Kate and Pam, they are gorgeous - there is a distinct lack of colour in my garden at the moment. I am very jealous. May give the dahlias another go next year.
You may have a day of rest , Kate. The builders may be attending church. Don't know what happened with the posts - very odd.
Sorry to say Pam, we have sunshine and it' s a nice day here but we are due to get our soaking later.
