I quite like the bindweed flowers too Panda & have been known to let it grow in a corner tactfully known as the "natural corner" (nettles and thistles ARE good for flutterbys aren't they?) - aka the "messy bit behind the shed".
Sorry to hear about your horse BL. Sounds like she's going to a good home where she'll be well cared for but still very hard to say goodbye. Will you be able to visit? - hope so.
Congratulations Wonky - lovely to be able to look forward to going to work again and nice to have a good chunk of summer in the garden
Today we have been mostly trimming hedges - OH cuts, I supervise and clear up - seems to work quite well. Picked today because it's a lot cooler and overcast, but still got very hot and sticky and the hedges were full of bitey gnat things. Glad it's done for this year (just a quick trim to tidy in the autumn)
Have also been watering my parched beds in the hope that it DOES rain tonight - that way everything will have had a REALLY good soaking. Getting a bit dark now so fingers crossed.
