Oooooh I've got my first Canna flowers popping. The evening sun shines right on them and they light up like flames, beautiful 

Have a great trip EDD, lovely vessel 

Glad you have had time in your garden today BL 

And Lesley, what have you done to your foot? ! I do hope mum is alright and you manage your holiday without the wobble

Back from shopping in town plus the big GC. Felt like a pack mule again,  can't wait to be driving 

Bought some more of the same plants I already have because I have no patience to wait until I propagate but also, will need plenty more when I do. Also picked up 3 purple sedum. Always wanted this plant and have some gaps in middle garden so... 

Seeing as it's jolly hot here now, bikini time

Great work hrs WW in this day and age 

BL,  so sorry to hear about your garden,  I'm guessing the house sitting business is a dodgy one

Do you have a pointy hat and magic wand nut? 

We know this kind of thing always goes to sh*t,  especially if they are novice 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Propagated a heuchera Lime Ricky x15. I originally bought two that both struggled, one died, so I'm expecting a lot from the sole survivor. Weeded under bird feeders , next yr they go somewhere else 

Dead headed perennial Bowles Mauve, I really don't like the flowering stems at length 

And planted a group 3 Clematis to keep another group 3 happy  I'm hardly pushing the boundaries here but it makes my job so much easier at pruning times 

brown leaves on clematis

Which part of the plant? 

A lot of clematis lose leaves lower down, or sometimes a stem can get damaged if it's in amongst the plant

Afternoon all,

Overcast all day but very humid, was dripping sweat while doing housework early this morning 

After that I got outside and got a lot done

Bath time now
