I went strawberry-picking with the kids yesterday. I forgot that my older kids actually pick the berries nowadays and *put them in the punnett* as opposed to *eating* three-quarters of what they pick.

We ended up with over 11 kilos of them!!!



Some we transformed into a strawberry charlotte, we ate some for our afternoon snack with some whipped cream, and the rest got turned into thirty jars of jam I think we should have enough to see us through the next twelve months!

Stunning photo up there, Tredici. Just beautiful.

Today is Flag Day here in the U.S. This isn't a particularly good picture of the flag -- I took it on Memorial Day so it's at half-mast -- but I thought it was a nice pic overall.

The beautiful rose Munstead Wood, taken at David Austin rosegarden this morning... it smelled amazing.

This boat is on the Desborough Channel, cut out to avoid a meander on the Thames in Walton and opened by Lord Desborough hence the name. If it was in Chigley it would have been Lord Bellborough except that only exists on TV.

I've been enjoying the talents of the posters here for a while. It's a thread I really look forward to checking out. I've finally figured out how to post images (yayyyy) and look forward to taking a more active part.


I discovered these in my garden recently. Two had hatched but not yet dried, with one pupa not far behind. The middle one didn't make it, but the top and bottom one finally spread their wings and flew away.

Welcome MadMags! What a super photo, I'll be looking forward to seeing more from you.

My sister and I were both hoping that somebody here could tell us what this plant is. It is growing in the gardens of our mother's residence.

Judging by the leaf, this appears to be some sort of Ligularia. Without knowing what the flowers look like, my best guess would be:

Ligularia dentata 'Desdemona'

Think you are right there Jakeroo... usually like boggy ground, but seem to cope with normal soil in most places.

Thank you Jakeroo and Sherry! I'll keep an eye out for flowers, and take more photos. The garden it is in is beside a brook and rather boggy bit of woodland, though you can't tell from my photo, so it would seem to fit.

Sue, your photo is a great image for Jersey tourism - could easily be in the Med
PDAZ, here's a 'flying flag' image of the star spangled banner, taken at the U.S. Embassy in Grosvenor Square, London today.
OK, I'm a day late for USA flag day, but I hope y'all forgive me

I am not sure if there is a connection but the person in the house next to me has removed a leylandii hedge since last year which was fairly tall and right next to the party wall. The palm has gone crazy, I haven't seen any others with so many flower bracts, it is just smothered.

It's possible, as when I moved in the house I'm in 13 years ago next week, there were nine crepe myrtles along the back fence, not counting the seventeen trees in the yard. They slowly died out as there were too many. Now, there's one tree and a rose of Sharon. There will probably be one tree added, and that's about it. The tree that was in the backyard had to come down, as it was blown partially apart in a storm in February 2007. We had sustained winds that day of between 45 and 55mph, with gusts upward of 65-70mph...and no storm cloud around.

Been off for a few days of vacation. As usual so many great photos to catch up on in viewing.

Sherry - I LOVE that Patti's Plum Poppy and wish I could smell that gorgeous rose.

The picture of Alex coaxing ClaraSue into a chase is so cute. - As are the fighting seagulls and the dressed up zuchini.

The strawberries look more than good enough to eat. (Or dip in chocolate)!

Sue - That palm is simply stunning and thanks Picqero. Beautiful Americana picture and much appreciated.

Welcome MadMags. If your butterflies are the first offering we all look forward to many more!

Now I will send everyone a little bluebird of happiness. A nesting pair had some babies up under the corner tile. I spend a lot of time watching them ferry in the smorgasbord.

Copago, I think I'm going blind looking at your photo!

Tredici, love the bluebird. We used to have so many bluebirds visit our house in NM. I sure miss them.

Bhs, it seems like SC is getting an awful lot of rain this year, doesn't it?

We're out of the drought!! We had two thunder/lightning storms today -- morning and late afternoon. It has rained every day for the last week and half, at least. I can feel the mold LOL.
