I think this is a penstemon, a tiny one, I bought it at a plant fair last year and it hadn't got a label when i got it home

Anyone know what it is?

Nut, could it be a phygelius or cape fuschia?

Good Evening FORKERS

Hello, I just put my post on the morning thread. It was lovely to meet Bev and no, Fairygirl, no cake. We needed our mouths free to talk!

What a lovely place you have WW. Thank you for all the photos.

Had a great day today, should be posting this on evening thread, but it sort of follows on here. Met Bev this morning, had coffee with her at her local GC. Lovely to meet her, had a good chat. Bought 7 perennials and 4 clematis.

Glyndebourne was wonderful, lovely garden with everyone wearing their party frocks and bow ties, but they couldn't match the poppies! Mariage of Figaro was like a comic pantomime with wonderful music, bit weird! I've only seen operas with tragic endings and this one had a happy ending. We had a lovely meal in one of their restaurants in the interval.

Hever Castle tomorrow. Goodnight all.

Artjak, my sisyrinchium always has a burnt look after flowering too. And it won't stay where I planted it. I now have a few as it seems to seed itself, but they aren't where I wanted them.

How maddening about the farmer, and dangerous. Have you told him of the damage?

Morning all. How lovely, Dove. Hope the weather keeps fine and you have a lovely time.

We are having a once in a lifetime type treat today. OH is taking me to Glyndebourne to see the marriage of Figaro this evening. Forecast was good for today, but it looks a bit damp and grey at the moment.

We had some lovely carrot cake, moist and spicy, at Borde Hill yesterday.

Great Dixter was wonderful, loads of colour and lots of poppies. Sunken garden full of those ladybird poppies with black spots on them. There were so many plants for sle and so many I hadn't heard of that I got totally confused and didn't buy any of them! Oh was shocked! They even had 2 of the clematis I wanted but they were so big I don't know how we'd have put the cover over the boot to hide them from customs.

Took lots of photos, including lupins for Matty!

Hello all. It's a bit late, but it will soon be morning!

KEF said  "Do we all think that BusyLizzie will have filled her car with plants already ? She must have been here a couple of hours"  - so far I have bought one plant, geranium psilostemon, and we have been to Borde Hill gardens near Haywards Heath. Great Dixter tomorrow.

Glad WWs open day went well.

Tired, going to bed, goodnight all.

Yes, Bev, I'll be in touch, hope to see you for a coffee or something at your local garden centre.

I bought a really cheap wooden shelving unit on offer in a DIY place and made staging out of it and treated it.

Skyrunner, if you have a laptop with photos on it you upload the photo here then you write the text under it on your message. The one on Leadfarmer's post is because he's used the Quote facility.
