Morning all /afties Pat. Happy August 

I love August too Joyce. It's often the best 'summer' weather here isn't it? Even though it gets autumnal early on in the month - you can feel the change in the air. 

Watched The Imitation Game - astonishingly good film.  Cried at the end  

Back to work for me - typical, the weather's lovely for getting outside today. I still have two weeks to take so it's not so bad.

I'll have to look back to see what happened latterly in the July thread...

have a good day everyone - whether painting, digging, working or ...doing nowt

Gorgeous photos GD. The colour is stunning. Reminds me of a Regina Spektor song  # and the sea is just a wetter version of the sky   

I think we often forget to look up when we're out. I love looking at the sky when out walking. It can be very dramatic and fast changing.

Have these ones on me Pat

BL - hope your leccy's back on. 

I think the vacuum hose is quite a common one  

I've enjoyed the laughs  too - a welcome relief from the news from America, yet again 

I'm off to watch The Imitation Game with Bimberback Cambersnitch 

Night all  

Lysimachia Clethroides

Beaujolias looks lovely obelixx, but I thought it wasn't reliably perennial - or even reliably hardy, which is no use to me. Might be wrong about the hardiness bit, but I think you almost have to treat it as an annual. Very striking plant. 

My white foxgloves have seeded very prolifically Lou. I expect hey'll  eventually cross with others if there's any around, but no one here seems to have foxgloves of any kind, so I'm hoping mine will stay fairly white!

I think Denise will have moved on by now - the  thread's 18 months old!  

Dying hydrangeas? And a poorly clematis?

Posted: 31/07/2016 at 19:57

Yes - hydrangeas are just going over. Nothing unusual 

Your clematis needs watered by the look of it. Rainwater isn't enough when a plant is next to a wall or fence - especially if the fence shelters it from the rain. Clematis need a lot of water  Other planting competes for water and nutrients too.

It was the word 'rock' that did it Hosta... 

I think I'm having some sort of mid life crisis

Not like you Verd...to be misconstrued...

Oh for heaven's  sake - all these nice chicken dinners going on...

I've just had some cold chicken and salad. Couldn't be bothered doing anything else. I get bored of eating sometimes...

I had to re read your comment  about those young men and Hosta too...all these innuendos floating about...

Clari - I'd stay away if I was you!
