    Such lovely foto’s. I like everything you are showing. I especially like the columbines, digitalis and the yellow choriopsis-like blooms as well, but what I am really over the moon with, are your hosta’s — Oh me, oh my. How is your Hakonechloa, BTW.

    Thanks all. I am busy doing "garden editing"; thinning out my perennial beds. They are way too dense. Unfortunately I am having to throw all the divisions onto our compost heap, due to the invasive jumping worms. But, I have a friend coming this week who will take plants. We plan to soak all the soil off the roots & repot in fresh putting soil. Seems like a lot of work to me, but she is game, so that is the plan.

    Sjoerd, thanks re your comments. Ironically I just moved that chartreuse hosta! It is recovering under a beach umbrella. Should I give it a MaiTai?

    The hakonechloa is going like gang busters. I'm hoping my friend will take some of it this week. I'll post a photo anon when it's not in full sun.

    Chortle. Cayu, you just won’t do.
    That will be a lucky person who gets a division of your Japanese grass.

    My, what beauties you have! I really like the peonies, and the iris, all of them. Oh, and the foxgloves in many colours. The columbines! And all the rest too. Thanks for showing them.

    Here's the hakone grass. I do hope my friend takes some of it PXL_20220605_222340780.MP_compress95.jpg

    The next set are peonies.... Yes it is glorious peony time now. I just wish it would last longer!!

    They can look quite blowsy, can't they? Like an over- ripe.....( I'll let your imagination fill in the rest).

    Oh! Here's that chartreuse hosta that I just moved. Poor thing. He'll recover.
    PXL_20220605_184325368.MP_compress33.jpg I really recommend the beach umbrella treatment.

    You're taking very good care of your plants. Beach umbralls and all. Lovely peony-show. Thanks for that.

    What remarkable peony's you have. I do not recall you ever showing your collection. I really like the single, open ones.
    Your pic featuring the Hakone grass is a splendid one with all the interesting elements in the composition. Cor, you have a nice place there. Chapeau for what you have accomplished there.
    I like the umbrella employment. That was using the old nut, wasn’t it. I use parasols also to shade me when I am working on my knees and to shade the beehives during a heatwave. I have never thought of using one to rehabilitate a plant. Scratching my head….actually I do not normally transplant at this time of year though.

    Gorgeous Pacnor. So you employ the umbrella too?

    Do you ever pick your peonies while they are still in bud, put them in your fridge (sans water), then bring them out when all the other peony blossoms have gone by? If you put them in water, the buds will open. Extends the enjoyment.
