Yes please do blow it this way.. really totally fed up with the rain now.. and not even getting GW fix... it is not good.

some good thou.. the lavender seeds i planted have started shooting.. but the maltese cross and the violas..nothing.. not enough light level i think.

in the garden the cupids darts is now toatlly flat..dunno if it will pick up.. my lavender dlowers are starting to droop to the ground also. and i have had 3 yellow aquilegas flowering non stop since start of may.. i keep dead heading they keep producing.. unusual for them.. but like a ray of sunshine out there at the moment.

My snapdragons aren't very well !!!

really.. i have bought from jerseyplants for that last 4 years and only that one problem.. and i buy loads.. for me my mum and and sis in law.. normally about £70 and only one.. so i cant say anything against them really.

Is it ever going to STOP!!!!

my day lillies have been in bud for 3 weeks now.. waiting for the sun.. think they will die in bud rate we are going..

@belfastbo i dug my foxgloves up other week as they were kissing the ground and had no flowers left on them at all..

the only things that have done well is the peas, carrots and swede plants.. they love all this rain..
