Any idea what this is?

It reminds me of the yellow/white flowers that grow in spikes and self seed everywhere. I can't remember their name but they grow a bit like verbascum.  I suppose it could also be an Iris. Can't zoom in so its difficult to tell.

Still got some bulbs and bare root plants to plant and a bit more tidying up.  The lawn will still get mown until the weather turns colder.  Ive got to move some plants indoors and I have seeds to plant to overwinter in the greenhouse.  Oh and I havent aerated the lawn yet.  I don't expect to do much in December and January though.

Hi Folks,

Stacey sorry to hear you are so ill.  If determination has anything to do with it I'm sure you will be bouncing back.

KEF glad to see you back.

Lily hope your back continues to improve.  I'm feeling much better now.  Yesterday did quite a bit in the garden but today I think I'm going to take it easy.  Back on Nanna duty tomorrow for a couple of days so a lazy day is in order.

Evening all, Unexpected guests tonight Firstborn and family plus secondborn and partner.  Had a Thai takeaway, plenty of wine and now settled in front of a film with babies in bed.

Hope little one sleeps as she is in our room.

Nice to hear from you Bekkie.

I'm sure Monty will pass on our good wishes and perhaps give him a treat or two on our behalf.

I inherited a hydrangea when I moved in.  As you know I'm a bit of a novice and wondered how you tell the difference between mop heads and paniwotsits.

Hi Lily, I could send the contact details for my torturer, still aching today but getting a bit better.  I'm sure there will a member of her coven in your area.
