I was going to say Papa Meilland, before I saw pansyface's answer.

What's the star in your garden right now

They are lovely rudbeckias VS, I especially like the orange ones.

David, your garden goes on and on! Is it very big to have so many plants?

HELLO FORKERS!

Still storming and raining. Have done the shopping for the BBQ, wanted to sweep the terrace, too wet. Hope it doesn't rain on Saturday. The garden did need it though, no rain for nearly 2 weeks.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all.

Huge storm early this morning. The portable telephone isn't working, will have to get a new one. The ones that just plug in the phone sockets are OK.

Doing a charity BBQ on Saturday must go shopping for it today. OH has just done a lot of hoovering  In case we have to eat inside if it rains, hope it's fine, makes it so much easier. About 36 people.

HELLO FORKERS!

Thank you everyone for my birthday wishes yesterday, and on the birthday thread. Perhaps someone mistook BL for RB!

Spent a lot of the day today with son and baby grandson. Son bought me lots of tulips for my birthday. We went to the GC.

DD, people complain that there are harvest mites which bite when you walk on grass, called "aotats" here. They don't affect everyone, I think you have to be allergic to them.

When to move Salvia Amistad

Thank you Verdun, I have Salvia Amistad too, but it's nearer 4' than 7'. Wasn't sure what to do with it.

It's my birthday

What a lovely spot that garden is in, ighten. Some lovely gardens here, have been to the Helmsley walled garden and the Sussex Prairie Gardens.

When on holiday by Lake Garda last week we visited Sigurta Park which is huge and really more of a park than a garden. Loads of Busy Lizzies!

 

New nieghbours, new fence and eye-saws

I think jenny j's idea of a fence on your side with a trellis on it is good. Or a rustic pole trellis. Years ago, my husband made a rustic trellis, using chestnut posts, quite tall, like the one in the photo. You could put one on your side of the fence, should be allowed as it's quite open. Ours filled up quickly as we planted roses and clematis up it and made a bed in front with cottage garden plants such as perennial geraniums.
