A pre-1930s weight limit sign on a now locked little bridge across the river Lea in Ware. I've passed this for most of my life and as it was sideways to the road and painted black I didn't ever see it, someone put it on my photo site or I'd never have at all.

No parking? Sure seems like it at this Walgreens on the corner of Coit Road and Belt Line Road in Dallas.

You can tell that's not a British parking sign, Dave, here it would say:

"0 Mins £5, plus £2 per additional 0 minutes thereafter." wink

Here's the flowerbed in my front garden, now in glorious technicolorô:

Your flower bed looks gorgeous flopsy. All the work and mess while it was being done has really paid off and you have a gorgeous, low maintenance, garden.

Aww, thank you Chris. My neighbours have been away for a couple of weeks - they said they couldn't believe it when they got home and discovered a riot of colour opposite their house. Here's an anemone especially for you:

Thanks flopsy. My Gran loved anemones, she always grew them in the garden, along with Sweet William because William was my grandfather's name.

Another day, another bee, another plant. Well, I suppose that it might conceivably be the same bee... but the plant is definitely different. Whatever it is. smile

Might be an Agapanthus flopsy. I like these, nice simple Nicotinia, lovely scent, especially in the evening, and the bees love them as well.

Ooh, I like Nicotinia too although I forgot to plant some until it was too late.

Nope, my flower is not an Agapanthus - I know what they are and this is definitely not one. I'll try to get a pic of the whole plant tomorrow.

A bit of detective work and help from my friend Mr Google tells me that my mystery plant is a Phacelia tanacetifolia, aka Purple Tansy aka the Honey Plant because bees love it so much. As do hover flies, lacewings, and ladybirds. It originated in Mexico and the southwestern USA.

This is one of the plants in my garden - as you can see, the leaves are toothed. When the flower bud appears it's globular and covered in small spikes but as the plant grows (it gets to about two/three feet high) that round 'bud' turns out to be a mass of tightly curled sprays of flowers. As the flowers develop, the sprays uncurl. As you can see, each head of flowers contains several sprays and each plant has more than one head of flowers.

This is what happens when you use a bag of mixed seeds - who knows what magic will grow!

That is really nice. With a bit of luck it will prove to be a prolific self seeder.

Apparently it self-seeds quite freely, the only problems being seriously wet soil and/or a very cold winter. But as I don't plan on being in this house forever that won't be my problem... although I will need to remember to gather seeds at the right time so I can pass them on. smile
