Feeling very pleased that I got all my pots planted up yesterday, despite the weather. I eventually got out there, with my Grandma's words ringing in my ears ("your skin doesn't leak, does it?"), and it ended up being quite a nice afternoon. So I emptied my coldframe (only to fill it again very quickly), and now have a courtyard full of petunias, marguerites, salvias, lobelia and isotoma (plus an experimental nemesia, diascia and something else with purple bell flowers, to see whether the deer go for them). So summer, and the nightly watering routine, has now officially arrived. You heard it hear first.
Happy hols to Lizzie and Liri
