Matty - mer du sud is a beautiful deep blue in real life too.  Have been searching for a pic, but can only find one where you see it in the background if you enlarge the photo. The lilac one at the front is olympiad - also from Seagates

I have Mer du Sud it from Seagate Irises in Lincolnshire.  I have bought from their nursery, but also from their mail order which was great too - they deliver in Aug/Sept every year

Ok, time for some "before and afters".  We had a messy bit outside our front door that OH decided to tackle.  He cleared it, built a stone wall, filled it with several tonnes of muck and topsoil, and I filled it with plants.  Here it is one year on:


It's my birthday

Morning all Wondered whether the Big Weekend would affect you much Dove Think wine in the garden whilst listening to the warbles of Olly Murs waft over the fence is the way to go.  It'll be over by 11 .....this is the BBC.

looking forward to a long weekend.  Few jobs to do in the garden today, and then Sun/Mon is our village open gardens.  Will be visiting on Sunday,and helping to sell tickets on Monday

Glad your geums are doing well OL - i have a load from the offer a couple of years ago which are putting on a spectacular show
