Hooray! (I’m baaaaack….)

on

Got there, and many thanks to everyone for their suggestions and help with my WordPress problem. Phew. It made me realise one thing – how attached I have become to blogging. Addicted, moi?

And in the meanwhile, strange things have been happening in the garden…

Is it a bird?

Is it a plane?

Is it my Angelica gigas?

I hope so, I really hope so. Because if not, I’ve bought a triffid.  Watch this space…

  1. Welcome back and glad to hear it’s stopped raining in the UK? Have they lifted the hosepipe ban yet?

      Good to be back in touch with everyone! Phew!

      Hmm – stopped raining but due to start again shortly, possibly with added thunderstorms. Temperature went up quite nicely, but I gather is due back to the seasonal delights of – oh, about 15 degrees. Portugal looks sooooooo tempting….

    Yes, you have an angelica, but take care when it goes to seed, I am still pulling unwanted ones out of the border. Some come up with the purple leaves that I like, any green ones get dug out if I can. The flower heads are marvellous and enjoyed by loads of insects.

    1. kate says:

      Oh good – that’s a relief… I am looking forward to it flowering – I’ll keep an eye out for it seeding, too, as I quite fancy more of them. But there are limits!

  3. patientgardener says:

    Yes its your Angelica – they are wonderful to watch open. Enjoy

      I keep going and checking it out – closer, closer…

    It looks like a triffid to me!
    Welcome back. You have been missed.

      It was labelled as an Angelica gigas, but then it was in the knock-down sale section. Nah, the wonderful Fron Goch wouldn’t go foidsting triffids on people, even if they were in the sale.

      (It looked like nothing when I bought it, presumably why it was on sale – just a teeny bit of green showing. Go sale table!

      1. Dobby says:

        I went to Fron Goch last week and picked up 4 plants off the sale table. All are doing well (so far). And not a triffid in sight!

        1. kate says:

          Ah, you were the one who cleared it out, then! Hrrumpf!

  5. Crystal says:

    I agree with Dobby, it’s a triffid. I believe they look like nothing to start with, just a teeny bit of green, and then………

    1. kate says:

      Stop it NOW. Everyone else says it’s an Angelica gigas except Dobby. It’s an Angelica gigas, it’s an Angelica gigas, it’s an Angelica gigas…

    Glad to see you’ve got everything working again. I know what you mean about being addicted. It’s a bit worrying really. I’m on twitter now as well … oh dear. It’s a bit like letting the genie out of the box.

    Never grown angelica, looks like it’s going to be a stunner!

    1. kate says:

      It’s wonderful – I knew I ‘liked’ blogging, but I’d no idea how frustrated I would get when it became problematical! I’m juts about to sort out a separate twitter account (my other is work, booooring), and then I’ll be tweeting away with the rest of you too. Or maybe I shouldn’t. Hm.

      I’m checking the angelica every day. Any minute now….
