Maybe a poor clone Clare if fragrance is weak.  

All daphnes though are fickle.....they suddenly die for no apparent reason, thrive in some gardens but suffer in others.  I cannot grow them well but my neighbour grows them beautifully. my soil is richer and my position more protected so???

Cut grass, planted hosta delivery and thoroughly enjoyed the sunshine.  The forecast rain and strong winds didn't happen today here anyway.  My face is hot from the sun

Lovely, beautiful, sunny day.  Here in the Bay there is just a moderate breeze but sun is strong

Was windy but didn't hear too much.  Calm, warm, sunny and all the birds singing everywhere here.  And a Verdun could be heard whistling a delightful tune! 

a good turn needs to be considered......

No, dont like adders at all Pam.  You're right though, they are out now . Can't come into my garden as its walled but I need to be careful now on the towans with my dog.
