Hi all.

Wet and windy again.

Hopefully get the greenhouse sorted, ready for Autumn.

Just trying to think about my favourite memory of the games, very difficult to pick one, but I am going for, the kiss between Kenny and Trott, after the mens Keirin.

What is yours?

More ID's please

1 is a Penisetum, although not sure which species.

5,6 agree

4 looks like lots of things, would need flowers to be sure. I am thinking maybe a Salvia, it looks quite Sage like.

You are of course right Dove. I have no complaints on that front!

Just to be contrary [ I usually am ], I like them for bulbs, but would not go near them for live [ not always in their case ] plants.

Poldark. More objectification of the male body, by you ladies [ ? you too Hosta ] !!

What is this plant, please?

remember that if you want to grow it, it is a half hardy annual, so plants should not go outside until after the last frost [ IMO, probably not till late June, as it is very tender ] It will die after the first frosts of Autumn.

You don't know how tempted I am Bushman.

No security cameras, unfortunately, too large an area to cover.

Always thrilled to think of others enjoying the great pleasures in Scotland's wilderness. Am grateful that I have spent so much time up there, and had the opportunity to do some of the hills.

Also very lucky to have found a Scottish lassie, who enjoys going there as often as I do, even if it is more likely to be a beach walk, rather than a mountain.

Off to Gairloch in September, so lots to look forward to.

Keep posting the pictures, perhaps I could give you a list of hills I particularly want to see again!
