The twisters are really cool !

Reiver - love your arrangement of terracotta pots.  Your bed looks lovely now - even while you are waiting for the climate to do its bit

KEF - you have your name back !

Great photos - especially love the key lime and Cecile Brunner.  My CB has lots of buds but no flowers yet.  We had one at the old house, mixed in with a white clematis montana, and it was my favourite bit of the garden.  Have planted the same here, but it is a waiting game for it to get anywhere close to the wow factor of the last one.

BBen, if you are taking photos for the record, then please share.  I am finding that sharing pics on here makes me remember to take them, and I am building up a photographic record of the garden through the seasons for the very first time - two birds/one stone etc.  And welcome Herby Lou

Only just started looking at the pix - what a treat.  Everyone has some lovely plants, and some really clever photographic skills.  Enjoyed it so much I am going back to look at them all over again

Bev - really enjoyed our walk - especially with the sun shining.

FG - Daniel Deronda was on my shopping list having seen it at Chelsea - even better getting it in the reduced section !  Flowers were the most amazing colour and the size of dinner plates.

Glad everyone else had lovely days - what a wonderful thing it is when the sun shines!  No gardening - apart from pulling up the odd weed here and there - but plenty of sitting in the sun admiring my handiwork !!

I have recently discovered that cleaning bathrooms on a Sunday evening (after a weekend in the garden) gets my fingers and nails clean in time for work on Monday - so now it has a purpose after all .....
