Garden plant names keep changing, even quite ordinary ones. My mother was furious when they changed Montbretia to Crocosmia.
Thank you, Buzzy, for the alternative names for Herb Bennett - much nicer ...

Every time I log in I get asked for my password, even though I tick "remember me".
One of these days I'm going to lose the sticky with my password on it and have to start the whole rigmarole again.

Isn't Herb Bennet a Geum? (small yellow flowers but leaves definitely geum-y) I have got masses of them, mostly in the patches of dead leaves, etc under beech trees, and also coming up on earthy paths ...

They've got here! Or at least made a pit stop at 9 pm last night! A pair!
But I haven't seen them so far today.
It's a start! Now for the cuckoo!

Opened the door to let the dog out at 7 30 am and a pair of siskins were as surprised as I was! They were aiming for the peanuts. I think they are only the third pair I've seen here in 10 years! Are t ...

Still no swallows, chiffchaffs or redstarts - but pairs of kites, buzzards and ravens bombing round every morning. Next door (1/4 mile away,) have 2 swallows. I still live in hopes!

Every time I log on, I have to put my user name and password in, even though I tick the box about "remember me".
Noting the Gytha Girl thread, I tried starting from "forum". Still doesn't work.

I've seen 2 swallows on a friend's farm, much nearer sea level, but nothing here yet, definitely late. And has anybody heard a chiffchaff - or is my deafness for real?

I have sheds full of accumulated "stuff" that I need to clear. I used to take stuff to the tip when I was younger, fitter and had a larger van (no commercial lettering on it, and no trailer, twin-axle ...

Can't find a heading to put this under, and the hydrangea is growing here.
How do I dry them for winter arrangements? In water? Out of water? Hanging upside down in a shed? Leave them on the bush?

I have a friend who used to work at a printers, and she provided me with much smaller pallets than your average back-of-a-lorry type. Much lighter to handle, sometimes with solid tops which made table ...
