 Newly planted sunny border, next year all the individual plants will have merged together, I hope

 I'm loving the physocarpus alongside this climbing rose, the buds are striped with orange

You can but most people don't because you will hack it instead of clip nicely

My youngest son and OH live on what they cook themselves. I had twenty years of doing that job for my family, mostly cooking from scratch to feed my house full of men. I taught my two oldest to cook from scratch as i wanted to give their OHs the gift of a man who knew his way round the kitchen.

I hated it so much and the last 15yrs I've been eating different to them. Once a month-ish we do a special meal for each other, and usually something we are both eating on a sunday. but it's my choice, no pressure, no hungry faces waiting in line. They don't mind and it teaches the youngest to get his own 

Gorgeous sunny day here after mid-day thunderstorm rolled past. Feeling tired again today, working the weekend

What a tremendous effort sir! Good luck keeping it at bay.

I've noticed some in a garden at the end of the road, about 200yrds from my front door. The current residents have no pride in their property and none of the neighbours between them and me can be described as keen gardeners. I don't know how it travels but I reckon it's only a matter of time
