Afternoon all. Alternating sun and cloud here, but nice and warm.

Been round the gardens at Hardwick Hall this morning, a year or so since I last went, and they were looking wonderful. Forgot camera though.

Hope WW has a good day.

It is not Perovskia and fairly sure it is not Caryopteris [ leaves nothing like mine ], however I don't know what it is.

127, but little prospect of any more. Favourite probably An Teallach or Sgurr Alisdair, but each one has a memory, mostly good, but I did lose a friend whilst climbing in the Highlands and somehow I don't have the same interest in climbing them now, although I still love being up there.

You are catching me up Fairy, although I haven't done 1 for nearly 10 years.

Morning all. Quite cold out this morning, but going to be sunny.

Can't make up my mind whether to go for a yomp or to garden today. Usually in that situation I do nothing.

Pat don't worry about David K, he is a well known Monty hater.

Have a good day everyone.

No Verdun, I think there have been many interesting views expressed on this thread.

Verdun, I have managed to cross a S. gigantica with a Rosa glauca, do you think it will be worth growing?

Northern Lass, I think it appeared 3 times, because it was worth reading 3 times!

Looks like a lobelia, but don't know which.

I think that we often fail to appreciate that without farmers the landscape of this country would change beyond recognition and not in a good way.

We have managed to let our power supplies, the next generation of nuclear power stations will be run by the Chinese.

Our railways are mostly owned by foreign companies, please don't let out farming go the same way. In an increasingly unstable world, we must retain food security.

Jeremy Corbyn talks a lot of sense on these issues.
