I am not sure if you meant my pictures, but if you did:

Deep pink is Lychnis coronaria.

Blue with fluffy seed heads is a herbaceous clematis C. integrifolia.

Morning all.

Terrible nights sleep, due to late night altercation with neighbours house sitter, who thought it ok. to invite all her teenage friends round for an all night party. A few years ago I would probably have joined them.

Congratulations to Chicklet. I love Nottingham, spent several years working there.

Hope scan goes well today LP.

Pruning a Multi Blue clematis

Now is not the time to be cutting it back, as late summer is often the time for a second flush of flowers. Follow Obelixx's instructions and prune in Spring.

Sadly Dove we didn't have time. Spent from opening time till 3pm. in the garden, and then with a long drive back to Sheffield, thought we should leave.

Morning all.

Have returned from trip to Kent.

Sissinghurst was ok., but very National Trust, if that makes sense. Great Dixter was incredible, I was concerned it would be a let down, as I have wanted to go there for so long, but it was everything I had imagined and more.

Much Kent ale consumed, although it didn't go that well with all the fresh cherries consumed.

Hope today goes ok. Dove and very sorry to hear your news Yvie. Many people with retinal detachments do get their sight back after surgery.
