What a great thread ! I'm happy drinking coffee in my garden and smelling the mock orange waft about in the occasional breeze. I'm also happy to have found this thread.

KEF - I hope you're not coining a new phrase there with 'a touch of mrs G' , lay off the evil stuff, drink coffee like me instead!

Hi all - very lazy day in hot  sticky sun. Bit of dead heading (wish someone had dead headed me earlier...careful KEF). OH did some watering for me. Got cross about penstemons disguised as foxgloves. Uncovered the veg patch & dug over (sort of), its never been used & I think it might look good with some flowers in (why grow veg when there's ASDA - steady all!). Chopped the hot lips on Verdun's advice. Now sat (with coffee) smelling mock orange.

FG & TT both right! 

TT later maybe!

may be too hot to garden but not to hot to share our photos. I'll start...

foxgloves of course.

 Alliums look good at any stage and I lover the tall purple weeds by the fence.

 Pretty in pink

 Alliums after son & OH let loose.

Yup, not very impressed at all. Not sure if disappointed or cross. I'm not much of a grow from seed or tiny plug gardener and it was hard work over winter. I've plenty of foxgloves already, although these will probably be lovely next year. They now need moving to a differnt spot. I've kept that place all year for definatley cross. And breathe...=

Bought  a gardenersworld / thompson-morgan offer last year, tended to over winter in the greenhouse,  lost  quite a lot but planted the rest out a few weeks ago. 

They are meant to be penstemons in 3varieties but they look to me like foxgloves, I've definitely not mixed them up or got them 'contaminated'.

heres a pic!

 At least I only paid £4.30 postage for 24 plug plants! I will contact Thompson-Morgan unless anyone tells me I am wrong

Can I volunteer to apply sun cream for your son TT (sorry, totally out of order!)

TT - yes totally self inflicted, went out for a quick pre dinner drink, kept nagging OH with 'one more', don't think we had any tea , home too late but daren't ask! Don't believe in the phrase 'we live and learn'.
