I would just deadhead after the flowers die off. Then prune it down as usual next March.

We had unions, workers rights, the Shops Act, The Factories Act an Equal Rights (for women ) Act and a lot of other stuff ensuring decent working conditions before we went in the EEC. I see no reason why we will have worsening work conditions now.

Talking dogs and cats on the telly. Raining cats and dogs outside. Grass is so long on the lawn the local  cats are going to get lost. On the other hand there are all sorts of flowers showing. I managed to cut some elm out of the hedge, and some elder and shred it, but thats all I've done in the garden today.

In this area the out vote was between 60 and 70%.

I wouldn't think there is much chance of an MP being reelected if he/she totally ignores the wishes of their electorate.  I think they are waking up to the fact of who they are supposed to represent.

Fairygirl. No, apart from the infamous Stoney Cove when my niece was training,  I did all my diving in UK waters in Cornwall, either out of St Ives, Hayle, Penzance, Lamorna Cove, or off the Lizard for the Manacles. I towed someone in full kit for 200 yards in a hailstorm in Porthoustock Harbour for my Rescue course. Memorable moments are wild dolphins off St Ives, Basking sharks off  Porthcurno, and an Orca off Gurnards head.   The Runnel Stone in 30m visibility one June day was pretty spectacular too.

I like warm water too much these days. Far less gear to hump about.
