Right up my street Geoff, is it white with black stripes or black with white stripes? I might get extra points for artistic impression.

I quite fancy doing that rhythmic gymnastics with a big ribbon, but I can't even stand on one leg now without falling over!

Chris Packham says wasps are one of the unsung garden heroes (GW May), do you need to do anything with them?

I've only seen cabbage whites this year. Lots of bees on the pink sedum today though.

August in your garden...

Just cut back lots of perennial geraniums and alchemilla from the top of my garden, I can actually see the steps now. I need crampons really, almost came a cropper. (what actually is a cropper or is it croppa?) The ferns are huge with all this wet weather. Need to find something to fill the gaps now, preferably that the slugs don't like. Saw some nice Monarda yesterday, do slugs like them?

What a lovely brightly coloured garden you have, Geoff. Mine is looking far too pink at the moment, when really I like purples and dark reds. I might just have to visit the garden centre again.

Settling down for the athletics now. I used to be a runner, don't think I could even break into a trot now. Good job I never have to run for a bus!

Gary, you are better than the radio times! Those canoeists look quite impressive paddling in unison. Podiuming sounds so wrong!
