Evening all - sounds like a busy day all round.  Did my weeding (well some of it) - then the weather was so nice we took the bikes for a spin.  Beautiful out there.

OH bought himself a greek cookbook on holiday, so we have just had stuffed peppers, kebabs with spices bought from the Athens market (wow, what a place, never smelt anything like it), and curly fries (not greek, i fear, but yummy).

and now there is tennis to watch

Lovely Victoria - mine are still going too - seems to have been an incredibly long season for them this year,

this weekends stars are the anenomes.  Wild swan has decided to turn her back on the path - which is lucky as her backside is her best bit anyway.  And then lots of Hon Jou, and some pink ones i can't remember the names of .... Queen Charlotte has buds, but yet to put in an appearance

I've got a few that flower well, and have made it through the last two winters (although they were mild ones) - they are a bit more gaudy than the heleniums they are with, but go well together.  Agree about them flopping though.

can't grow coreopsis - something eats them - think it the meeces
