    Robot, thank you for that image We would so love some of your lovely weather, can you blow some over to us please, we are desperate, pleeeeeese!!!

    Yes please do blow it this way.. really totally fed up with the rain now.. and not even getting GW fix... it is not good.

    some good thou.. the lavender seeds i planted have started shooting.. but the maltese cross and the violas..nothing.. not enough light level i think.

    in the garden the cupids darts is now toatlly flat..dunno if it will pick up.. my lavender dlowers are starting to droop to the ground also. and i have had 3 yellow aquilegas flowering non stop since start of may.. i keep dead heading they keep producing.. unusual for them.. but like a ray of sunshine out there at the moment.

    I'm blowing.........................

  • I've just discovered three random plants flowering. Can anyone identify? Should I nurture, or start frantically digging out..?




     Sorry for the crap picture here - the camera refused to focus on the flower..


     I can't find any of them in my wildflowers book, so am a bit puzzled... They may be remenants from gardeners past.

    On the subject of stuff flowering, my nasturtiums have burst out in the last couple of days

    First one I think is definitely speedwell.  Second one looks like a poppy coming but not sure and haven't a clue about the third. Would be interested to know though.  Some weeds (wild flowers) are really nice and I've a tufted vetch growing through my rosemary which is really pretty so I've left it. 

    I love nasturtiums.  Great to put the flowers in salads.  I remember being given seeds at school when I was a littl'un and growing them at home - many many years ago. 

  • Took these this morning not much going on in the garden yet.
