Drizzle in the air up the garden today which sent me in for my camera when I saw raindrops on the flowers and foliage. Lovely picture Flumpy. My friend did five hours work in the potager yesterday so all neat and tidy up there.
I will soon be eating my own new potatoes and broad beans. I found one other Star of Bethlehem out in one of the borders so they are not all in the big pot. I am hoping they will self seed.
No damage caused by the incessant rain yesterday and glorious colours in the garden today.
A bud has appeared on my new little magnolia tree called "Yellow River".How exciting is that on a day when it did not look as if the rain would ever stop?
We exceeded 12 hours nonstop rain but dry now so i took two pics of my one Star of Bethlehem whichhas flowered. I am sure I bought more than one bulb to plant in the autumn last year!
It has not stopped raining in Bristol all morning and still raining. The roads and pavements are dire. Puddles have appeared in places in my drive which have never been there before.

Still raining and duckpond still outside the kitchen. Sigh!!!
Such a wet day. There is a duck pond outside my kitchen. Thank goodness for conservatories but I do need to clean windows as soon as the weather is better.
I thought that too Joyce. as they are coloured right from emerging I imagined them shivering as they emerged one of those cold mornings and saying to each other "Oh drat, We've missed the summer!"
I am used to my self seeding aquilegias offering me a choice of flower colour ranging from white to deep purple and all shades of blue or pink in between but this one is offering a variegated leaf cultivar.
