Hosta - knee  

Look after yourself tomorrow 

I know what you mean jo - we had our best weather in April  This time of year is often when we get good stuff but it's cold in the mornings and early evenings of course. 

My garden doesn't know what season it is - the purple hellebore started flowering a few weeks ago and is completely covered in blooms, albeit slightly paler, and today there's a pasqueflower with two rosy flowers on it. 

I ain't complaining

Isn't this a fairly normal time of year for dahlias to be flowering - August? 

They won't all flower at exactly the same time anyway Stanley. Like many plants, some varieties will be later than others. Have you got a selection of different ones? Growing conditions vary in different parts of the country too.

Verdun's in the tropics of Cornwall so everything flowers early

Smart move Dove - it was just starting when I came home at lunchtime but wasn't around long enough to see much. I'll watch the highlights but I don't like what's her name...Gabby Logan  

Love Michael Johnson though. He was always one of my heroes. 

Moving into a house with Foxgloves?

Matthew - don't let the scaremongering media whip you into submission. It's mainly common sense. There are loads more dangerous scenarios inside the house than outside

I use old Goretex walking jackets too pansyface. Those cheapo rubbery ones are very hot and  unpleasant - unless that's your 'thing'...

Not sure which mishap is worse ...

It's quite frightening when those stones hit the windscreen. 

Still some sun here but cooling now of course. Only just in double figures when I left this morning and a heavy dew on the grass. 

Great result in the men's long jump

As they say there's no such thing as bad weather only unsuitable clothing! 


They've never been on a Scottish hill in July  barry...

Hi Green Claws- to be honest, any half decent waterproofs will do the job well enough. You'll get a good selection in any outdoor shop. You wouldn't need anything top of the range unless you garden in very extreme conditions. Something slightly bigger than normal so that you can  get warmer layers underneath is probably a good idea too.  Most people opt for wellies in wet weather, but many use walking boots - I use my old ones unless it's very wet underfoot. Hats are a more personal thing. I would simply put a hood up as I don't like hats! 

What is this please
