Good morning all 

Overcast here but the promise of 'Bryter Layter'   Some of you may recognise a musical allusion there. 

OH is on leave so we may head out for the coast - a flask and some sandwiches and parking up with cameras and sketchbooks somewhere with a view. 

Have a fun reunion Chicky.

It does look a bit peaky - as well as the red tinge the green is a bit pale.

I've known this happen to ivy when the plant is under stress - perhaps it

was overdue for re-potting and the nutrition in the old compost had been exhausted?

And while ivy doesn't like being too wet, it does object to being over dry.

Now it's been repotted in fresh compost, and with regular watering so that it doesn't dry out, hopefully it'll soon be a much fresher green.

Joyce - I do keep a woolly hat in the car for just such emergencies, but there was no need to put it on.  It actually felt warmer outdoors this afternoon than in the house

Hosta - for the last few days it pours down in the morning making the lawn too wet to walk on, out and then the sun comes out for the afternoon but it's still too wet underfoot to do anything much out there.

It looks as if the weather has been better down in Suffolk ... I've seen a photo of Wonky's new pergola
