Caral - your humble pansies look amazing .  The bike on the lawn also made me smile - a good reminder that however beautiful our gardens, they are meant to be lived in too

HELLO FORKERS!

Tipping down here, but if Verd has sunshine its coming our way . Do you think you could flap it a bit and hurry it up? Would be nice to salvage at least part of our BH

What's the star in your garden right now

Love Rozanne too Lizzie - there's a reason it won plant of the century (or whatever that silly Chelsea award was last year - how can you choose one plant for 100 years )

Wendy, the yellow is helianthus lemon queen - not really got into its stride yet this year. It gets to 8 foot and needs no staking so is perfect for the back of my borders. Wish i could find other plants that do the same. Tried a thalictrum elin this year, but it was pretty floppy, and have high hopes for a eupatorium, but the verdict is still out on that one.

Hi Yvie - i keep promising myself a trip to Sissinghurst "next year" - will really do it one day . A friend of mine recommends combining it with a trip to Marchants nursery, which she says is amazing. Maybe a forum trip for us southerners??

Had a mega lie in this morning - could hear the rain pitter-pattering, so knew I wasn't missing much . Have a couple of hours work to get out of the way, then might make some sort of attempt to get this house in order - who knows when the next rainy day might be.

BM - got your email, about to reply.

So sorry about your Mum Verd - can only really send ((hugs)). Grateful that my Dad is still fit and healthy - just quite lonely . Daughters can only do so much.

Hope shoulders improve (Dove and Bekkie), tummies settle down (Lizzie) and walks/drives/outings happen despite the rain (Lily and OL). Sure 8've missed someone - it'll come to me once I've pressed submit

HELLO FORKERS!
