G'day all.

Much cooler, and very grey today, am actually quite pleased.

Must get lawns cut, before the rain arrives.

Spent hours yesterday, looking for a solar powered battery charger, with no luck, so need to go out again today. Why do I always leave these things so late?

Have a good one.

For Lupin lovers. A tree Lupin

Meconopsis Hensol Vioet, about to flower.

Amsonia "something or other". One of my favourites at the moment

Around the garden today. Thought I would rather take pictures, than get on with the jobs I am supposed to be doing.

G'day all.

Warm and sunny again, this really is summer.

Booked tickets for RHS Chatsworth show last night. It is right on my doorstep, which is lovely.

Started taking anti Malarials at the weekend, which means holiday is very close, need to sort out extra camera batteries, and try and find a solar charger, as no electricity, in the camps.

Still got loads to do in the garden, as no one to come and look after it whilst we are gone. One of the problems of only having one neighbour, and not being on speaking terms with them.

Have a good day.

I think that the written advice, applies to Geraniums generically. Some do flower a second time, some don't.

Morning all.

Best of luck with the open gardens DD, and as for your guests, there are some very ignorant people around.

Awake with the dawn this morning, always seems to happen at this time as year. Managed to get a few hours planting in, now far to hot, so going to recline in the shade.

Have a good day.

What is this?

Evening all.

OH home from work early, so G@T in the garden, which was lovely, and I am now cooking dinner.

Have a lovely evening.

Far too hot to garden, but a lovely day for sitting and looking.

Many wallflowers are biennial, so will die after flowering, but some are perennial.

There is no reason why you could not move them.
