  • Take care, the wild version of Achillea can be a bit of a thug. Spreads by runners and seed, often reverting to the rather dirty white of the original.
    There are lots of cultivars of many different colours available now.Reds, yellows, oranges, pinks, even terracotta.

    Very cold, windy and raining. Need the rain, but it does make it hard to get motivated to go and do some gardening, even in the greenhouse. All the sheep on my walk this morning were sitting under the trees out of the weather. Don’t blame them either.
    Have fun folks.

    Lifting a bag of bark mulch yesterday, managed to tweak a muscle in my back. Not badly but enough to stop me doing any more gardening for a few days. Good job it is raining and cooler. I can wear my back support.
    Hope the weather is doing what you all want for you.

    • How frustrating Eric … you have my sympathies for what they are worth … take care of yourself and stay safe :good: :rose: :rose:

              I can be depressed no matter what nice things are going on. Chemical imbalance in the brain.
                • Oh Eric, I am sorry to hear that, is there anything they can do to help?
                  • You clearly deal with it well Eric … stay safe and love that Freckles :good: :rose:

                    Only bright spot has been the juvenile robin which has been getting within inches of me as I was making a new path. Even stood on my shoe at one point.
                      • You cannot possibly be depressed if a young robin stands on your shoe Eric, that is too magical. :cool:

                                Too hot Too dry. Too tired. Too depressed.

                                              At the top of the lane where I walk most mornings as I came round the bend a wren flew across the road and perched in a tree. I stopped to watch. It fluffed up its feathers and began to sing. For such a small bird it produces a remarkably loud noise. The world seemed to stand…[Read more]

                                              Sunny and the wind has dropped. The lane this morning was crowded with people all wanting to discuss the weather.
                                              Got the estimate for the fence. Within budget so we have told them to go ahead.

                                              Still blowing so much that we did not go for our evening stroll.

                                              Blown a hooly a ll day here again, so very little gardening done apart from a bit of watering.

                                              No gardening out there for the moment, it is so windy it is hard to stand up out there. We did have heavy rain in the night, but this wind has dried it up.

                                              Not a single seed has germinated from my second sowing of every thing which failed the first time. Very annoying. So, no leeks for us this year.

                                              • only half of my runner beans germinated, I tipped the soil out removed rotted bean and put the same compost back in same pots in same tray.?? Might not be correct, but they have all come through this morning. So the only difference is the very low temperatures over night and higher in the day time. Otherwise same treatment. Its been a funny year…[Read more]

                                              No thank you. We found it was far too robust for us.

                                              It is a Lily relative by the way. I did have one which produced the most odd coloured bluish/green berries. Don’t think I brought it with us when we moved though.

                                              It is so long since I did it I cannot remember what I did. I do remember that only about a third of them come up black, the rest were just standard green. :good:
                                              I think I squashed the berries and removed the seeds and sowed them straight away.

                                              Only managed to remove one stump today, but it was a big awkward one with mahoosive roots. Fortunately the base of the tree was beginning to rot so the ones going straight down snapped easily once we got it so that we could push it over. Removed all the branches from the next stump, so tomorrow we should be able to get it out. There is an awful…[Read more]
