Phantastic photos  Some stunning colour combinations.  Particularly like the photos with the dark skies swirling - makes it look very dramatic.

And Harry is the cutest twiglet I've ever come across

Look after that knee Hosta - not fair of work to grumble and put pressure on you.  If the doc is getting cross you'd better listen - tell work to

Had a bit of a potter, pulled out a few weeds, deadheaded a few pinks, cut back some poppies and hauled up some alliums.  Loads of weeds if you look closely, but the overall impression is good .....so I will have to start going out without my lenses in

Gave the new GW mag a good reading too.  Making the most of my last day of freedom.  Will see you all back on the early shift again tomorrow

I've had some success using SBK targeted at brambles growing through some established azaleas - see thread copied below for suggestions:

Loving that walrus (pic4)

How about the night sky - was it starry away from all the light pollution?  Or was it light pretty much all the time at this time of year?

Welcome back Pdoc - sounds amazing.  Would love to hear more .....not a trip I am ever likely to make, so to experience it "second hand" will be a real treat

Morning All - have a great time at Bressingham.  The New England asters are meant to be mildew resistant Dove - avoid the novi-belgii.

Blue sky bits can be seen here now - so they will be heading Suffolk way soon. Hope Fidget left the suncream in her bag

Quiet day today - time to chop back some of my early perennials (oriental poppies are a disgrace), and have a general tidy up before back to work tomorrow.

Also - something is eating the flower heads off my sweetpeas - leaving only the long stalk behind on the plant - anyone had anything similar ?
