Fidget, you could always wear green wellies (why does spell check always turn that into willies?) under your dress if it makes you feel more at ease.

Horse is Lena, KEF. Gentle and beautiful.

My horse settled very well in her new home. There are other horse friends there, the girl's father's horse, her outgrown pony and an old rescue horse. But the 3 friends she left in the field here have been calling her all day. The girl was so happy, she's bought matching saddle cloths and headcollar.

Dordogne is looking very yellow and brown after all the hot weather. The thunder storm promised for last night didn't arrive, but it's been cooler and cloudy.

I have Princes Diana, Blue Angel, and Etoile Violette. I've just bought Sunset, Betty Corning and Crystal Fountain. But Blue Angel and Crystal Fountain are Group 2 large flowered. I saw Betty Corning in someone's garden, she said it is easy, has nodding lilac bells. It smelt divine.

Morning all.

My little horse, Lena, is going on loan today with a 16 year old French girl who loves her. Her stepmother is a horse trainer so Lena should be fine, but I'll miss her. All my riding friends have stopped riding (age) and I don't feel confident enough, with my arthritic bits, to go out on my own anymore.

Plants for containers in full sun

Petunias, verbena, Dahlias, pelargoniums, annual rudbeckias, salvia farinacea, zinnias (especially short bushy ones). They are all fine in the sun so long as you don't forget to water them. And deadheading keeps them tidier and going on longer.

I think the ones you mention are large flowered deciduous ones. I have 4 of them and have just bought "Sunset". Hagley Hybrid died after a few years, but it was in a pot.
