Nice to hear from you Flumpy.  Yes I love nemesia too.  We have grey skies in Bristol as well but we do need rain and none is forecast for at least the next few days.

My garden is awash with flowers and perfumes.  As the sun is warm today the lilac is particularly strong.

Cleared the daffs from two big pots and put in a hosta plant and pansies in each.  Bulbs now drying for the autumn planting session.  Good gardening weather in Bristol and forecast is same for next few days so should get lots of jobs done.  Still not warm enough to sit outside and just admire and listen to the birds!
