Thank you. By August many of the blues and pinks will have faded away. Heleniums, coreopsis, rudbeckias and heliopsis are starting to come out. And dahlias, of course, they are late this year as they got frosted in the spring.

Morning all.

I'm sorry to hear of your OH's passing, Joyce, but glad that it was peaceful. I hope you have family around to support you. Thank you for including us and I'm sure there are many among us who would like to give you a hug and hold your hand in this distressing time.

It's open next Sunday, Fairygirl.

Sleep well everyone. I hope Joyce and her OH are OK.

The GC was disappointing, I bought a couple of delphiniums and a pair of gardening gloves. At least the loo, for once, wasn't out of order. I'd wanted a nice indoor plant for the friend we are going to lunch with on Wednesday but I didn't like anything in my budget. Ended up getting one in the SM which had a much better choice.

Spent over 5 hours gardening this afternoon. Think I'm winning with the bindweed!

The blackbirds have had my blueberries too, Nanny Beach, even though I netted them  Gosh, dogs do eat weird things! I love Border Collies.

Have spent over 5 hours this afternoon weeding, edging, tidying, planting.

Morning all.

I read that article, Hosta. Great news that Malta is allowing gay marriage, but I think it is a shame to suppress the words "husband and wife". I have a couple of friends who are gay, lesbians. They refer to each other as "my wife". So why can't you have "husband and husband" and "wife and wife"? Just means you are married, not to do with whether you are gay or hetero.

Need to go to the SM this morning so shall go and have a browse in the GC next door. Haven't been for a bit because OH usually comes with me. He loves the SM but gets bored in the GC. He's back from Norfolk tomorrow. I need a decent sized flowering plant to fill in gap where oriental poppy has finished. Also edging shears, if they have any. Only recently arrived in Dordogne. Don't think the French bother with edges. Mine date from 1973 and are not as good as they were.

Great to have you back, Fairy. Lovely photos, as usual.

Edged the upper middle bed with the D tool. Weeded and unwound and pulled up lots of bindweed. Took ages. Bindweed seems to like the heavy rain we've had. Garden Open next Sunday. Will I ever be ready? The rain has battered it all.
