Loving all the pics on here, especially like the Mrs Bradshaw with the silver behind it.

My c.president isn't flowering yet and I've lost a white snow which is on the other side of the arch.

FB, your gifted aquilegias are in flower, I'll take some photos soon.

I'm obsessed with these blue poppies so here they are again

hi all, been AWOL again for a few days, back now. I've not caught up so hope all is well. Hoping to get in the garden today - tidying up only, strictly no GC , no rearranging, no planning! Must must must stick to a plan...but so many distractions from the mundane...does the path really need weeding and the empty pots stacking out of sight when I could cut a new shape for the border or get some cannas from the GC

Whoops! As a direct consequence of reading this thread (and within minutes) I am now waiting for delivery of Christopher Lloyd's Colour for adventurous gardeners from Amazon!  An older used copy,not sure which edition (it has a poppy on the front cover) only £2.80. Almost got carried away but I'll wait and see the condition, size, etc before ordering others
