Lovely flowers.

I suppose they are growing the lemon grass as an annual, since its not frost hardy.

Maureen, sorry about the stomach bug. Please try to get some rest.
Just think Wisley Gardens and all will be well.

I hope you are feeling better now, Maureen.
Those borders look fantastic.

Didn't used to be too fussed about daylillies, but I think I'm being converted.
You not well? Hope you're ok now.

Thanks once again for all your comments. I am feeling better, but still not 100% and lacking in my usual energy. My son has it now, so that's all of us apart from my husband (so far).

Hello Maureen, looks as if your grandson enjoyed his trip to Wisley! Last time we went my youngest (then 13) took his video camera into the shrubberies to make a film with friends, they keep enjoying the gardens in their own way for years to come.
Thanks for sharing your lovely photos, we must visit again this summer, get some inspiration and plants to excite my autumn borders.
