Have a great day with your daughter Dove

Some blue sky here, but resorted back to fluffy dressing gown.  Great displays Ggirl - well done again on the awards.  Still waiting for my pink japanese anemones to make an appearance, although the white are going strong. Off for a quick mooch, then Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho ......


Have you seen this rose?

I like New Dawn too Woody - flowers on, and on, and on....

Does anyone know what this is/was

Agree its a wasps nest - we were told to leave ours there as when next years wasps come scouting they won't take a space thats already occupied.  I think they even sell fake nests as wasp deterrents for that reason.

fascinating creatures though - if you look closely that nest is a work of art

It's my birthday

On a related topic .... there is a beautiful white aquilegia called Dove - i've seen it growing at Wisley and taken a note of the name.  You could have a garden full of Doves

Just sat down and nearly bedtime already.  Chicklet is learning to drive (scary in so many ways) and muggins here gets to take her practising, as OH gets a bit excitable.  Most of the time she just drives to the places I would otherwise be taxi-ing too, but today we went to deserted car park to practise parking, turning and all that malarkey,  Good job it was deserted.  Don't possess traffic cones, so improvised with bright pink washing trugs as markers.  Having a nice sit down with a calming cuppa to recover.

Swoon swoon ..... Waiting more pics with anticipation.  Even the upside down one looks perfect now I have learned how to lock the screen of my IPad.  I could sit and watch that all day

What's the star in your garden right now

Thanks all .  Vicky - I'm a gladioli convert - already planning some bright red ones for another spot in the garden next year.  Will have to change my avatar to Dame Edna
