Glad you had a good birthday Punkdoc. I looked up the Black Swan in Helmsley, looks yummy, lovely food photos. I know Helmsley, have an old school friend and an uncle in N. Yorks. We are going there in July. Love the Helmsley walled garden too.

obelixx, I think I must have similar taste to you then.

So sorry about the hailstorm. Heartbreaking, it's happened here before. We had a huge storm on Wednesday too, but not hail, just rain to batter the roses, but someone in a local village died when the roof of her barn caved in and several thousand homes were without electricity in Dordogne.

Is this Elderflower?

Use the open flowers, not the buds, but before the flowers lose their fragrance and start releasing pollen. If you shake the flower and it stays firm and no powder or bits fly off then it's OK.

Wow!! Obelixx, great photos. I feel I've seen more of the gardens than I did on TV when there was an awful lot of people talking to each other, instead of showing the plants and gardens. Thank you, you're a star

Do you have to cut it back before it's flowered? It won't harm it to cut it, but it's usually better after flowering. I think it's a spirea.

It is something problematic! Mine hides under the wall and I still have it after over 20 years. I find it very tricky and time consuming to treat as it is in herbaceous borders full of plants. Get rid of it while you have the chance! As Dove says.

I get email notifications (when they work!) which takes me straight to the last post I looked at. I always wonder how it knows which was the last post I read.

Hasn't rained! Planted up 3 troughs and 4 big pots. Cleaned sitting room and 2 loos. Made spag bol for tomorrow - at son's request. Must make choc mousse. Nearly time to eat chicken in mushroom sauce in front of Chelsea - with first new potatoes!

Panda please give me some tips on eye make-up, it makes your eyes look sooo big.
