Olympics

I read that several (jealous?) countries are questioning why GB are doing so well at the Olympics some even suggesting we are cheating.


well, we have openly doubted the Russians and the Chinese; we also question how such a small nation such as Jamaica can keep winning the sprints.  


anyway, who cares?  Our athletes are clean and have done well through sheer hard work ...


look at our rugby team....unbeaten now for quite some time.   Our cricket team......we are pretty much at the top.   We have world champion boxers. No wonder the world is amazed ar what we can do 


and we will  do it too economically.

My white hydrangea has been flowering for a few weeks now...still looking good so disagree with Welshonion.  If planted in suitable soil, aspect and situation white hydrangeas can look attractive for a reasonably long time

Papi jo, 


I find that early pinching produces more branches and I pinch out again later.  I find Amistad flowers well from fairly low therefore.


however, a plant in front ..I have a large hakon  grass in one area as a foreground.  A yellow dahlia in another, etc.


will post some salvia pics Newb 

What is your weather like?

light drizzle overnight  and a misty morning but feeling warm.  Sun now coming out and feeling hot.  Looks like a good afternoon but, as GD said, strong winds and heavy rain set for tomorrow

I still think though it is sun scorch.  Sun has been very hot and even a couple of hours of it would damage hydrangea blooms
