All those pics of cakes .

Had nice meal out tonight.  Mine was free cos it's my birthday.   Well not exactly today but it's approaching.  

Looks like another fabulous day tomorrow 

Verdict....your new plants this year

Hmmmm, doesn't sound too good Victoria?

Fairy, I too have couple of Tiarellas that simply want to keep flowerimg.  I'm tempted to divide soon to make a front of the border group for next.  What's the betting they won't flower all summer next year then?

Durban is stunning for me Fairy.  It doesn't sound like Durban to me.  May post a pic of it if time permits

Lyn, the rusty nail treatment only works with a ton of the stuff   Old fashioned bluing agent.  Vanilla fraise is one of the varieties I thought about planting ....it should be "colourfast"

I guess your soil is acid Lyn....well, clearly it is.  The white hydrangeas should stay white.  What variety do,you have?

Latest with my mum.  She again has taken issue with visitors.  Also that the queen is coming to see her ......think she got that from her time  in Australia when the queen visited there.

I texted my brother to say he should see her.  He phoned to talk about HIM.....how busy he is, how our mum will die soon anyway, and say what a nice man he is.  True!  I think he is a sociopath.  He simply cannot see beyond himself.  He is not a busy man, lives locally and will spend every night in the pub.  

Clearly my mum is increasingly confused, frightened and tired.  Not nice to see or accept.

Very, very warm...humid....and yes this weather will last until November ......and very sunny. 

Gardengirl, an eye for a bargain clearly.  

someone mention cake?  Had no tasties all day.  (don't need your sympathy just the cake !)

Deadheaded heleniums......still loads of buds to,open out in this sunshine.

Can't grow blue  hydrangeas  here Lyn so envy you yours   Nice borders there....it looks,like you have plenty of space too

Have a pink one but will be planting a white hydrangea and possibly  one of the newer varieties too.

Established cuttings of E. Bowles Mauve - plant out now?

No Order in the border. I would pot on all,of,them now ...just one size up.....and in a few weeks protect them in a greenhouse or with fleece.

A picture would be good snowy

A bright yellow Phormium ?  Yellow Wave, cream Delight or Wings of Gold?  Evergreen, movement, easy and structural...?  

A white hydrangea in a shady spot is attractive too

White Arum lily will light up a shady spot.

A yellow leaved dogwood?   Mine are still in full bright yellow foliage and when leaves drop delightful red stems will provide colour until next spring
