They're not long-lived flowers, but glorious for a few days. 

Check that they're not thirsty

Good morning all   Hello Verdun

A lovely warm morning here too, with bright sunshine  - Hemerocallis and echilnacea in the front border are budding up nicely, Roscoea purpurea is flowering and Clematis viticella Purpurea Plena Elegans and Venosa Violacea are full of buds and just beginning to open  

The perfume from the honeysuckles as we walked around the garden in the moonlight last night was wonderful.

Verdun, you may be interested to know that a couple of years ago I planted a David Austin rose Mayflower - it is supposed to have a strong fragrance but last year I was a tad disappointed - this year the fragrance is very noticeable as you walk past - it seems to have improved as the plant has matured - hopefully the same will happen with the one you've planted for your mum.

Don't know Blush Beauty, but the flowers of Rosa 'Blush Rambler' are similar but I think its buds are much deeper pink and the growth is much more vigorous than the one in MaJiKs Garden's picture

Do try not to let it get under your skin.  They may not be the neighbours you'd choose, but a peaceful life is worth a great deal

Looks to me like the female flowers of the Black Bryony  - they grow on different plants to the male flowers.

I can't zoom in very much on your photo, but it looks to me like one of the brassicas - possibly oilseed rape or one of the mustards, either a wild one or one of the Japanese ones commonly grown for salad leaves,  but it could be almost any of the cabbage family that has bolted - broccoli, Brussels sprouts etc

Wonky - that all looks so lovely - so proud of you   And what a transformation by changing the colour of the garden furniture - fantastic  

Bet your lovely hubby and Pa Womble are impressed too
