As ever nice pictures 

been raining today , not bother as I have been in meeting all day 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Lots of dead heading and trimming back over grown bushes ect 

pleased with garden but looks ordinary when you see some of the pictures posted but I am happy with it , it is very much an outside room to me 

just dug up the stepping stone I had in lawn , filled with compost and grass seed , will be interesting to try and get flat
