Brizza Do Dah

Posted: 18/04/2015 at 18:39

Panda, I have grown Briza Media from seed and it looks exactly like grass in the pot, not planting it out until it's a decent size as I know I'll just pull it up when I'm weeding.

ID Please

Never thought I would say it, especially in the middle of April, but my garden couldn't half do with some rain.

There is a well in my garden which is now incorporated in the conservatory with a glass lid, it looks good when lit up at night.  Also found what I think may have been an ice house.  Its under the terrace now. Most recent find was a piece of metal in the shape of a horses head.  No idea what it was.

Unpleasant adverts

I once bought tickets for a New York Niks match on line prior to a holiday there.  I'm not going into details about the porn that appeared on my 'Work' laptop following the purchase, other than to say it was more atheletic than the match.  I had to take it straight into work and let them deal with it.  I never quite lived it down.

That's what's so frustrating Susan,  It was a good size when I bought it and I got it from Ashwood's so I know it's good stock.  It was a pressie from Hubby and wasn't cheap and was in flower when I brought it home.

Although it's sunny here the wind is really cold.  Definitely fleece weather BL

Morning everyone, Lovely sunny day here. Not sure what I will be up to in the garden.  Think it will probably include weeding the front and checking for agastache which have still not shown not looking good is it.

The wisteria has decided it's not going to flower again, so I have to made a decision whether to try for a 6th year or admit defeat and find something lovely to replace it.   Did a search for the perfect plant for that particular spot, listing all the conditions etc and you know what they suggested. Yes you've got it A Wisteria.
