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 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.

Garden,

10 ideas to help you get through the day

I’m writing this on the dreariest January day ever with rain pouring down and freezing cold hands; it’s barely surprising that we are likely to feel depressed at this time of year. Some are lucky enough to only feel low in spirits every now and then, while others suffer with melancholia so bad they lose hope of never feeling that way again. The best way to deal with those times is usually distraction. By all means, take a little time to yourself if you need it, but then I think the best thing to do is find something else to keep your mind occupied. Here are some ideas…..
