I got it in a French GC some years ago and all it said on the label was Helenium jaune(yellow). Last year it was quite big so I split it in three and that is one of them.

Addict, look something up on Google, click on images, choose your image, click on view original image. Then when you have the pic in front of you click on the bar right at the top of your screen starting with http (URL)  so that it goes blue, copy it (control c, together). Then come back here click on oak tree and it will ask if image is from your computer or external site, click on external site then paste in the URL (ctrl v) and the code will appear in it, then click on insert.

Thank you all. Chicky, first yellow clump is a helenium, then heliopsis, then Rudbeckia Goldquelle.

As I live in France we only have red squirrels and they are really cute, but they are much shyer than English ones and wouldn't dare eat from a bird table.

It's a wild Arum Lily. Those berries are poisonous. Quite an attractive plant if you don't have children, but, if you do I'd dig it up. Mine thought they were sweets and ended up in hospital. Funny thing is, my husband was a dentist and they weren't allowed sweets. Perhaps that's why it was more tempting!

Rebecca is on that Taylor's Clematis site I sent the link for. If you look on the left, Clematis by name and click on that. Looks a good one.

Here is one of my beds in May, looking reasonably neat.

 And here it is again today looking rather scruffy and yellow and red.

 Here is the lower middle bed, gone blue and pink.

Georgie, your garden is looking really lovely, and it's one of those nice pictures that enlarges when you click on it.

I thought I saw a reply from Andy the other day. A thread from someone wanting to know something, not a chat thread.

I think sometimes one is just busy and life takes over. Maybe more people on here in winter.
