Rudbeckia goldsturm doesn't seem to run in my soil. The clump is not thickening up as fast as I would like it.

Just a Lily, woo hoo !

Asiatic lilies don't have much fragrance. The tree lilies that I have do, people smell them before they see them hiding at the back of the border. I have a pot full of longiflorum lilies that should be really good in about two weeks, the buds are starting to form. They are under the bedroom window, so I can smell them on hot summer nights. Remind me again, when does the monsoon season finish and summer start?

Blue skies and sunshine here.   More shredding to do. I'm murdering a Buddleja alternifolia  behind the pond.  That should make some space to put in some of the excess plants I've got.

Then I have to sow some more seeds for salad leaves, then weigh the sofa down, watching tennis with a nice glass of something cold and refreshing.

Have a good day folks.

Do they have much fragrance.?

 My tree  lilies are not in flower yet. They have stems  like broom handles, about five foot high. When they do flower, they pump out perfume all over the garden.

Our old lab x alsatian had all her teeth out at 12 and never looked back.  Anaesthetics have improved a lot in the 40 years since then.

The leaf axils are wrong for teasels, teasels form a little cup that holds water around the stem.
