Any optimists out there?

It's like a rainforest out there.

The weeds are as high as an elephant' s eye.

There are about 40 snails on the front lawn - maybe we won't need to cut the grass.

I'm afraid to plant my dahlias out because they'll be gone in the morning

I have gazanias to plant out in full sun - now there's a laugh.

I can't go out to put something in the dustbin without slathering myself in jollop.

No point going to the garden centre because I've got too much to plant already

I could vent some more but I don't want to sound pessimistic

In London. Keen but lazy.

    I'm an optimist. 

    My new bit of hedge is watered daily.

    I can plant stuff because it's not concrete out there.

    New grass seed doing well

    Aroids looking good, 

    I haven't watered the plants in waiting for weeks.

  • I'm quite cheery because lots of people aren't going to our local GC because of the weather, which means more of the bargain reduced plants for me, lol.

    Dirty days hath September
    April June and November
    From January up to May
    The rain it raineth every day
    All the rest have thirty-one
    Without a blessed gleam of sun
    And if any of them had two-and-thirty
    They'd be just as wet and twice as dirty."
