KEF - enjoy - no heatwaves forecast here, so all will be fine.   (any room in your suitcase for a stowaway?  - I could do with another week on a lounger ...

I grow them (deer leave them alone - Lizzie take note !).  I have amethyst dream and amethyst in the snow.  Both lovely, and both give me two lots of flowers.  I'm sure with your skills, and your climate, you could get them to give you THREE !!

Don't know what happened there - and it was before the wine was even poured!!

Pentillie - what difficult times - positive thinking is so important, but much easier said than done.  I pass Heatherwood Hospital each day on my journey to and from work.  Will say a little prayer each time I pass.

Lovely larkspur - my favourite blue !!

TT and Potty - don't even want to start to think what they might have done with that trumpet !  (definitely before my time).

Bev - I just sent you a PM.

Work finished .... wine starting ...

Good work Garden Girl - mind your fingers, that stuff is razor sharp !

Hope all goes well with impending grandchild TT - exciting, but worrying all at the same time.  Will be keeping fingers crossed (well, obviously not whilst typing, as that would result in gobbledegook).

Got some work to do (the world's gone mad), but got two computers side by side, so might pop in here again later.

Morning - another grey start here - although yesterday was gorgeous once it got going.

Yesterday stumbled on some photos of the garden last year - looked very sparse compared to this year - didn't realise how far we had come !  Must take more photos as we go.  This site has made be better at remembering to do that!

Missed this when it was first posted - but had to add (belatedly) - your garden is stunning Lyn, so colourful and full and burstiing with life.  I love it ~!!

Just watered my pots.  Been admiring my agapanthus which are blue as blue this year.  About to collapse.  Hope everyone has a great evening.

Michael - i sometimes get little gnats on my soil in the pots in the GH - never seem to do the plants any harm, but they make me itch just looking at them. I would just wait and see - as folks often say on here they have two chances !

Poor Lizzie - sounds uncomfortable - hope it clears soon.  Will be giving my liatris a wide berth.  Best blame it on the moles

Matty- what a worrying time for you - hope she is ok when you visit, and that it will put your mind at rest.

best get back to staring out the train window...
