Big clap for the wild flowers, Jacksparrow :clap:. I still have a few oxeye daisies and the dogrose is still sort of flowering. Best thing is the abundance of berries on the largest pyrawotsit.

Where it has been allowed to my Pyrowhatsit is similarly bedecked as are my cotoneasters. The Rowan however is very sparse and the Blackbirds are making inroads in the few that survived the ravages of summer drought and followed by deluges. :hot: :lightning:

Where has it been up until now? Does it know what time of the year it is?

I have a few self seeding foxgloves along the hedge. One of them has flower buds coming.

The mild weather you enjoy down there might encourage it to flower. :spring:

Will keep an eye on it. The flower spike is around an inch or so long at the moment.
