Thank you Lyn. North Yorkshire is lovely, miles from you, but Devon is lovely too, we went there 2 years ago. The weather was good too. I see I didn't post any pics with lawn.

Romeo and Juliet in a garden in Domme was lovely. There wasn't a thunderstorm, thankfully.

We visited a fabulous garden near York, called Breezy knees. Quite a new garden, they started planting the flowers in 2006 having planted trees and hedges first to protect it from the wind. The soil was sandy so dried out quickly so they have used weed preventing porous fabric topped with lots of bark chippings. It's worked very well.

Removed another 2 barrowloads of weeds from veggie garden.

Keeps thundering. Hope it's OK for tonight, don't want a storm, we are going to see Romeo and Juliet in Domme, travelling Shakespeare company. http://www.ad-tour.com/ 

White flowers

I love pastel/lilac pink. I'm not much of a one for colour matching. Tend to go for best growing conditions and colour turns up any where, but there can be happy accidents.

I see Dove has found this thread again. I answered in March last year, this - "I'm Busy-Lizzie because I'm Liz and there is always so much to do in the garden and I never seem to have time to get round to doing it all! Shame Busy-Lizzies have got stricken by a fungus - but mine were fine last year"

I dead head mine and they do flower again, also they flower 2 years running, unless the winter is very cold.

Rotting courgettes

They do become like marrows, but I believe they are actually 2 different varieties.

Disease resistant roses

My David Austin climber "The Pilgrim" has never had blackspot at all. A few years ago my climbing Paul's Scarlet was very ill with mildew and black spot. I did what Dave Morgan has said, sprayed and fed and watered it well and it has made a complete recovery. So I would never throw away a rose. I love roses.
