    Spent two hours this morning watering everything. Yes I know there is supposed to be a thunderstorm tomorrow night but I don't trust it to rain too

    I've just watered the newly-planted stuff. I have little faith in the forecasts here - we often don't get rain when it says we're going to.

    Had a productive time helping MIL choose and place some patio plants - cosmos and pelargoniums. 
    I have replaced my strawberries in a hanging basket with some trailing plants as not many strawberries to make it worthwhile this year. 
    My garden and I live in South Wales.

    Well at 27° maybe the heat will trigger the thunderstorms promised. 🤞🌩

    Planted 4 tall and 4 short sunflowers, I still a lot to go in. 6 cannas went into the tropical area, we lost nearly half what I had over wintering which is a big disappointment. I have tomatoes showing on all the plants so today I fed them all, also did the cannas, bananas, roses, tree ferns and aubergine plants. Cut back the lupins which gone to seed and cleared more flopping leaves from the cardoons. Along with a load of cardboard it was all mowed up and mixed into the compost

    Not much done today as drizzling most of the time. Raced round when it eased off a bit and  just deadheaded roses.

    It was supposed to be cloudy and 14 degrees here today so I thought I’d attack one of the trunks that the previous previous owners had left in the front garden. 

    It turned out to be very sunny and 19 degrees but I persevered! 

    It took me five hours. Just me and a crowbar. But I did it! 

    Only two more to go!
