Morning all

Top tip from last nights talk: yellow flowers in your garden lower the metabolism....so lots of rudbeckias etc can be an effective substitute for the gym or a diet.  Who knew ??

Sorry to hear you've all been sick OL - miserable end to a lovely holiday.

Thanks Nut - its not in my garden, so won't be able to take more pics, but it was about a 2 ft mound shape.

Loved the blue too, Patsy.  It was in flower today, but not sure since when, or how long it will go on.
