Fairygirl, just think of all those muscles you're developing.

Is it a day Lily?

Those steaks are not really good for you dove.  Tell you what.....put them in a poly sleeve and then into a jiffy bag, first class, and post them to me.  Ill get rid of them.  I'll  do that for you

Dry, warm now.  Noticed the Heleniums I planted earlier this year are about to flower.  Not grown them before so it's with great anticipation that I wait.  

Thinking about KEF's idea about the 5 minute delay.  Spontaneity is good though isnt it?  We can apologise if it comes out wrong later.  Actually I'm always putting my it so a 5 minute delay in real life would be good for me!

Staked aconitums.....they are reasonably self-supporting but a discreet cane and string system put in now keeps them looking good till summers' end

Still have a veronicastrum in a pot to plant out.  Driving me mad where exactly to put it.......hey, Tina, don't you dare!

Fair,point Matty.  Will post some.  Always waiting for best time but mine are out but the neighbours aren't quite.  My niece will do the pics for me.

Hiya muttley, they are great cottage garden plants even though mine isn't exactly that.

Sad looking Ceonothus

I agree with nut.  I would get rid of it now.  Don't put another in that spot though. It's often an opportunity, when a plant is past it's best, to redesign the area.  Stefan, maybe think of putting some perennials there and revamp it?

Summer has arrived
