Morning Hosta, Morning All

have a good journey home this morning ....if you see any Queen Mum agapanthus on your travels could you pick me up a couple.  Wisley yesterday convinced me I need some light blue ones to complete my collection

Off to the mines myself ...but only a 3day week this week .....it will be over before its begun.

jollies sound fun, both Panda and Fairy - are you counting the "sleeps left" yet??

Welcome back Yvie - glad you had a good time.  Garden taming, diet and washing machine abuse can all wait whilst you enjoy that holiday afterglow for a bit

Not sure this is really how you should use an expensive, custom built compost heap

Back from Wisley - glorious there. Pictures will go on appropriate thread this evening. Was followed home by a Black Knight (buddleja) - tried valiantly to fight him off, but we were no match for his armour and sword

Hope Topbird and her magic knickers are having a good time

Recliner, shady ash trees and campari sound a divine combination
