Hi all, had a wonderful day here, absolute suntrap waiting for a taxi this morning. Had to pop to B&Q for supplies of weedkiller and some odds and sods OH wanted but when I got home I found i had an attack of sticky labels, including more salvias, bedding plants, and Clematis Chantilly 

After that embarrassment, I had a mooch around the garden to discover some wonderful surprises including flowers coming on my new iris. I'm sooooo excited!  I haven't seen them flower yet. The weather this afternoon has been wonderful pottering weather so I potted on two clematis, Ville De Lyons was bought for 6 quid and is an absolute thug! 

Cooked roast pork dinner which was amazing, my butcher deserves a medal but I guess he'd settle for my continued custom. They come miles around, I kid you not, all the surrounding villages but for me it's the end of my lane 

Now is Pimms o'clock

I used to have a problem with the predictive text but learnt to watch the black bar at the top of the screen and click on the correct prediction to save typing the entire word, sooooooooooo lazy I know but I also think it knows me well and now predicts the word clematis by the time I'm at m, I've done that many Google searches

Morning all, I'll get up in a bit, once I've thought about it a bit longer 

Sunny here, no rain forecast

Hi everyone 

Finished work for another week and now relaxing 

Good luck with Shadow DD. Our previous dog was a black lab ,they are very smart but too obedient to automatically know the right thing to do, so some kind of training sounds perfect 

Enjoy your weekend-ish break Hosta, I'm planning Sissinghurst this year if anyone's interested,  just don't know the best time to go, probably early and late summer, might also do Christopher Lloyd's garden, it's never much appealed to me but it's very near

Ideal gardens to visit would be Hidcote and Kithsgate but they would involve a night away 

Anyhow, it rained a gooden today which the garden drank heartily, like most of your gardens  can't wait to see the growth in coming week 

P. S  What's your issue Pdoc?  I've never noticed one
