Hardening off - is this a good way?

Just thought I'd mention that the Met Office UK forecast mentions the likelihood of some chilly nights during the first half of June - it doesn't say how chilly ................

I agree with Maggienewgardener - Calendula officinalis - the seedheads are a clear giveaway

Fishy, all spare tyres are strictly ignored on this forum - they are purely reserves of energy, like with camels

....Dove's are silvery and soft, so I was thinking Stachys Byzantina, but I don't know if she likes it. She's just made a pond and that's more for dry places.

 

Well, I've certainly 'embraced the silver' as my hairdresser says (much cheaper without the colouring) and although we have a pond in the back garden, the Stachys might be just what we need out in the west facing front garden

Seems only 5 minutes ago that people on here were complaining about Carol's 'over enthusiasm' and 'artificial brightness' or some such terms.  

To misquote Abraham Lincoln, it seems that "....you can please some of the people some of the time, but you'll never please all of the people all of the time"
