HELLO FORKERS!

OL - dividing plants is normally done in autumn or early spring - wouldn't do it now as the heat will stress them as they try to get re-estabilshed.  Loved your before and after pics, but couldn't see enough of the borders to be able to give divding advice - maybe some close ups of potential candidates might help?  You can normally tell if they need dividing because they get a dead area in the centre.  However if you want to  divide them to make more plants then go ahead as long as they have formed a big enough clump to have a few growing points.  Hope that helps

Too much to catch up on to remember it all - but Fidget rocking the earmuffs and scarf look made me lol

Glad you had a promising afternoon OL, hope Panda has arrived (right way up) and love MrsG's huge bruga flower

Don't change plans for me, but if it was later in August, and at a weekend, i would love to come - just checked google and it is only a 2 hour drive for me.

Can you identify this?

Have a great time Panda.  I've been out watering too, Woody - didn't have time last night as work has got a bit manic.  Lovely and fresh out there at this time though

Mouse has nibbled through covering of super heavy duty hose - now not so super heavy duty, and more reminiscent of the Trevi fountain

Later peeps

Just seen the same article Dove.  Can't believe places not 50 miles from here had torrential rain enough to flood, yet we were basking in sunshine with not a drop -strange weather

Got everything done in the end - two problem areas now look very tidy.  Pleased but xhausted.  And work again tomorrow - would love another couple of days in the garden

Look after that ankle OL - sounds nasty.  Think i might go and get cleaned up before i slump for the evening - have a good one all

Oh btw - a week with a peanut feeder hanging by my sweetpeas and the aphids are gone - isn't nature clever
