Thanks Tina. Off to bed now, busy day tomorrow. Night all.

Summer has arrived

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.

Morning all.

As we are on the subject of feet, mine are large and flat and I have plantar fasciitis which makes them burn when I'm on them too long. Nuisance when sight seeing.

Lovely day, gardening again. No gardening tomorrow. Going to a meeting in Bergerac, then shopping for my charity garden party on Saturday, then arranging the furniture for it and the plant stall, hope the weather stays nice.

Letters keep being left out of my typing again, keep having to correct it. It was OK yesterday.

Today, I did a load more weeding, cut grass on edges of walls, put in support for the peas, watered some pots and weedkilled the drive.

I killed Eupatorium chocolate, not on purpose, but we had a drought and I didn't water enough, it was in the 30°s.

Swiss Sue asked if I'd had the Mistral, too far west for that, but we did have gales recently and one big, one medium and two small trees fell on the electric fences. The horses got very excited and the strong young man who does the too heavy for me work came and chopped them up.
