Love that raspberry ripple - very jealous

Great day here.  Did lots of weeding that I hadn't intended to ....jumped in the flowerbed to pull out one, and was still there a couple of hours later.  But if I hadn't been there I wouldn't have spotted the flower bud on my tree peony, which has been there for about 5 years, steadfastly refusing to perform

Then potted on 48 rudbeckias (.....who needs 48 rudbeckias I hear you cry), and the annuals which willbe ready for my pots in a few weeks time.  If I thought the greenhouse was full before, then it is positively groaning now.

Great clematis Panda

The ones I have in pots seem to fare much better AL.  I have done nothing to mine this year - no picking or patrolling, and no pellets.  Other years have been much worse, but it does tend to vary quite a lot.

Pdoc - is it a budget/funding thing that we don't train enough home grown staff ?  I have never understood why thousands of bright kids, who aspire to be medics, fail to get accepted on courses because they "only" get a gazillion A*'s, instead of the required gazillion and 1.

Lesley - I will miss Liri, and obelixxx, by a day.......but will wave to you all when the paparazzi pick me out from the crowd

Will start a new thread for AquGM later - need to get some pics first.

Meant to say yesterday Lesley that I sympathise on the fledgling front.  We have blue tits in the eaves, and goodness they make a racket.  Luckily outside the spare room, so not disturbing anybody's sleep
