Rain in the northwest west and plenty of it, got soaked yesterday when I got out of tesco's , so glad the garden is getting a good water and it's filling my water butt too, going to Hebden Bdridge tomorrow to a classic car rally, the weather man said its dry on Sunday (I hope) , keep you all posted

Thanks Marion for your advise, I will do that now, sounds like your insurance won't take too long, our insurance didn't take long and that's when the floods where going on, keeping my fingers crossed for you

Marion your flowers are looking gorgeous, so glad to hear the work to your conservatory is going to be done soon, Marion, I want to pick your brains again 

Two of my tomatoe plants have started flowering, did you say I need to brush the flowers at this stage? And am I right in thinking I've to feed them tomato feed now? .

Hi Marion, sorry to see you've been in the wars, can any of your family give you a hand ?, I was ripping ivy off my tree today, they seem to off traveled from up our street, I hate ivy , just taken some photos as promised Marion.


The Aster are lovely pastel colours, they've not all opened yet
