Have a good time fidge 

Same here KEF. Too hot for me to do anything in the sun trap back garden apart from a little watering. Was going to cut the grass but will leave it till tomorrow after work.

They're very straightforward and it gives them a new lease of life. Bees love the flowers too.

I do too -  when I remember. Which reminds me - I haven't done my white one...

I promise I'll do it later. Could do with a convertible today - scorchio here

Good evergreen hedge plant?

Posted: 18/06/2014 at 07:34

Laurel would be my first thought but Lonicera is quite quick growing and makes a nice hedge too.

Morning all.

Very sad chicky - especially so young. Endless deaths on the Loch Lomond road with bikes. Hope chicklet is alright. Youngest fairy had just started school when one of the other Primary 1 teachers died from a heart attack in the classroom. You can't plan for these things but fortunately it's rare.

Work for me today so a quick look round before I go. Hope everyone has a good, and safe,  day.

Hugs to Pa Dove - gentle ones as Panda says 

Cup of tea and one of oldest fairylet's freshly made blueberry flapjacks consumed so I'm  full. Small fairylet collected, washing put on the timer for the morning and dishes washed.

I'm off to lie down - was out after tea cutting grass edges and weeding - very satisfying chopping slugs with the lawn edgers too....

Night all

It's Daniel Deronda ighten - but it's not as blue as that - it's quite purpley. The bluey purples all tend to come out very blue on my camera. Someone techie will probably know why!

The white Lychnis are lovely. I have quite a few whites Lesley - brilliant for shady areas especially if you get some acid greens and variegated foliage in with them. A favourite of mine is the white broom (Cytisus praecox Album) - I used to have one at the front gate in a previous garden and it was lovely at dusk.
