Hosts question

Posted: 29/07/2015 at 09:52

Dead heading of so many plants is a good idea, but I so rarely seem to find the time, even though I can spend hours sitting and staring into space. Just lazy I suppose. It is on my list today, but not started yet,

Morning all. Blue sky here as well.

Just tidying up before cleaner arrives! Still no idea why I do that.

A bit of dead heading today, then cut the lawns.

Have a lovely holiday Lesley, and have a good day everyone else.

Identity help please

Pritchards variety is blue, which is the one in the picture. Loddon Anna is pink.

Its definitely not S. gigantea, although not sure what it is.

Bloody British summer. Cold and wet all day here.

Like Hostafan, I think PBRs rights are ok, people are not going to spend time breeding new cultivars, if there is no profit in it.

Have you tried P. Monarchs Velvet? I love the colour.

Very unusual plant

Passionate. I am surprised yours has not died. They are supposed to die after flowering.

Visit to Bressingham Gardens

Fantastic pictures, everyone, it looks like a great garden.

I am looking forward to Great Dixter and Sissinghurst next month, my birthday present from OH.

Hostafan, control your urges, although now you mention it, a beautiful Brazilian does sound good.

Dove, extend that bed.

I grow Garnet, Blackbird and a lovely blue / pink one, whose name escapes me.

The Arctic

1,2,3. Polar Bears. 2 females eating a Beluga whale carcass. This was the second encounter I had, the first being a mother and cub on an iceberg, although too far away for good pictures.

4. you will have to take my word for this, but it is a pod of 11 Beluga whales. Beautiful pure white creatures, virtually hunted to extinction. The scientists I was with are trying to study these creatures, although this year it was hard, on account of less of the sea ice having melted than usual.

5,6. General scenery. Hope they show the pristine beauty of the place. We must protect such places.
