I took some pics before it got too hot to go out in the garden.  By the looks of the copious blossom on the pyracantha the birds will be fine for food this autumn.  Watching Chelsea I have been chanting to the telly "Got that" repeatedly so some of my pics will look familiar.  i happened to say at my open day when my weigela was being drooled over that I would love to have a dark red one called "Bristol".  Three litre pot in the garden by my front door this morning with its lovely red flowers letting me know what it was.  It is now having a good drink as it looks like it was out in that heat yesterday.  Anonymous gifts like this always welcome!

Yes that is Thalictrum aquilegifolium the white flower.  The bought scones were very good.  It is lovely to have visitors on such a good day.  They remembered having tea in the lounge last year when it was so wet when they came!    I think they were very surprised to hear an 88 year old tell them of her plan to replant her yellow flowered rhododendron in the autumn next to her purple flowered one as they would look so good together.  But then every gardener's motto should be "Live every day as if it is your last but garden as if you will live forever"

I too am a nettle lover, Kate. Nettle tea is delicious. You can buy the dried variety if you do not have your own source.
