Just watching pictures of the torch relay from the town-it is miserable and wet but there loads of crowds-decided not to stand in the rain but could go at 6am tomorrow?
@Geoff go, once in a lifetime etc, thanks for the tv, I quite like The Cube.
@Gary any photos?
We have sunshine
Well bully for you-it hasn't brightened up at all and it will be dark in a couple of hours.
Not sure about the morning-will sleep on it
I cannot believe the difference an hours sunshine makes to those poor flowers.
You're not helping my SAD
You said you had sunshine forecast for tomorrow, I was just getting in the mood.
So I have -am in recovery all already-that was quick-thanks
You will be pleased to hear that Indy won again-now watching shouty Cube on +1
I have eaten Saturday night pizza and looking forward to sunny Sunday
It is 5.35-I am creeping around so as to not wake any one up-going to look at a torch-should I be searching for slugs?
Am back-there were hundreds of people lining the streets at 6am on a Sunday morning-have seen the torch -and loads of police-will post some pictures later-going back to bed
I have sunshine
@Geoff I am envious, I wish I had made the effort.

Well, I can do you an Olympic Torch...
An Olympic Torch would make an original garden ornament. Perhaps a Greek athlete/athletess bearing same (or a scarecrow) according to taste and style of garden - classical or rustic.
Here a just a few from this morning around 6.15
Have turned out the first container of potatoes this morning-4 tubers cost 50p-this is the result-not a bad return?
@Gary I feel inspired to make one
@geoff great photos, what was the atmosphere like?
I have dead headed, staked and tied for hours, the mini plugs have been potted on and all is well in the world
It was 6.00 on a Sunday morning on the way out of town and really did not expect to see many people-it was all over in minutes of course but even the police wave as they go past--met police police a lot of them-so a lot of cheering and happy people-
I cannot believe that many people were out at 6am???
I will not mention the potatoes
Sorry-but I was quite pleased with them- will not mention it again
Had a bit of a disaaaaster dahilng-went to use the mower and the fuel line has a split-have ordered a replacement but will have to wait-good old e-bay
Have you seem my garden photos?
The promised all day sun did not materialise-but the weather people say by the end of the week Summer will be here
I will have a look at your pics.
It may not have been sunny all day, but I could live with this, I just need to be able to get out there.
Will the split fuel line cause a ripple effect on your work?
I think I can handle it-if only I had a back-up mower
There is washing on the line but it isn't drying
Have you now whipped the garden back into shape?
