Best foot forward Hosta?  Result xx

Morning all, been dead heading here in the rain , the garden looks different in the rain and it's a good time to realise some planting gaps 

Slugs and snails to collect later but first, house work

My Cannas are just showing buds or what look like fingernails and top leaves that are slightly phallic or is that just me? 

Evening all, working weekend finished and an arrangement with my boss for a finish time that suits me in the future. It will mean I work ten hr shifts but no one else can do it as well 

Sad end to the weekend, my son's friend came to stay but went home after being rude. I was flabbergasted and would never expect my sons to ever complain like they did 

Still, no one died, mainly because my husband kept a cool head, just need to fix my son's hurt feelings 

Hope Clari is okay, I really don't like commenting on personal stuff but since she put It out there. ..

Gonna look round my garden and find something to relax to

Okay, after calming down, evening all

Sunny here, jealous of Pdoc's trip but he can keep the weather 

Oh WW, well done!  What a lovely experience and sense of community you have 

Achy feet tonight, hot day, one shift left tomorrow

Clari, you're better than that 

Don't ever let someone treat you like sh*t

Does Pimms have anything to do with your lost threads MrsG?

That Lobelia will need a moist site mrsG , it died In my dustbowl garden 

And the rest of those plants look lovely, I especially like the cosmos, it's huge compared to mine 

Poor Lesley, I wish we had rain in the south, it's dry as a bone down here, any rain we do get is never enough, I spend a lot of day lugging a watering can around the place 

Guess it's my own fault for planting too many new things this year, but it's rewarding, got my Clematis Warszawska nike flowering now, such a pretty thing
