Morning Geoff its a lovely morn here Im not listening to our local radio forecast they were wrong again for yesterday.

My OH has decided to go for a repair as was planned for today on his bridge and then seek further advice.The helpline were not happy with the advice he was given.

Wilt with heat ha that is so not fair.. I was looking at forecast for here next week and they are saying a high of 13c

Kate Thats good to hear about the scabious if the plant doesnt survive then maybe it will self seed I have the Macedonica as well its fantastic. I like a few big statement plants. I have a Crambe in the front garden which is a real talking point and in the back I have Euphorbia Fireglow which has taken over a corner 4ft of it anyway its striking at the moment.

Geoff. Am I not the only one that is made to feel a bit odd because they do there garden Im the only one in our road apart from my old neighbour who is lovely he loves when I go in and give him a hand or go with him to a garden centre. My only worry is the visitors I had at the weekend were worse than me with gardening and to me came across as being a bit odd.. So How do we come across to our non gardening neighbours Do you care.. I dont think I do

You'd think so I think his dentist is trying it on he is nhs but the dentist is saying it wont be covered. I phoned the nhs helpline and they say it can be, maybe, so not really any the wiser A footie injury from about 20yrs back knocked out all his front top teeth!

Dean I'd say definitely length ways

Anyone know for sure if the scabious beajoulais bonnets is hardy one site says yes one says no!

My OH had a visit to dentist and had bad news his bridge will need replaced at a cost of £3500  so spag bol needed to be upgraded slightly to help start trying to cheer him up

Lottie Ive had a lovely afternoon I filled the wheel barrow from the border I chickened out throwing the lupin but the blue geranium is gone and in its place a white scabious, a pink scabious(beajoulais bonnets) and mixed verbascum all that Ive grown from seed. Ive cut the grass so all in all a very productive afternoon.

Ive changed my mind from spag bol its now mock moussaka

Ive decided to do away with lupins in my border although I really like them they are over now and look very straggly. Im going to be brutal and take out a hardy blue geranium as well. I started last night but was forced in with the midges. Im thinking compact plants have to be hardy(highlands, Scotland) any suggestions.One idea I had was of  sweet williams for lots of colour. I have a cottage garden Id say with neat grass and edging.
