For what it's worth my 2d. worth Hosta.

I spent 15 years of my medical career desperate to give up, but always took the easy way out and stayed, did not want to take a risk.

Eventually it made me ill and I had to give up, but decided I am too old to start a new career, still not wanting to take a risk I suppose.

I agree 2nd. photo is Agastache.

1st. looks like J. Anenome.

Latest photo looks like one of the Campanulas, maybe Pritchards variety.

Hot, hot, hot!

had to come in for some shade.

Have moved the Canna pots outside, now just need to decide on their positions, and dig big holes for those I remove from their pots.

They are not hardy, but should survive if treated as half hardy.

Morning all.

Beautiful day, I think it might be hot later.

Good luck for the exam takers.

Have a lovely garden visit, Dove and WW.

Afternoon all.

Turned out nice in the end.

Have been mostly resting, but did manage to cut the lawns, the garden looks so much better with that job out of the way.

Hopefully start planting the Dahlias out tomorrow and decide where the Cannas are to go. It can take me a day just moving pots around, deciding where to put them. I like to take my time over the planning.

Still a lot of other stuff in the greenhouse to go out, but if the weather is getting better, then that will be the fun bit.

Are you absolutely sure they were woodlice? I have never seen a woodlouse climb a plant, they are always skulking around in the moist stuff at the bottom of pots.

Hooray. The sun has come out.

Must try and get something done.

Get well soon to those who are still poorly.

Is it just me?!

I am the same. I can't bear to chuck plants away, even when I don't really like them, I dig them up and wander round and round trying to find somewhere to shoe horn them in.

Don't forget it can be a rampant spreader.
