              Lagerstroemia is only just starting to bud up in my garden.
              Like the plumeria, I've ordered some seeds, going to have another go maybe I can control the RSM better now.

                I chopped (or lobbed??:biggrin:) one of the main stems this year and did cuttings. In the good old days, I'd have been happy to send you them :noidea: I've got Acnistus planted everywhere now :biggrin: It won't be long before the suspense is over and they flower!

                      I'm amazed at how well some plants have kept going in my London garden, despite the long drought and great heat - and me not doing that much watering. There are gaps now where plants have gone over early of course, but let's focus on the positives. Self-seeded nicotiana:
                      P7271067.JPG
                      The flowers on this St Swithun rose (a David Austin one) are actually better this year than I ever recall them being - normally they are very prone to water damage, ironic as St Swithun is a sort of patron saint of rain:

                      Kniphofia Lemon popsicle also likes the dry weather:

                          I've just popped down the garden to pick some plums. The dozens of wasps buzzing around me weren't interested in me as there was plenty for all. I left the over ripe ones for them. :) They're ripening very quickly in this weather.

                          I picked half a bowl yesterday and reckon another bowl this size each day until around Monday. After that I may be fighting the wasps.

                          They look golden when rinsed and wiped so I di that with the one on top.
