Yes please to pics Hosta 

Tbird, we often have wasp nests under our eaves - never seem to bother anyone, and only last a year - they seem to avoid going back to the same place.  Never noticed any smell with old nests either.

I have had a planting spree - lots of cosmos, zinnias and rudbeckias.  More rudbeckias, cleomes, gaura and snapdragons tomorrow and then the greenhouse will be empty save for toms and cucs.  Seem to be very behind this year

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Hope you have your passport handy Clari 

Dad is doing ok thanks Joyce - still hobbling a bit, but now signed off from the heart infection people and waiting for a heart valve replacement.  But in good spirits.  Seeing him, and the other Grandad, on Friday evening as Chicklet is saying her goodbyes.  No doubt he will have Australia stories to share - he and Mum made several visits in the early days of their retirement.

Coming soon... At last ....Chateau de Gateau
