Everyone had a sit in the hangy thing. I spent most of the afternoon in it.... until I couldn't stand the mildewed forgetmenots and  then spent an hour pulling them out. Space now for other things in the gaps between the hemerocallis, oriental poppies, and various other stuff. I'd forgotten about the catananche. they were a bit weedy last year. Looking good this year. I found a new geranium from the seedlings, a pretty pink little thing.

I seem to have more cakes now, than I started off with this morning!!

Its gone a bit dull now, almost rain threatening.

I don't know about big slugs being harmless. I pulled an enormous black one off the angelica and half the flower head had gone!!!

what is this plant

I'd go with a gooseberry. If you leave it alone it should flower next year. It looks like it got overpruned( butchered) last year.
