Looks so exotic

You might get away with some annuals this year. Cornflowers grow quickly and are hardy. Calendula, although not sure are wild grow quick too

Which seeds?

They all look great. Love the look of yours Hopeful Herpe, really natural. It looks like you've got all their needs catered for. I'm sure they are used to a bit of dampness

I had my first attack of these last year and the plant died. It was in a fairly sunny spot. This year I tried one in a lot cooler and partially shady place and no aphids. So I don't think that that just because you've had them one year it doesn't mean they will reappear, thankfully.

Thanks for posting the photo, sounds like it's going really well although it also sounds exhausing. So have a rest when it's done

Glad you like the cat, it makes me laugh every time I see it

Pansyface, it wasn't a critiscm about the political debate here, just an observation. Yes people can be so fixed in their opinions and beliefs, it's good to have them challenged once in a while

I've just asked him aym. He says that he broke the leaves of the aloe vera so you could get to the sticky gel and then dip the fresh cutting material into it and then just plant them. I've never tried it myself

Independence Day?

Looks like the political discussion thread is here to stay on this forum. The vote didn't go the way I wanted but there we are, it's a democracy. So we all have to live with the consequences what ever they will bring. 

Found this the other day and thought it was so funny and accurate that I had to share.
