Everyone is working really hard, going to be some fantastic gardens.

Kate- a bit silly asking if you were taking cuttings from the flowers but I have heard you can propagate  carnations from the pips (is that the right word?)                         

A lovely idea to have photos of previous weddings.

Glad the weddings so far have enjoyed good weather. You were lucky in Cornwall, Kate as the weather has not been too good here lately.

My daughter-in-law has a Beaufort wedding car and she did a wedding in Falmouth on Saturday. It would have been a coincidence if that was that was yours. Your flowers seem to have been a success even if some were keeping the children amused.

Will you be able to take cuttings from the flowers?

Hope you haven't sneeked your speedos in your case, Geoff. Enjoy your holiday

Poor KG. It's difficult to get into a sleep pattern after such a long journey and stop over.

@Kate The weather forcast is good for the weekend here in Cornwall so your flowers won't get soggy.

I hope you've taught your chucks how to swim,Geoff, or have provided them with water wings.

I love Gardenfantic's Cupids Dart. I must try and get some seed. Not too many summer flowering blue flowers.

I must keep up, Geoff. Thanks for the update. I'll say hello to Kate when she comes to Cornwall

I don't think you can take plants into Australia, Kate, so I hope you can convince the customs officials that your flowers aren't real.

Hi Inkadog, Interesting about peonies and ants. I often see ants on the buds but just assumed they were after greenfly. I don't know the name of my peony buts it's pink with a lovely perfume. One year the buds didn't open just turned black. maybe there were no ants that year.

Geoff, if it's not too much trouble could you please bring me back one of those big straw donkeys. I will pay for it COA.

I hope you are safely on your way now Koala Girl. Enjoy your holiday.

Lovely day here in Cornwall. Best time of the year. Everything is so fresh and green.

I found 5 self sown seedlings of Clematis Montana in the gravel near the parent plant. I'm sure if I collected seed and tried to grow it I would have no success. I potted them up and they have put on about 4 inches in a week. They were under the pink one 'Elizabeth' but there is a white one near so it will be interesting to see what colour they are. Love plants for free.

Lovely garden Wintersong.

Watched a programme last night about 'the Worlds Scariest Flights'. I hope none of you travellers saw it!!!

Geoff, my son is a manager for a tool firm and won the China prize for the best sales figures. He won a trip to San Diego two years ago and a few years before that to the Monacco Grand Prix.  He never went to university and wasn't too interested in school at the time but most of his friends that did go to uni have dead end jobs.

Still no rain here as was promised but did do some decorating. The weeds will have to carry on growing for another day. There is a thrushes nest, a flycatchers and two wrens nests in the garden so have to stay clear of some areas.
