I'm going to put them! Not that I really mind, they are truly stunning!

Are there any other lovely black and dark petal plants? It must be the inner goth in me crying out!
