All sounding good there MrsG.
Been busy .....at times...in the garden. Completing different borders day by day. Got another helenium in place, salvia uliginosa, a couple of cannas already with huge leaves, etc., but disappointment. My echinacea Tiki Torch has been eaten by slugs. My fault, I always...ALWAYS.....delay planting new echinaceas until they fill a 3 litre pot. This time I was impatient. Anyway, it's saved for next year now. Potted up and will stop it doing anything but grow this year.
Stumped for plantIng behind a group of rudbekia goldsturn. Something to put between Cornus aurea and rudbekias and helenium Moreheim Beauty to the side. Actea Brunette flanks other side. Got purple dahlia, salvia Guaranjuato, or leucanthemum Broadway Lights??? Currently a large wallflower is in place but it's demise is imminent
Picked up a few plants from nearby nursery to add to my burgeoning collection of unplanted plants in pots.
Showers locally....rained heavily in pemzance, 8 miles away, but here it's been sunny, very warm and dry. Hope everyone enjoyed his/her day
