Loved the games, England won, but what was all that stuff with the tents during the closing ceremony.

Love a wee dram myself, although I am an Islay man. Half Scot myself, although not in any matters sporting, particularly rugby, where i am 100% English.

Sounds like you have all had good days, best wishes to the workers for tomorrow and may the sun shine for the gardeners.

Morning all.

Garden got a much needed soaking yesterday, today it is back to lovely sunshine. This summer has been amazing.

Today I am going to start ripping out things that I didnt like this year, starting to make spaces for autumn divisions, and maybe new purchases.

Have a lovely day.

Morning all. Grey and wet here, and I am delighted. The garden really needs it.

Congratulations Clari, the job sounds brilliant, I am sure your enthusiasm will make it a success.

Have a good day all.

Great film Panda. Love the soundtrack too. Psychedelic Furs.

Well what a waste of my time that has been. 2 hours waiting for the AA, then another 3 hours waiting at the garage.

I love doing nothing, in fact I regard myself as a bit of an expert, but somehow wasting time like this is just irritating.

In terms of wild life, the mole is winning, another 4 holes overnight.

Hope you are all having a better day than me.

Morning all, supposed to be going to supermarket, but have a shredded tyre. Dont you just hate it when cars dont work. Suppose I will  be waiting for AA for a tow.

A pickle plant would be nice Verdun.

Enjoy Carfest OL.

Have a good day everyone else.

Afternoon all, starting to get everything back in shape after my time away.

Have got a mole that is causing havoc. I might love nature, but there is a war coming.

Enjoy the rest of your afternoons eveyone.

White flowers

Yes Fg, I think it is the foliage that determines whether a white border works. At Sissinghurst, the home of one of the most famous white borders, it works because all the beds are edged by quite tall box hedges. Without these it would look very stark.

I think that white can be a problem, when mixed in with lots of other colours. I know that people say that white goes with everything, but white can shine out, drawing the eye too much, so that you only see the white, not the rest of the border.

White by itself can work, as long as you have lots of different foliage and preferably some white flowers which have a touch of another colour, eg white Cosmos.

This of course is just my opinion, based on experience in my garden.
