Which cosmos is this if it is?

Not yet Posy - but I found a 2" long slug 6' up my (upstairs) bedroom wall this morning (inside not outside) 


No idea how it got there - maybe the cat brought it in - will have to ask him

I'm leaving now in a minute (still feeling a bit Welsh after last night ) and the sun has come out to play  - looking forward to our day out

Sharpies here too - but I use an ultra-fine nib which allows me to write more info on the label. Manager at Peter Beales roses recommended them to me.


Keep meaning to try some black labels with white marker for border plants - I believe they don't fade in the same way as black on white.

Tony Blaah - weasel words from a weasel person! I noticed he managed to do that affected wobble / broken voice thing when he was 'apologising'. I despise him. 


I was thinking about David Kelly too. He seemed such a gentle quietly spoken man torn apart by politicians.

Morning!


Nice to see you DD - and everybody else too. Well done Pat - first steps mastered - we will expect some of your excellent botanical drawings next week!


I'm off to Helmingham Hall today with Dove, Nut, Panda and Wonky.

Weather forecast is good & the gardens look beautiful. Cake will be consumed at some stage and Wonky is bringing plants 


Best  jump in the shower then - SYL

I have grown a mix of Rubenza and the yellow cosmos for the first time this year. They are in bud. If the Rubenza open to this colour I will be well chuffed!

Glad you're ok DD - keeping busy is sometimes the only way to get through difficult times.


Chin up.

We did have more than a little bit of Roger  - and you know the sun will shine again when he needs to change his shirt on court. I maybe enjoyed that a little bit more than I should
