Glowery skies and windy here too.  And the next few days not looking much better - looks like it will be a weekend of potting on in the GH - which is much needed.  House cleaning might even get a look in too

Fidget - thanks for saving the Tiger tale til my dinner was nicely digested.  One of my friends has a cat who does a similar party trick with worms

Lupin border, but what else

Red - sorry, didn't mean to be cryptic.  Just meant that you might be able to squeeze some tripods of canes between the lupins and use them to grow climbers up, and make use of the empty space ("sky") above your new border.  You could try with sweetpeas this year to see if you like the effect, and move on to something perennial next year if it works as a look.

Love your arch Wintersong - and the rest of your garden is billowing - gorgeous.

fairy - a treat to have tulips now that ours are all over - anyone would think it was part of meticulous planning on your behalf

You could put in wigwams of canes and make use of the sky between the lupins too
