Morning All - lie in for me

Looks like the sun is going to hide behind the clouds here today - which is good, as i have two garden areas that need some attention, and i would have melted if i'd attempted it yesterday.  Both need a serious weed and tidy up, and some judicious hacking back too.  Thats a gardening skill that never gets enough attention in the literature.....the great hack back.  Maybe i should write a book .....

Woody - we want pictures of your awards, trophies and prize winning entries

Wonderful pics Artjak - i have never been there at the right time to see the meadows in their full glory - absolutely spectacular  Can you imagine having that (and all the rest of it for that matter) outside your back door.  The gravel garden is pretty special too.

and what a happy lot you all look - lovely

Lily - its a phlox - think its bight eyes.  They do well for me here, so are the bedrock of my midsummer garden - good job they come in lots of colours
