Hot again now.  Had some rain this morning

 Matty, your veronicastrum likes moisture.  Could it be a little dry?  Esp if recently planted.  Nice dog 

saw my cousin and he seems happier in the knowledge he is better in the hospital than he would be at home right now.  However, he ate all the grapes I took him..... Luckily I pinched a couple on the way in .  Dont worry folks, staff gave me some biscuits so I was ok

Forget me not. My feeling is that he prob has not damaged your plants.  the fact he did this late at night should not be a cause for worry either I don't think

 chances are he wasted his time if the rain came down soon after his spraying

keep an eye on your plants though.  You can identify when he sprayed so if there is a problem you can relate to that.

Lily lover you are spot on.  I think deadheading is an under valued process.  Removing flower stems asap before they go over is the secret to long flowering.

You have your work cut out there Busy.

just back from a walk to the beach....cloudy/misty, quiet, cooler but still very warm,   gentle flat sea.  Sun looks like it will be out but gladly settle for way it is now.

impulse on line purchases earlier.  New on line supplier ...looks good but will comment  when plant arrives.  Some unusual plants.  

Off to see my stroke affected cousin visiting...and hope he is happier than he was.  It is scary just how dramatically life changing a stroke is......can affecf any one of us for no apparent reason.  

Casualties in the heat.......
