    After the heat yesterday and itís supposed to be hotter today a little some thing to cool off, Arum Lilies, the ones with spotty leaves which I believe are not hardy. I grow them in pots, l love their elegance.

    Nice to see you enjoying the beach VC
    The big heels were not really for someone of your age, if you had toppled off them you could have injured your self
    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

    Oh and the house leeks, look nice plants but do you have any problems with them as one of their uses was to keep a certain type of woman away

    I will kick off today with Lychnis. This plant is at its best in the evening when the blooms are luminous and set off beautifully by the silver foliage. Fussy thing though and will only grow where it wants to by self seeding.

    I love them ^^^ they spread well in my garden too.

    Mine today is a clematis- one of the large flowered varieties. I lost the name years ago.
    This plant never gives hundreds of flowers but it is pretty.

    Your photos are inspiring me to try to grow the same as you next year! used to have lots of Lychnis but they're disappeared.
