Thanks for the heads up on that

July in the garden!!

@gardeningfantic, the sun keeps poking its head out here, and then fleeing again. Getting to the point where I ache for a sustained period of nice weather. All this rain is getting seriously depressing!

I've got some Roses blooming, but they're ones that were alreeady in the garden, so no idea on names. Any Ideas?



 The yellow one smells fantastic. The others are scented, but not as strongly.

The child and I went to a NGS open day yesterday which was fun. I've written a review for them if anyone is interested!

@wintersong, I have no apples forming here either. I thought it was probably because the blossom got blown off so quickly?

I had loads during the warm spell in march, but hardly any now. Guess they didn't like the wet...

Yeah, on closer examination there did appear to rather a lot of it. In some cases it was attempting to menace other plants, so it's been pretty seriously culled.
I'm all for the allowing pretty weeds in approach, but my garden isn't established enough to pull this off yet. It just looks like I'm really lazy with the weeding!

I found some growing wild near us and took some basal cuttings. Hopefully some will take!

That's a shame, it's quite pretty!

OK, thanks very much for the help

 I have a few of these appearing. The OH seems to think it's a weed, but I've been unable to identify it. Any ideas?
