Very mixed day here in Dublin. Mild enough but intermittent showers. Delighted that Steve finally got the grass cut in between. And the babies called over too. They had their fun out in the garden and it rained again (heavily) just as they had left. And during their time here, my grandsons watered all my planters from the water butt. 

I had a couple of bald patches in the lawn so I re-sowed today. It rained afterwards, but the soil is just still so dry.  I'm sure it'll be fine though. Grass seed is so reliable. Roses are all tied in and tidied up. Everything in the greenhouse got a good soak too, and the peaches are looking very promising for another year.

My Carex oshimensis 'Evergold' was looking lovely at sunset, and I swear to God that my Hostas have grown at least 6 inches in the last 24hrs.

Beautiful display of Hostas - and not a slug in sight!

Huge growth in the last few days and your hostas are looking great. I love the urn, lovely decoration and nicely weathered.
