I see you decided to let the rainy patch move onwards and upwards Hosta ... it's ok, I just got the washing in 

Sleep tight Pat.

It's all to do with money laundering, although why they expect anyone involved in nefarious activities to tell them the truth beats me 

We're very luck re banks (so far) as there's a branch here in the village  and the staff are really helpful

passion fruit

I imagine you're referring to one of the Passiflora varieties 

The fruits of these plants are edible when ripe, but apparently are not particularly tasty.

Was Ivy a sensible choice ?

Hi Matts and welcome aboard

I don't think that they'll be a problem, as long as you don't let them get ambitious and start spreading across your garden, up your fences and over into your next door neighbours' gardens 

Just chop them back with shears/secateurs when they stray out of their allotted space and they'll be a lovely habitat for wildlife around your pond.

If you could hang onto it for the rest of the morning I'd be very grateful Hosta

Temp only dropped to 16.4C overnight - no wonder it was a bit sticky,    We've had some rain too, so it's a bit fresher out there ... hopefully it's going to stay fine long enough to get a couple of loads of washing dry.

I agree that 'age doesn't equal poor'.  However quite often OAP portions are smaller than the usual ones - I'd quite welcome the opportunity to buy a smaller portion of fish & chips or whatever.  

Some places serve 'children's portions' but won't serve them to adults - think they have 'control issues'.

It might be that the dry weather is preventing the flowers from 'setting' properly. Give the plants a thorough dialling at the roots and spray the flowers with the hose to raise the humidity.
