    Haven't been on here for ages.  Have been busy with stuff in the house decorating etc.  Garden is loving the rain, but I am not so much.  Fed up with it now.  Everything is green, but flowers not liking the strong winds we seem to keep getting.  Ruined one of my Clematis. image 

    To be fair, everything is getting a bit overgrown as I have not been able to get out there much and tidy it all up.  Dahlias are still in the cool frame and need planting out desparately.

    Allotment is loving the rain to a point.  Warm spells of sunshine in between and we are getting a few crops coming along now, but I think they could do with some more prolonged periods of sunshine.  On the plus point, I haven't had to water much.

    Today was rubbish, lots of showers and very heavy at times.  Is this all our summer is going to be this year.  Off to Cornwall on holiday in a few weeks time, but sort of dreading that it might be just rain, rain, rain . . . . .   lets hope things improve.

    Enjoyed Hampton Court Flower show on the TV, but missing GW!!

    We all love to see Pam's amazing displays. I hope she get's nice weather. The weather here is definitely on the mend.

  • Attotment Max, I also struggled to download pictures because they took up too much memory. Eventually, I made them smaller and then they were accepted by the GW downloader.

    I just want to know why it rains and weekends and not when I'm at work image

    Amazed by everyone's tenacity! Despite the miserable weather you've all grown beautiful, beautiful plants! What an inspiration! It's about to rain here in Yorkshire but I don't care... Your pictures have made me want to go out anyhow! Happy (wet) gardening everyone!

    I'm taking advantage of the soft rain we're having here today, and all my houseplants, cacti and succulents are outside on the terrace having a shower to get rid of the dust and freshen them up image

    Sprained ankle, can't get up the garden today, think I'll hobble around the garden centre. Looking for prunella, lost mine over winter.
