Newspaper instead  of toilet rolls?  Well, I have  a nice smooth bottom and I believe  it's down to using newspaper squares when I was a boy ...........

Morning folks.  First today.......well, near enough

Cooler but bright so far 

Sure the cannas have grown 6" overnight 

Late last night sent in my electricity meter readings.......put night and day figures in wrong way round though in my haste.  Seems to have thrown British gas system out.  Will have to ring now......more haste less speed

MrsT,  I think you merely cut back the flowered stems yet there were others about to flower.  This isnt a "second flush" as such.  This is quite common on a lot of plants when cut back.  A second flush doesn't happen that quickly 

Alstromeria

Slugs amd snails are partial to alstromerias here.  Pretty sure that's your cause Tanty

New lawn

Not cut it for,6 weeks?  New to me.  

If grass is growing well, it's not wet and your blades are set high a light mowing should be fine.  It's what  would do.  Regular light mowing is good

Nice to see you punkdoc.  Glad Glastonbury went well. Difficult being a "caring" person and easy for others to be judgemental. Also our own stress levels at times affect how caring we can be 

A few heavy showers today......quite a novelty.  But bright between and signs are good for this afternoon

Different look and feel today.  Rain about apparently but dry here locally. Glad I cut grass yesterday pm as well as deadheaded, tidied and planted out a large canna Durban before any rain.
