Evening all 

Enviously reading about your multiple garden visits, I really wanted to get to Dixter and Sissinghurst this year but there are currently a couple of problems with that, so probably will be next year although I'll be driving my soft top  by then so happy days

Work was demoralising today, I love my job but those in charge and the company itself annoy the hell out of me. They want maximum productivity and I am that good at my job but. ..those things that annoy me don't help

I left early today out of protest, if they won't bother why should I?

Night night

Supposed to be cloudy today but it's very sunny here 

Welcome back Lesley, happy anniversary Hosta, and what a sight your lawn is bizzy  but it's very neat and level and the first rain will green it up 

Did some early gardening, potting on Ecinops, salvias and planting a couple of things still in their pots 

Now torn between sunbathing and cricket  what a wonderful job our chaps are doing  (I'm of that generation that hates the Aussies because they dominated for so long )

Other news, I raized four square foot of border the other day cutting down my large Acanthus mollis. I have two more at the back of the border but the one at the front is no longer architecturally stunning and now just big bad and ugly. 

I'll have my work cut out getting rid of the roots but I want water next to the patio so something to look forward to next year

Beautiful Wendy, thanks for sharing. 

Can you tell me what variety the white daisy is by any chance please?

I need a white daisy in my life but B&Q only do a nasty frilly one and not sure if all daisies require moist soil which I don't have even when it's raining

Benevolence is rife in the older specimens of TV presenter

I wonder if this is a production issue or a personal one

Hugs for Hosta and OH. I know his pain  I watched that teaching programme last night and was equally shocked and horrified by the Chinese methods as the behaviour of UK students: the irony of that young girl saying the Chinese teacher had been rude when her own behaviour was equally rude. 

Verdun, you should be on the national open gardens scheme 

Relaxing day today, with some practice driving later.

Can we just have more smilies? 

We don't have a green with envy so we have to use the sick one 

I can also think of a surprise smilies, I'm sure there are a couple of others, we don't need a million choices but envy and surprise would be useful 

Love your garden
