Looks like a phormium to me - New Zealand flax.

Don't grow them myself, so can't advise on looking after it ......but no doubt someone who knows will be along soon

Morning Liri - missed you there 

Hosta - just gone back a few pages for a proper look at the pics your friend took of your garden (saw them on a phone during the week, and promised myself a big screen look at the weekend )

Absolutely stunning

Dry here, so a bit of tidying and pottering (house 🏑 and garden 🌸) are the order of the day, as we also have a holiday coming up   

Good to keep busy Yvie - whats second born doing to her garden?

Slab manipulation sounds like hard labour Fairy - how's the "hot" 'stension bed coming along?

Looking forward to the Giverny pics Lizzie - we have a trip planned there next May - went about 25 years ago, so time for a return visit methinks

Looking forward to Beechgrove and GW Dove, we were glued to athletics last night πŸƒπŸΌπŸƒπŸ»‍β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΌπŸƒπŸ»‍♀️

Morning all - thanks for the weather update Pat.  Sadly, Adelaide's midwinter is looking about the same as our midsummer at the moment .  But at least the torrential rain seems to have eased.

LilyP - plans are afoot for a trip to Australia this autumn .  But we have to wait for the A-level results to determine littlest Chicklet's future before we can really plan anything is a bit logistically complicated at the moment

Out for dinner with friends last night - good time, but could do with an extra hour in bed this morning

Pat - Chicklet had to go on a jumper buying expedition in her first couple of days  And she has rainwear that's being put to good use too .  She's settling in nicely I think.
