John H, I think that clematis is Dr. Ruppel. It's deeper pink with fatter petals than Lincoln Star.

Lovely photos everyone, for me Marion's irises and Simon's Anemone de Caen are special.

This is one of my favourite roses coming into flower, climbing "the Pilgrim".

Glad Tina's OK.

Been a beautiful day today, but storms with hail are forecast for Saturday afternoon when I'm having my charity garden party with plant sale, cake and strawberries and cream. Last year everyone sat down for tea and the heavens opened and about 4 years ago I had it end of May and it was 2° and sleeted! I've worked hard on the garden, getting it ready. I hope the storms hold off.

I've just been pulling out masses of variegated ground elder, Aegopodium podagraria, it's gone into my 3 fuschia ricartonii. Glyphosate in the spring, again, for next year. Done it before, before the fuschia starts growing - but it always comes back.

Wintersong, you would never guess it's a boring rectangle, you've arranged and planted it so well.

What did you do in your garden today?

Thejazz, welcome to the forum. I wish you could come and rid my garden of longstanding, overgrown ivy.

Good Evening FORKERS
