HELLO FORKERS!

Storm has passed leaving legacy of extremely humid air. Dry and plants look refreshed.....as atter of fact a dahlia looked up and said "thank you" to me.  It's true 

Although hot I'm glad we don't have heat many of you are enduring.

Our local council is changing care providers for vulnerable people....disabled, elderly,,autistic.....and it's causing a lot of distress.  Many are confused, frightened and    Upset.  Can only imagine their fears but it's hardly "care" is it?

Glad I took pic of agastache last night....the lupins alongside them were the (only) casualty of the storms last night, as I expected . No probs, they have been flowerimg for weeks now. (my local GC has some womderful lupins, some of the best I've seen, but I will resist temptation to buy right now)

Actually, think the plants will love it.  Mind you I've got few delphiniums flwering for second time...they're well supported so should be ok.  Some lupins may suffer but I'm glad to cut them down now as  other  things are taking their spotlight.  

The thunder though puts us in our place.....the sheer power and vibration of that noise  makes me realise how puny I am.....well, not me but everybody else
