Thanks for your helpBloomer ;))

Self Heal? Is it in your grass?

29 Jun, 2012

 

LOL!!!!!!!

29 Jun, 2012

 

That's it ! Thanks Oji :))

I wish I had grass.

29 Jun, 2012

 

annndddd...you're back in the room, remember anything?

29 Jun, 2012

 

Ajuga ?

29 Jun, 2012

 

wot ?

29 Jun, 2012

 

Impressive that Oji recognised this when "blown up"!

29 Jun, 2012

 

That's because I am in regular intimate contact with this plant through trying to get rid of it from what is laughingly called a lawn!

29 Jun, 2012

 

I like it...Lawns should have flowers. :)

29 Jun, 2012

 

Our lawn is full of this this year its a b....... nuisance! But looks rather pretty close up. Now where is the weed killer..............

29 Jun, 2012

 

Hmmm . . . well, daisies and speedwell look pretty in lawns, Pimm's, but I'm not so sure about letting self-heal self-seed!

29 Jun, 2012

 

Well I am pleased you have this problem..it is beautiful :)

29 Jun, 2012

 

Actually, I agree, hence the buttercups and daisies already there, but this little thing is a strangler and I do like a bit of grass as well! :o)

29 Jun, 2012

 

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" . . . and this beholder doesn't have a lawn, so I've heard :))

29 Jun, 2012

 

Self heal sounds like a good thing to have, can you harvets and keep it?

29 Jun, 2012

 

lol.. Sheilabub. that's very true.

29 Jun, 2012

 

i have grass ;)

29 Jun, 2012

 

And I have wine . . . lets all party!

30 Jun, 2012

 

Sorry Pimp - got sidetracked . . . great close-up photo and I too like to see flowers in lawns. :-)

30 Jun, 2012

 

'annndddd...you're back in the room, remember anything?' that made me laugh!!!! ~ Stevie's comment ~ but sadly it happens all too often to me and no i cant remember anything!!!

thats a thought Stevie ~ self heal? is it used in medicine??? is it like a dock leaf?

30 Jun, 2012

 

Lol Sticki ;-))

30 Jun, 2012

 

I would think it is with a name like that Sticki... I heard the other day that Plantain leaves are better than Dock for stings and mosquito bites...You chew the leaf a bit then rub it on.

30 Jun, 2012

 

;-) muddy!!!

i never knew that pimms ~ could be useful, wish i had known about the mosquito bite thing ~ wouldnt have bothered buying expensive lotion to ward off the midges ~ in fact there werent any!!!!

but something keeps biting me when im in my garden ~ perhaps i should grow plantains??

btw i dont have a lawn ~ its more a patch of moss

30 Jun, 2012

 

There is a place you can buy moss by the metre...it costs a fortune, perhaps you should sell some of your lawn ?

Just realised you and STT are doing TV gags ! lol takes a while for me to cotton on to them.

30 Jun, 2012

 

;-)))

muddy have you changed since the last comment???

i wont make much money pimms cos it isnt very big but perhaps it could line a few hanging baskets??

30 Jun, 2012

 

I was investigating for making a small instant japanese moss garden bit...saw the price and decided a few mind your own buisness and a bit of patience was needed.

30 Jun, 2012

 

i have a whole roof full of moss too pimms, and all in little clumps ~ perfect for japanese!!! free to collector i think??

30 Jun, 2012

 

There's not much gets past you is there Sticki? You are right though - hadn't changed my avatar for years and of course you women aren't the only ones with a prerogative (did you hear that Lil!). ;-))

30 Jun, 2012

 

:-) ~ do you know what my job used to be muddy? [no, not police force!!]

i havent changed my avatar at all, it makes it easier, on the other hand i did wonder about something from my island of dreams instead??

30 Jun, 2012

 

I hear everything!!!!!! BaaHaaaHaaaa :)))

30 Jun, 2012

 

I am not sure Pimper, I goggled it a bit and it just said it was good for healing. I will research more when my internet is repaired. It might be a good thing to dry store or freeze who knows. I wouldn't mind some and looks very nice too I think

30 Jun, 2012

 

could have a whole bunch of it in the room ~ maybe that would be good??? im sure there must be some in my 'lawn' maybe i will try it out??

30 Jun, 2012

 

Ideas for Sticki's former profession? . . .

Premiere League goalkeeper?
Illustrator of 'Where's Wally'?
Tax Inspector?
Keeping those 'Cannonball' peas out of the Birds Eye tins?
Solicitor?

Go on, you've gotta give us a clue? ;-))

30 Jun, 2012

 

not the goalkeeper!

um you had to have eyes in the back of your head ~ is that an ok clue?

stevie, if it would dry it would look really attractive hanging up!

30 Jun, 2012

 

Oh yes Miss . . please Miss . . me Miss . . me Miss . . got my hand up as high as I can Miss!!!!

You're too young to be my Mum (she's got eyes in the back of her head!), so am I close? ;-))

30 Jun, 2012

 

;-)))

think you got that right!!! how do you know im too young?

30 Jun, 2012

 

I bet you were top of the class,Muddy..or the front desk,so teachers like Sticki could keep an eye on you,...met your clever clogs type before..always knowing the answers !..Anyone who would think up a question about Cannon ball peas,has a weird sense of thought..but challenging,I give you that.. Lol..is that why you now live on Beans ? :o))

1 Jul, 2012

 

Just been catching up with this blog..really Lolled!
Waht did you teach ST? Know what you mean about eyes in back of head!

1 Jul, 2012

 

Party off,Pixi,..think Muddy drunk the wine ..no sign of him yet,this morning ! Lol.

1 Jul, 2012

 

Bah! lol

1 Jul, 2012

 

Turned the alarm off, turned over and now it's 11 o'clock - usually get up at 6.15 so I don't feel too guilty. I had arranged to meet up with some birdwatching pals from Ispyabird today but the weather caused its cancellation. :-(

1 Jul, 2012

 

That is so good,when you can turn over and not have to get up..but b.......r the birdwatching..weren't we top priority this morning then ?.....Out of sight,out of mind,guys..that's how he thinks ! :o)...only joking,Muddy,sorry you had to miss your day out....

1 Jul, 2012

 

You can sit out in a hide on the coldest day of the year..but a bit of drizzle and you take to your bed ?? !!

1 Jul, 2012

 

It would have involved cakes and coffee too . . . boo-hoo! Never fear Bloomer, when I come down in the morning it's laptop on, BBC news on and kettle on - in that order!
Guilty as charged Pimp . . lol!!!

1 Jul, 2012

my computer goes on before the kettle too!!

1 Jul, 2012

 

Kettle first for me..and the laptop..and I slurp in comfort :o)

1 Jul, 2012

 

No Sticki . . . a disaster is breaking your cake fork! . . lol
Nice one Bloomer. I have 20 mins to myself before waking my two teenage daughters, so it's laptop, news, cuppa and bathroom . . . then all Hell is let loose and I keep my head down!!! ;-))

1 Jul, 2012
