That's really not too bad at all ... we've seen much worse 

As Dave says, keep watering it ... and don't cut it too short  ... the roots need protection from this hot sun ... keep the mower on a middle setting.  It'll be fine in a few weeks' time

Pat ... back to bed with you - lots of rest and keep the fluids up - get well very soon ((hugs))

Hazel hello 

Chicky ... hope both Chicklets have lovely adventures   Hope you have a lovely adventure at Kew today too ... very envious 

Fidget ... fight against the water mill ... my uncle and aunt bought and renovated a water mill ... it was absolutely wonderful ... but they didn't stay there long ... aunt found that the constant sound of running water had an unfortunate effect upon a 27 year old lady's plumbing 

Pdoc ... as you've got your gardening togs on could you pop down here and do some mowing, edging and a bit of general tidying ... we've got wall to wall sunshine

Hi Paintmeawish 

I'm not getting photos from those links ... try clicking on the camera icon and following the instructions from there.  If they don't upload try reducing the size.

Sometimes large photos Wong upload - reducing the size usually works.
