The deer haven't eaten any of my rudbeckias, but they have just eaten a purple phlox for the first time, in the unfenced bit. They have eaten some michaelmas daisies but not others, some years they don't eat any. It seems to be worse in dry summers.

Your rudbeckias look lovely, Chicky.

That was an excellent joke Verdun. Not dirty, not too long

Verdun, I was so sad to read your news. I really hope the support here makes you feel a bit better. The poor family, I feel for them.

I would love mine to be roses, my favourite, and I've had so much bother with deer. I've answered quite a few questions on roses on the forum.

The Church charity BBQ went very well, everyone very jolly. Now clearing up.

Church charity BBQ here tomorrow so been busy preparing. Sun for next week.

Saw the lovely pics, KEF, and enlarged them. Brings back happy memories.

I have lots of bulbs to plant too and masses of dead heading. Don't think housesitters do dead heading. I always say I don't do much, but I must do because it sure shows when I've been away! I tend to nip them off when I do the watering.

KEF, I hope you had as good a time as we had in Venice, any photos? Our bean and tomato diet has already started! When we looked in the spare fridge on Thursday to put stuff for the Church charity BBQ (Sat) we found it was full to the gunnels of tomatoes and beans picked by the house sitter! There are now bags of tomato sauce and frozen beans in the freezer.

Morning all. We got back from hols in Venice and England late on Tuesday night, wet and windy drive from Calais to Dordogne. We had a great time, posted a few pics on "Gardens we have Visited" and "Evening Forkers".

Friends coming to stay for a week, arriving this afternoon, Church BBQ to organise here, hope it doesn't rain, on Saturday, about 37 people coming. So, busy!

We've just come back from Venice and England. We went to Sussex Prairie Garden as well, thanks to Chicky. It was looking great although it was wet and windy. Then we had a mug of tea and warmed ourselves in front of their fire!

 We went to Penshurst Place as well, which was past it's best but there was still colour in the borders.
