Amazing photo David - do they visit your garden often?

Your gardens are looking wonderful Winter, Dove, Runny, Lyn and Verdun. I do love other people's garden photos, so thank you for sharing.

Runaway melons Bob - do you think you'll get any fruit to ripen in there, or is it simply a bid for world domination?

HELLO FORKERS!

Sounds like a good afternoon Fidget

Was a beautiful day here today - feeling pretty pleased that I cleared most of the visible weeds, plus a load of deadheading and a bit of pruning. Feeling a bit achey now ....out of practice with this gardening lark.

HELLO FORKERS!

I've been up for hours too Fairy

Just spent one of those hours watching clouds of butterflies on our buddlejas - hundreds of peacocks, admirals, frittilaries, browns and whites. My ocd nature got the better of me in the end, and had to come in for my I-spy book of butterflies to identify them all.

Plan for today is to do all the things I failed to do yesterday

Hi David - think it is something to do with an advert the site has contracted to run at the weekends for a few weeks, which upsets it all. Dove knows more.

Btw, since you are looking in, just wanted to say I am growing half Eagle sweetpeas, and half other sorts.....the difference is staggering . Will definitely be going 100% eagle next year !

Done precisely zero of what I had planned for today. But feel relaxed
Now trying to psyche myself up to get off the sofa and go for a bike ride ...those holiday pounds have to get shifted somehow. You can't go to Italy without sampling every flavour of gelato on offer .....it would be rude

ID. Please

I'm growing the second one for the first time here - just checked, and the label says its a torenia (mines a purple one, but buds and leaves look the same).

Posting Issues?

Seems to be a common problem Steve .....interim solution is to change your settings to basic editor. That lets you post text, but no smilies (unless you know the keyboard versions ) and no photos. Means I will have to brush off some of my little used adjectives .....amazing how lazy we get when a yellow cartoon face is the way to convey everything !!
