Don't change plans for me, but if it was later in August, and at a weekend, i would love to come - just checked google and it is only a 2 hour drive for me.

Can you identify this?

Have a great time Panda.  I've been out watering too, Woody - didn't have time last night as work has got a bit manic.  Lovely and fresh out there at this time though

Mouse has nibbled through covering of super heavy duty hose - now not so super heavy duty, and more reminiscent of the Trevi fountain

Later peeps

Just seen the same article Dove.  Can't believe places not 50 miles from here had torrential rain enough to flood, yet we were basking in sunshine with not a drop -strange weather

Got everything done in the end - two problem areas now look very tidy.  Pleased but xhausted.  And work again tomorrow - would love another couple of days in the garden

Look after that ankle OL - sounds nasty.  Think i might go and get cleaned up before i slump for the evening - have a good one all

Oh btw - a week with a peanut feeder hanging by my sweetpeas and the aphids are gone - isn't nature clever

Helianthus lemon queen gets to 8ft and needs no staking - one for the back.  I also never need to stake my phlox, which stand 3-4 ft proud on their own.  A couple of judiciously placed shrub roses are good for things to flop on to.  Plus heleniums, echinaceas and shasta daisies all hold their own pretty well.  

I have to stake my delphiniums, oriental poppies and peonies, but not much else.

hope that helps
