Thank you for the lovely photos. Sounds exciting getting to the sunken garden. You look young and slim.

Hi Keen. It was in Devon, may have been Rosemoor.

I like lysimachia, it's all so easy and grows in my problem clay bed. Have clethroides, pretty but tends to wander. I also like centranthus ruber, planted one plant years ago, but it quickly decided it didn't want to be in a bed with decent earth so it moved off to cracks in the walls and stone terraces, where I like it very much.

Since Keen has posted his photo I will be very brave. This is me in a typical pose!

MORNING FORKERS

Morning all. Horse foot trimmer has been, some watering done (still no rain), washing is on line, swimming pool sides brushed. Just got 2 beds left to make before arrival of family. Daughter No.2 rang last night to say she's coming this evening instead of tomorrow. Daughter No 1 coming for lunch tomorrow. 2 has little girl and boy and 1 has 3 small boys. Son 2 coming tomorrow, son 1 coming Friday with wife and adorable 1 year old daughter, he's working until then. Supermarket this afternoon.

Off to weed couch grass out of kitchen terrace bed.

Leadfarmer, another hooray, I bought a Pilu this year and at last I found Dr. Ruppel that I so admired in one of your earlier pics.

Chicky, that's so pretty. I've never heard of Isotoma, wonder if they sell it in France. There are deer here.

Good to know about General Sikorski. I bought it last year in a GC in England, 4 small clematis plants for £12. I got 3 Montanas as well, two to cover OH's new shed. They've all grown really well.

Hope you are better soon puncdoc. Wish we could have shared your rain. So dry here, but north west Dordogne has had huge storms, people without electricity.

Dahlias and annuals are providing the most colour at the moment. Some of the plants others have mentioned are nearly over here.

 But the yellow heliopsis is bright too, and heleniums are out and coming out.

What can I grow here?

Now I've just looked back and seen you've asked for a tall plant, bother, it's not very tall.
