Thalictrum flavum I think.

Having a go at a cut flower patch...

 I'm thinking these eryngium will dry for winter decoration. They are just turning silver.

 After. It makes room for the sunflower laetiflorus coming through behind it.

I'm going to cloud prune the angelica, taking all the leaves off and leaving the seed heads.

 Philadelphus "Virginal" appears to have recovered from last years hack down. The perfume is divine.

 The climbing rose is standing up to the wet weather well. It only flowers once, but it is wonderful for two weeks. I grew this from seed as Rosa filipes, but this seedling had larger flowers with a pink blush back and flowers a week later. I will be taking hardwood cuttings off it this year if anyone would like it. It needs a big space. It is currently covering a hawthorn and is as high as the house. The main stem is thicker than my arm.

OH bought a flame thrower from lidl last week, along with several large cans of butane gas,and then spent a happy evening nuking weeds around the parking space and walls etc. Hes not  allowed near the garden as he is unable to distinguish weeds from expensive rare plants.

The rest of the week I get to garden and watch Wimbledon.

Yes, but you will need a very big pot, and use a loam based compost such as John Innes no 2

I didnt think it was prickly like mine. Mine has vicious spines.

How big is the Thalictrum with the yellow flowers?

I think it will be easier in a day or two when the flower buds open.
