i started with one white and now somehow have white , dark blue and a pale blue . Do these self seed and cross breed ? Not complaining mind you as I like the dark blue especially .

I like the clump forming foliage on this, my sis in laws plant . Lately it has thrown up nice white flower spikes . Yesterday I took some young stems with root attached and potted them up. 

If anyone can name it for thank you.

I have discovered another way to enjoy the garden . Bee watching and it's so relaxing . Haven't been on the site last two weeks as youngest is doing the Leaving Cerificate . Only one exam to go next Tuesday. Iam more stressed than she is ! Eldest now home and finished college after four years . Job hunting do fingers crossed . Today was a edging the lawns day and they look all the better for it . The mild and showery weather is causing lots of mildew and blight problems I find. Roses too need watching . I have lots of strawberries that need a day or two of sun for sweetness sake . Almost all my seedlings are now planted out thankfully just a few dozen Zinnias polar bear ice variety potted on today . 

Hopevall are well and looking forward to catching up

The real royalty has arrived with her workers . Big brother suggested some old honeycombs into the new hive as an " attractor" wow did it work , some scouts yesterday and today the main force arrived around 11am. The yard was black with the swarm . Brother is arriving now to check inside
