Morning all๐Ÿ˜€

Just back from a fab holiday in Mallorca.  Lovely little hotel, would happily go back there again and again.  Wall to wall sunshine and very little done, apart from hold down some rather skittish sunbeds (they fidgeted unless you lay down on them motionless for long periods of time), and read lots of books.  In the evenings, when it got cooler, Mr C and I did a few stunning cliff walks and climbed a mini-mountain.....Fairy would be proud of me - first time I had followed cairns for years

Have returned to a garden in pretty good shape, thanks to our lovely NDN.  Not back to work til Monday so got a few days to potter around house and garden to get things sorted.

Only read back a few pages, but so pleased to see DD and Charlie getting settled - Charlie's smiles say it all

Penstemon are perennials - some folk have trouble getting them through the winter as they can be borderline hardy, but in Guernsey you should have no trouble

Lizzie -  Thompson and Morgan do laurentia seeds (its called isotoma too) - maybe you could get some delivered to your Norfolk cottage in time to sow next year?  Its one of my favourite (deer proof) summer annuals, and it always performs well here.

Where in the world are you?

I'm one of those woosie southerners, at the crossroads of Surrey/Hampshire/Sussex ....lots of things round here called Three Counties xxxxxx

Work full time, but spend as much of the weekend as I can get away with in the garden .....come rain or shine.  Love it
