I am a big fan of phlox paniculata - never need staking, and loads of colours to choose from.  Flower from early July til end August.

Gorgeous well DD

Busy day of weeding, planting and pruning.  Out there all day.  At one point could hear a right racket of twittering in of our oak trees - a flock of redwings had come to call  very excited, as have never seen them here before.

Mr C is ok at the moment - waiting for procedure at the end of this month to find out exactly what his new problems are. 

What plant is this.

I can't tell either - but you could probably get asimilar effect on a north facing wall with a climbing hydrangea

Morning   A day in the garden beckons for me too.  Need to do lots more weeding (using my new "lush" kneeler) and have some foxglove seedlings from last year to plant out. Plus a few lovelies from my garden visit on Friday ...managed to squeeze them in amongst Chicklet's shoes  A red corydalis, a clover like something, a borage, and some purple and white stripey crocus (sounds garish, but looked quite stunning naturalised in their grass).

And must remember to sow my Cosmos seeds too

Don't want to sound mean Lizzie, but hope SIL stays forlorn. All a bit tense here.

Think David is in the States - possibly Nevada?

my pulsatillas are showing their leaves, but nowhere near flowers yet.  Guess they will miss "pasque" this year

but I do have daffs and hellebores hanging on, and chinodoxa and primroses starting. And Molly the witch nearly bursting with her enthusiasm for the season
