came home and found some people sitting on the deck smoking grass, drinking wine and looking at the garden. it surprises me how many of my old friends are still stoners-oh well, it's a peaceful sort of thing.hydrangea paniculata heavily budded. it is spurred every autumn and responds nicely. water plants showing off-reeds, rushes, pontaderia-lilies and polygonum amphibius(probably not it's name any more) are unfurling. the polygonum looks like persicaria bistort-very handsome but is a spreader-i pull about 90% out of the water every autumn. stachys helene von stein enormous-but is she worth it? kniphofia green eyed envy seemed to have disappeared but found it overwhelmed by galium, people seldom write what apest that one is. kniphofia little maid-one of beth chattos-looking good-if i could have only one it might be the poker i would keep. but then what would i do with red nancy?
