Resurrected Fifteen

Morning all.
Rain at last. Thunderstorm in the night. Wet and grey now, 15°. Relief now it's not over 30°. But the bedroom felt hot and rain on the skylight woke me up, so not the best sleep.

I have all sorts of unmentionable things to do in the house that concern dusters and clothes.

Just been looking back at the gorgeous photos here.

Here are some photos of my garden, but they were taken yesterday evening when the light was going and the clouds were gathering for the storm in the night. But thank goodness for the rain. I couldn't believe it was coming so did some watering, which is why the campanula has fallen over. Some weeding needs to be done, but I've been with son on Granny duties as they've had a new baby.

Not just you RB, I don't like being messed about with either, except for my hair being washed.

Computer being slow, taken ages to get here, it's usually OK in the evenings.
Nighties all.

Scented climber NE facing

North East is quite hard, but David Austin has these roses. http://www.davidaustinroses.co.uk/specific-situations/climbers-for-north-facing-walls  But some are better than others. I would recommend The Generous Gardener, my daughter had it in her last house. The Pilgrim's scent is very mild. Teasing Georgia and Crown Princess Margareta take a long time to get going, at least mine did. A honeysuckle should be OK too.

Weeds on drive ways

Posted: 02/06/2017 at 16:43

I use weedkillers, whatever says it's for driveways. It's too big and I don't have time to hand weed it  and often as not the roots break off and don't come up so the weeds grow again.

My Salvia "Blauhugel" flowers it's socks off all summer and the bees love it. Haven't often seen it for sale though.

slug pellets and birds

The slugs and snails shrivel very quickly after being poisoned, my birds don't touch them.

Unless you want to take cuttings.

That is a fantastic Lupin, Barbara!

Fasciation happens with other plants too. Weird.
