Gertie I can see you too.  Don't think you can offend anyone on the forum....I try darn hard to but it doesn't seem to work! 

Your polytunnels must smell like breweries Hosta 

thought the Tom Jones show last nght was excellent....just had to contribute somethng.  And the Rickshaw Challenge...it past my door .....made me want to give.  Tonight?  There will be something that draws me too.  Expensive time then but the suffering that many children courageously endure is emotional. 

Fairy, I like thise there choccies too .....(shhh!  I pinched some lindt chocs today;hope nobody notices )

You mean panicum heavy metal Elizabeth, do you?, but that grass is a pennisetum. 

Gigantea is one of my summer favourites.....a feature here from June (flowers early here) right through to early autumn.  The Golden Oat grass outshines most everything at its peak

and the blue grass elymus magellanicus flowers well for me too but if it didn't those blue leaves are its main attraction 

Just a suggestion...

I usually spray about now to help prevent peach leaf curl next spring.....did mine today.   Another in early spring just before leaves open.  I still have bordeaux mixture which is very effective.

However, bordeaux mixture is now on the banned list ....Soon we will have no pest or disease controls .......so I don't know what, if any, alternative sprays exist.!

Lorna, glyphosate works very well on bindweed.  It does kill it but it needs to be applied in the growing season, in dry comditions....both at the time of application and for the next 5 hours or so.

Elizabeth, getting into grasses!  Well worth growing them.  I have several large miscanthus currently providing flowers, foliage and structure.  You can have flowers from grasses from spring to late autumn.  

Kathy, made me jump there.  Thought you were referring to me with your last sentence

Convolvulous cneorum is delightful.  Silvery shiny foliage and pure white velvety flowers.  Mounding and cascading. slightly tender in cold areas but perfect all summer long.  

It's my birthday

Breezy but blue sky and sun.  Warm out of the wind

plants ordered online and first time with this supplier.  The order was dispatched almost immediately but the courier will take up to 5 days.....??  ...that I didn't know about until info about delivery was issued.  Should have suspected something as delivery cost is pretty low.

as long as my plant arrives in good condition all is fine....we'll see 

potted daffodil bulbs planted out and a little more cutting back.
