Plenty of cake folks!  And OH has just made the G&Ts 

It's quite blustery outside this evening, all the tall perennials are getting bashed about a bit

I grew Graham Thomas up the wall of my single storey studio in a previous garden - it works really well as a short climber and indeed David Austin recommend it for that purpose https://www.davidaustinroses.com/english/Showrose.asp?Showr=426

Hello again folks - it's been cool here all day but I did get the washing dry and did pot on my Begonia semperflorens and the Fuchsia Hawkshead went into a bigger pot until I decide where it's going to live.

Rosemummy - don't feel guilty - they have to learn consequences!  Cupcakes sound good

Yes - Himalayan balsam - I lived next door to someone who grew a plant - it's all over the street now - it catapults it 's seeds with a sort of coiled spring contraption - they catapult them over high fences and walls.  Total nuisance
