Green gladdies would be great - I've just looked on Sarah Raven's site - this Weld would be fabulous, dotted around and weaving through the bed

Hasn't your brother jumped the gun a bit?  Invitations haven't gone out yet - he might not be invited!

Give it a splash of something acidy green like a euphorbia 

It's on the opposite side of the colour wheel to the colours you've already got

 and will provide contrast and a bit of zing.

Woody, I don't suppose it can cope with a bit of shade can it? 

Morning Chicky

Are you sure they're wasps - lots of people are finding tree bees living in their roof space -  they're harmless and will die in the winter - the males 'dance in the air' outside the entrance to the nest.

Photos of your ponds please

Good morning Woody - I like the look of the Corvedale rose - it's not one I know but now I'm trying to work out where I could put it - I might have to dig another bed   I also like the sound of the pink and blue with a dash of orange - I've got a pink rose with Rozanne in front of it, and a burnt orange crocosmia (don't know which, it 'just appeared') pops up behind them - looks great. 

Don't worry about rain tomorrow, I think it's all scheduled to come to Norfolk
