Then, Hostafan, you are in a minority of at least two, because I agree with you. Also about the gravel garden.

It's my birthday

Morning all. Another hot day. 38° forecast for next Wednesday.

Going to DD's Open Garden tomorrow afternoon. I hope she's feeling OK.

marigolds infested with blackflies

Thanks for the photos. They are indeed French Marigolds, oeillets d'Inde. I am surprised too. Perhaps there weren't any other plants around for the blackfly to land on, apart from the fuschias. What a shame.

If it's turf I think you will get away with it. The grass is already grown up.

Why doesn't my philadelphus smell?

Perhaps it's a Deutzia. They can look very similar, depending on the sort.

Do you live in France pz? I do. I grow French Marigolds from seed and they have never caught blackfly and they smell quite strong. Are yours really French Marigolds? Do you have a photo?

His lawn was amazing, I think I'd be scared to walk on it. But, I must admit, there are other things I would rather do than make a lawn perfect.

If you can wait for weathering the new one will eventually look like the older part. Otherwise look for some woodstain the right colour.
