Happy Anniversary Lily 

In the middle of a raging thunderstorm here - lots of flashes, lots of noise and lots of rain.  Forecast says it will have blown through here by early afternoon, so hoping i can get outside to plant up my pots then.

might have to search myself out a heliotrope.

Lizzie - hope your garden party goes well
