Very hot despite a bit of a breeze. what little rain there was last night will have evaporated very quickly.  Agastaches loving the dry and heat.

Brenda, are you referring to canna or cala lilies? 

You dont cut cannas back now.  These will grow,,according to variety, up to 9' or more.

Are you eating your home grown fruit and veg yet?

Have loads and loads and loads and loads of FUN little Fairy 

well, Fairy, the way my 21 year old niece negotiated her car insurance renewal was as good as anything I could do.    A discount of over £100 from £570 to £460.  Yep the females are pretty formidable these days.  

Anyone done any gardening today?

Ate some blueberries ....(sshhhh!  Pinched someone's raspberries as I sorted her garden.....well,,I was hungreeeeeee)

potted on newly arrived plant.  I could plant up a pretty big border with good quality plants with all the plants I have waiting to go out. loads of echinaceas, dwarf kniphofias, agastaches, salvias, cannas, dahlias, verbenas, etc.

doves taking over

Have starlings declined in numbers recently?, not too long ago they were a menace now I dont see them.

(nearby, relatively, is Paradise Park...bird breeding etc.....and occasionally an eagle would fly across and perch up high.  A deterrent?)

I've  come to enjoy the blackbird song here....no decline there.

a pair of doves call here a couple of times a year for few days at a time then move on

been morn....very hot.  Helping a friend in her garden but she had no lager.    I feel quite bitter about that but I told her "ale be back". 

Got another plant delivery in the post today. Another agastache but its likely to be more tender so cuttings taken already.  A yellow variety to prob go with kniphofia orange and vanilla popsickle.
