Not yet KEF but could be any day now.  First I thought I was just fat but doc said no 

Why doesn't my skimmia have any berries?

Hey, autumnglory, give it a chance. skimmias take their time, in my experience, both to settle in and to flower.  Besides, those "little buds" still have time yet. 

Even self fertile plants benefit from another male planted nearby. got room for another male?  Lots of new varieties now

You will be ok Hosta.  You gotta be we need you here 

last time I saw the doc I asked him if he was ok.....corny but true.  Couldn't wait to leave .   And when was the last time any of you saw a hand wash facility at doc's?  Wanna catch a bug?  Go to your local surgery. 

Windy but warm and sun is out.   Planted out a couple of large ...named..lupins.  Much lighter too this morning for some reason.
