Another mystery plant

and how I’m trying to get rid of it!

Alien plant in flower

Alien plant in flower

 

Much of the middle bed was full of a flower I just didn’t want in my garden. It’s so ugly! The flower isn’t so bad – even though it’s yellow – but the stem is thick and grey and has rubbery spikes instead of leaves. It grows up all hunched over throughout May and then in June it straightens up and flowers.

I dug it all up when I got the chance in July. About 60 of them all together; I got the kids to help when they got bored. Then I advertised them on Freecycle and surprisingly I got 4 responses. I divided them up and gave them away, but 1 person didn’t come and collect. However, someone else told me about the nearby Glastonbury Gardeners’ Group and that they do plant swaps. I’ve joined the group and will take the rest of the spiky rubbery plants along to the next one

By the way, it’s definitely not in the RHS Good Plant Guide and I haven’t seen it in any of the gardening articles I’ve torn out of magazines. I think it’s an alien mutant plant.

Garden,

Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself

This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…

Looking for the perfect base – Review of Boots No 7 day cream; Rimmel mattifying primer & Bare Minerals matt powder foundation
October 12, 2017
I’m sure I could be psycho-analysed about this; but I cannot run out of something unless I’ve already bought the thing I’m going to use next – even if I know that’s not for some time! During our recent trip to America, I planned on buying a few products that I regularly use so that I have them all set to go when I ‘hit pan’ on my current ones! The first of these is the No7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream. I stood in my local Boots a couple of months ago and couldn’t bring myself to spend £25 on the next one, so I thought I’d wait until I could get it slightly cheaper across the pond. The second item was Maybelline mineral powder foundation, but as they didn’t have that any more, I was tempted into buying the Bare Minerals matte powder foundation instead. The primer was an impulse purchase as I was drawn in by the ‘mattifying’ bit on the label. Yes, there is a theme here. And yes, if a matte moisturising day cream existed, I would buy that too!….
