Gershwin Gala thingy on BBC2  @7.30  - part of the Proms - for anyone who's interested. Can't beat a bit of George and Ira.

I could head further afield then...what's a girl to do...  

Sorted my down pipe..ooh err missus...and sealed it. Another job done  

New border starting to look ready for plants. Might not need too many once I get all the ones in pots planted. Dove's talk of her Canna has persuaded me I need one for it though. It'll take a while as I 'canna' make up my mind which one....that was a Verdun stylee joke  

How do I manage frogs in my garden?

you know - what's green and turns red at the touch of a button?

You'd need to dress up as a little frogherder too Ceres

Oohh errr Lesley...

I'll set the doo dah to record BBC4 - ta   ...or maybe all channels 

I wonder if the lad I met up at Glenshee a few weeks ago is watching. We were discussing a hill in Glen Etive and I'd mentioned that the only thing I could remember about the hill was the stunning clouds of dragonflies en route. He said he didn't recall much either, because he'd gone early, stormed up it and rushed home  in time to watch Andy win Wimbledon the first time!

I've got a new sunny border Dove - all it needs is ...sun.... 

I've been finalising it this afternoon, just a little timber edge to attach, and can start getting plants in now. A Canna would really fit well into the scheme....

Looks nice Verd. White flowers?

Would it be hardy here? Could be nice in my south west-ish facing border at the sunniest end
