Morning all.

Very humid here, thunder storm weather.

In the SM. at 7, so now have the rest of the day for artistry....... well planting out stuff from the greenhouse, in an artistic way as possible.

Keep sharing Kitty, it always make you feel better.

I agree Hosta. I am torn between something I would like, or something that I think is the best design and planting.

Overall, like you, I have really enjoyed the show gardens.

Sarah Eberle has also impressed me, now having won a gold medal, in every category. This year winning for an indoor display, and best garden, in the artisan category.

Granite block, represents nature ready to re-colonise the world, after a nuclear holocaust. I think it is very clever, but maybe I am pretentious.

I also love the symbolism in the modern slavery garden.

Cleve West, for the peoples award.

Sp. Hosta. I think it is Teasel.!

Being a pedant, I know.

Still loving all of it, except for the repeats.

Poppy seeds or weeds?

Pictures 1 and 2 are definitely California poppies.

Evening all.

Dull and wet here today.

Weeding pots in the greenhouse, the Dahlias are nearly large enough to be planted out, so going to be very busy soon.

Still struggling to load photos, and, find the site often freezes, and refuses to let me write. Will it ever be sorted?

Has anyone seen Verdun, I know he has blocked me, but I hope he is ok.

So rare to have beauty, and brains. Quite common to have neither, as my OH says about me.

fairly certain that 3 is Eucomis, I am sure it is not a Canna. I plant the bulbs in early Spring.

I think that the grass in 4, is Uncina rubra.
