I think it may be a creeping cinquefoil or tormentil, but they seem to have 4 not 5 petals....I've just dug it out:-(

28 May, 2012

28 May, 2012

28 May, 2012

Isn't it hot? bit muggy tonight:-)

28 May, 2012

 

there are a few clouds on the western horizon here!!

it was incredibly hot today but i went to Great Witley, it was lovely when they turned the fountain on ~ a few of the droplets got carried in the breeze and people were walking underneath to cool off!!

28 May, 2012

 

You should have had a paddle...anyway stop gallivanting all over the place...Where's Great Witley? :-)

the house is a ruin [sadly] but they have restored the fountain which is amazing, there are woodland gardens, a lake and a baroque church. oh and of course a tea shop

I'll have a look later. OH and I took a taxi to local 'Country Gardens' garden centre on Thursday. n Hoped to find something nice to buy and they had a 2 for one offer on afternoon tea. Finger sandwiches, scone (clotted cream, butter, jam) and fancy cake each with pot of tea. Bought nothing and if I had made the scone, it would have gone in the bin...I ate it though. The little fancy cakes were Mr Kipling...didn't eat them. The sandwiches were nice. I took a pic of them to show you, then thought people would think me mad...ME! :-)

i havent seen the picture??? i dont see why people should know i am mad and not you!!!

did you tell them what you thought of their cream tea???

how very disappointing

28 May, 2012

 

No, they were very nice people...I did take the first scone back as it was doughy and uncooked inside. I only did that because the woman on the next table asked if mine was uncooked like hers and she took hers back...so I did too...brave! I didn't put the pic on , but if you want me to I will:-)

29 May, 2012

 

I will leave it up to you!

Being nice people helps but what a shame so many things were disappointing.

29 May, 2012

 

o.k. girls. if this is not a weed I will have some please to put in the rockery, have to dash, going to B&Q. xxx

29 May, 2012

 

its around 18" wide and a tiny flower, its either a weed or a wild flower, its not something i would choose for a rockery maybe but i will certainly send you one if you would like it.

29 May, 2012

 

Yorkie, I thought it was a geum...kept waiting for it to flower:-(

29 May, 2012

 

send me one please Sticki, if you don't mind, the rockery is huge so it will be nice to cover some of the shingle on there,

29 May, 2012

 

Yorkie...it's an ugly weed!:-)

29 May, 2012

 

i will send you one but like BA says its not that great, it wont cover the shingle really cos the stems are so far apart.

29 May, 2012

 

AND ITS UGLY!!!! :-)

29 May, 2012

 

if it really is a weed then I don't want it, anything you two got that is good for a rockery, that's what friends are for, I had a lovely bulb sent this morning by my third secret admirere, how do you spell that word,!!!

29 May, 2012

 

i will have a look round for you.

29 May, 2012

 

Oh thank you Sticki,

29 May, 2012

29 May, 2012

30 May, 2012

30 May, 2012

30 May, 2012

30 May, 2012

30 May, 2012

 

Have you got a bus pass Ba, we could visit by bus if you have a couple of days spare.

2 Jun, 2012

 

thats a good Idea Stroller

3 Jun, 2012

 

Let's go further...a coachload of Goyers....Yorkie won't mind...we can pitch our tents in her garden...she's a good cook, so food will be no problem...and I want to see Ralphs legs. What a generous Goyer our Yorkie is...I'm proud to call her friend. No men allowed though, you can't trust her. Who's game?:-)

3 Jun, 2012

 

a coachload of GOYERS won't bother me, just bring a glass everyone, that's a bit cheeky BA no men allowed, surely I am entitled to a bit of fun also, after all you'll be ogling my OH legs,

5 Jun, 2012

 

No Yorkie...you've had enough...you know it's bad for you:-)

5 Jun, 2012
