Morning all - late start here - day off, as have a funeral to go to.

Lily - the NT place is Waggoners Wells - one of the first National Trust sites ever acquired.  Its a lovely spot.  We normally link it in with a trot round Ludshott Common which is next door, but had uncle with us yesterday, so kept the walk short and on the flat.

Fingers crossed the camera repair works Fidget - thats expensive kit

Verdun has lots to answer for - do you think he is on commission?  I blame him for agastache, veronicatrum, hellebores, aconitum, wild swan and grasses.  But the agastache take really easily from cuttings, so am expanding my collection for nowt

Welcome home Fidget.  Nothing worse than coming home to a messy house.  Think he deserves to go back to his mum and learn some manners.  But glad you had a good time - we have been loving your photos

Is it fancy dress?  I might need to make a costume

Sibirica is a very vibrant red - i don't think any of the cornus grown for stem colour grow too big, as you coppice them so regularly to keep the stems young and colourful.

I'd donate them Dove, but I fear it would lead to domestic strife ...... he said it would be like selling one of the children.
