Spent some time clearing and pruning - including completely cutting back the jasmine on the fence at the bottom of the garden. It has gone bonkers - much bigger than I'd imagined, as my neighbours keep reminding me by hacking the flowering tips off and throwing them back. Must find something a little less rampant to replace it with. What a pity.
The dahlias are still growing slowly but buds are forming and I am letting them develop now. Quite a few that were left in the ground have come up from last year and seem to be at about the same stage as this years new plants. I bought one new one today - orange. I am just hoping the colours are not going to clash.
