Tomato soup and cheese scones sounds good. Its raining here but the potatoes under the top oak are still bone dry, so I've put a soaker hose on.

Hope your mum shows some improvement soon, Verdun.

I found a new (to me) nursery on t'interweb. Norwell nurseries near Newark. Not too far for me to pick mum up and take her for the day out. They are shut all August though, so in a couple of weeks I think, for late Autumn colour. There is a garden and pond attached as well.

Identify please.

It looks like picton has purpurea hybrids as well.
