Hi Michael and anyone else new.  More the merrier.

Bonkers?  Only because we seem to get on so well that we ....not me, of course.....are a tad silly at times.

Like the sound of that white garden obelixx.  I was promised some white foxgloves by my neighbour but he seems to have forgotten   I call him the foxglove king ...all of his are his own seedlings imcluding whites and a fantastic creamy variety. Will have to  strike a deal with him for white this autumn.

It's been very, very humid and hot today.  Rain threatened a few times but dry.  

Planted out my divided Imperata today imfilling gaps where it,is already growimg.  Nice soon to be red leaves behind the yellow hackonechloa.  For those of you not knowing this grass it has brilliant red leaves from mid summer onwards .....the Japanese blood grass.  Nice with hostas too

 

Pros and cons of book writing.

I started a book when I was 19 or so.  Still mean to continue with it.  I'm sure it will make a lot of money for me 

I think there is a book in most of us....?  I have written one for sentimental reasons though .......

Good luck Mike with it

Hmmm!  Very interesting.

Dampish, misty but warm.  Perfect growing conditions 

Having brekkie...porridge and blueberries plus toast.  Bit daunting though....got to go through lunch, maybe some nibbles later then dinner.  Then there is supper.  The thought of it is so exhausting.    Where do I find the time?  Just grab another piece of toast whilst I consider the issue 

Weekend's weather looks very promising ......higher temps  

 

 

 

Blue foliage

Helictotrichon too, lovely tall version of festuca.  

(I divide Elijah Blue every couple of years as the foliage colour declines over time)

I like cerinthe but it seeded so much I developed a dislike of it.  'tis a nice plant though.

Will check out that sedum Dove but, yes, there are some glaucous ones but usually low spreaders!  That Daniella sounds interesting too.
