I can only do 20th - it is a bit of a way for me, but i just happen to be driving to the Peak District that weekend, and i can make it "on the way".  But don't want to hijack if other dates work better for others.

Great baskets Panda - look like they are overflowing already, which is how I like my baskets to look. 

Love those red flowers Lizzie - son has good taste (Or has been well trained)

We seem to have missed the rain too - been glorious all day. Made a good effort on the weeding - reacquainted myself with parts of the beds i haven't seen for ages. In my absence 3 toads had set up residence in the fallen leaves - hope they have been eating slugs for me

Our turn for rain tomorrow - got a few GH jobs to do, but then might have to resort to HW and that thing you do to flatten clothes ......

How about putting a flower bed in the way ? Its not a wall .... But i guess you would still need to check whether it is within the rules.

Just an update from me - plants growing away nicely - will try and meet up with the Camberley man in the next week or two to send them on their way..... Better write some labels for them first
