hot-record temp. yesterday and today-90's. clematis warsaw nike very vigorous-already at 3 ft. while others have just leafed-it should be able to compete with the vitis purpurea for a few years. gravetye beauty seems to have disappeared so must come up with a replacement with the humulus aurea. perhaps self sown morning glories-that intense purple might be good for a season. need to go wading in the canal and whack the siberian elms-today will be hot enough. the garden almost all purple and blue-lunaria ,hesperis, muscari, myosotis, brunnera, veronica the last scillas in the shadiest part of the garden. hydrangeas all in leaf-annabelle the most, quercifolia the least-it refuses to be happy although i try and try-oh,lord.
