I like New Dawn too Woody - flowers on, and on, and on....
Agree its a wasps nest - we were told to leave ours there as when next years wasps come scouting they won't take a space thats already occupied. I think they even sell fake nests as wasp deterrents for that reason.
fascinating creatures though - if you look closely that nest is a work of art
Know its Wednesday - so Happy Birthday Eve Eve. We can make this one last all week .... It'll be like the Partridge in a pear tree (or maybe a Panda in a Pear Tree)
On a related topic .... there is a beautiful white aquilegia called Dove - i've seen it growing at Wisley and taken a note of the name. You could have a garden full of Doves
Just sat down and nearly bedtime already. Chicklet is learning to drive (scary in so many ways) and muggins here gets to take her practising, as OH gets a bit excitable. Most of the time she just drives to the places I would otherwise be taxi-ing too, but today we went to deserted car park to practise parking, turning and all that malarkey, Good job it was deserted. Don't possess traffic cones, so improvised with bright pink washing trugs as markers. Having a nice sit down with a calming cuppa to recover.
Love the hydrandgea pani-wotsit - only one bloom, but what a whopper. And now i can see why Queen Vic gives you a smile that lasts all day
Swoon swoon ..... Waiting more pics with anticipation. Even the upside down one looks perfect now I have learned how to lock the screen of my IPad. I could sit and watch that all day
Thanks all . Vicky - I'm a gladioli convert - already planning some bright red ones for another spot in the garden next year. Will have to change my avatar to Dame Edna
Great to hear new work is going well Clari. Hold queen vic In your head to get you through yukk work Mrs G. Right .... must wriggle
Wow - what a spread. Glad you had such a lovely time. Visited Blickling many moons ago (chicklets were in a double buggy) - it was where I first saw sidalceas (had to ask what they were). Am i remembering rightly that it has a fantastic yew hedge??
