All this chat about knickers v thongs...

Tried thongs once - they were a good thing - reminded me to floss my teeth

PDoc - when one of our neighbours son's thought it OK to have an all night party (semi detached house) I put on some screaming opera in the bedroom adjoining his (windows open of course) at 8am and then went & leaned on the doorbell at about 8.30 to tell him to move the cars off our shared driveway.

Bl**dy coward sent one of his mates down to deal with me. Words were had with parents when they returned. They were less than impressed too.

Guess what ?

Yellow weather warning for rain here. Amber weather warning for rain nearby.

Actual weather - about 6 spots of rain - total.

Maybe later....

Any ideas please........

Possible ID for the shrub on your other thread SGL. 

Can anyone identify this plesse?

SGL - can I suggest you look at Cedrus - specifically Cedrus Deodara Waverly Ridge and Cedrus Deodara Pendula.

Lots of Google links seem to take you to pictures of trees but, if you keep looking, there are a few pics of smaller specimens.

I mentioned on your other thread that I had seem a similar shrub but a more yellow colour - I think this might be Waverly Ridge. Am going to try to post a Pinterest link now (wish me luck!) which shows one of these grown as a small standard. I thought the leaf form looked right....

If you're interested.

Morning all. Sounds as though there is a chance the garden will get watered later today
DOVE - could you get me a couple of crabs off the market please? Don't mind if they're not dressed - very therapeutic picking them while listening to The Archers.
CLARI - ouch! - that sounds painful. I think I would have found something heavy (cast iron pan perhaps) to throw at OH in response
LILY P - hope all goes well today. I'm sure it will be fine. Closed eyes, yoga breathing, visualise beautiful beach / mountain stream / favorite garden / whatever and go & 'sit' there for the duration. Large coffee & cake as a reward when it's all over. x
A little light gardening today and finish off our accounts. There's a huge stack of filing to do if anyone's volunteering - lemon drizzle cake afterwards as payment - any takers - hmmm - thought not. Best get on then.

HELLO FORKERS!
