Gardener John, I like well edged lawns, that is, a cut edge. When I mentioned edging above I was talking about edges like brick or even wood that sticks up above the ground.

"What is this ? "

Yellow slime mould.

A few years ago I took OH to see our old house in Kent. It had 3 acres of garden, I opened it for leukaemia research and entered the local gardening show. The garden has gone, it's more like parkland, grass and a few trees and there is a tennis court where the rose garden was.

I'm sure Charlie wouldn't want arguing. She always seems so cheerful, good presenter.

Myosotis I don't like edging either, for the same reason as you and, unless it's set in the ground, you can't mow up to it.

Another hot day so no gardening. I'll have to play being on holiday, but the pool went green and I just can't get it clean. Is now grey with scum on top. Don't anyone be jealous of those with a swimming pool, more bother and expense than they are worth IMHO. Would prefer to live in a cooler country (England).

Just having a rant, don't listen, not a hot weather person.

I'm well, thanks Verdun, about from Arthur Itis, hard to get up from the weeding on my knees. Hope you are well.

aym, The rose is Suttar's gold, when in bud it has a red flush on the outside. The globe is Didiscus, but it's not huge, 1 1/2 ins across. Sown from seed as a summer annual.

I have not been very cool this evening, the weather seems to be getting hot again. We ate dinner outside.
