30° and over is too hot for me too! I spend a fortune on metered water, but I have butts as well. Usually in the summer we have big storms with heavy rain that keeps it all going. We need one now but the one forecast a few days ago didn't get this far south. I was staying with son further north and they had a big storm. Storms forecast next week.

I don't know yours, Kitty. Don't think I'm very good at this!

Oh dear, I recognise Philippa's, but I can't for the life of me remember its name.


Papi Jo has me flummoxed.

Stunning astilbes, wish I could grow them here, too hot and dry in SW France.


Aym, the blue flowers are Calibrachoa "Amethyst", the pink daisy is an anthemis, the cactus dahlia is "Park Princess" (about 20 years old, never dig it up), the yellow and brown flowers in the trough are rudbeckia "Denver Daisy". It hasn't rained for a month, nearly out of rain water for the blueberries. And it's been up to 30° recently.

Wintersong left because she couldn't stand the new site. She wrote and told me. I hope one day she might look in and see that it's improved a bit since the early days.

Welcome back Steve. I looked up those gardens, they look fantastic and the restaurant sounds goo too!


I've weeded half of the upper middle bed this afternoon, had to wait for the sun to go behind a tree, it was hot and sunny.

I've only seen one so far, some others are recorded. Enjoyed it. Hard to believe Charlie is 50 already!  I always liked her, agree with Verdun.
