I've got a few that flower well, and have made it through the last two winters (although they were mild ones) - they are a bit more gaudy than the heleniums they are with, but go well together.  Agree about them flopping though.

can't grow coreopsis - something eats them - think it the meeces

Missed you early birds but a lovely cuppa being enjoyed here too.

have two very weedy patches to attack today, but apart from that its a quiet time out there at the moment.  Still picking raspberries, plums and tomatoes.  But some of our trees are starting to colour up, so the seasons are definitely a-changing.

are you planning any garden visiting in Italy Lizzie?

Dad still healthy, Mum died 5 years ago - far too young.  Not sure its something you ever really get over.  

So haven't yet had to deal with elderly parent problems - but my heart goes out to those who do.  Must be very difficult when the carer roles are reversed.
