Oooo hosta - sounds scary.  Glad all is extinguished

Lots of giggles and singing coming from our chicklets in the kitchen this evening ... But this is what they came up with

 One of their friends has a birthday tomorrow

Which means she gets to vote in the upcoming bloodbath

Cleome seedlings not easy

I had real trouble with them last year.  In the end I gave up and put the pots aside.....two weeks later i had loads of seedlings.  So i think they are just obstinate

Sounds like you had a great time Dove - so glad she has caught the gardening looking back now

Mr Chicky and I went GC visiting together this afters.  He is a very bad influence on me.  He bullied me into buying some more pulsatillas, a tree peony (which he is going to look after, as my current ones -freebies from mags- are alive but not flourishing), a potentilla, an iris and some aubretia.  I must take him with me more often

 Just having morning cuppa on bench outside front door - still in pink fluffy dressing gown- and our local councillor came to call.  Nothing for it but to brazen it out and talk "politics" for 20 minutes.  

....and now, it is time I got going, before anyone else comes to call

No agastache here yet either Yvie - it is a daily quest to check.  Keep me posted on yours - it gives me hope to know I'm in good company.  I have (?had) black adder, blue boa, blue fortune and some I grew from seed......none are showing, and I can't believe i have lost all 20 of them
