GG, I think you meant my asters, not dahlias. Which brings me to the new name for asters which is so difficult to remember - very long , begins with an s - that is as far asI can remember. I think they will always be asters and Michaelmas daisies to me.
Another lovely day in Bristol today and forecast to last till Tuesday or Wednesday. I beam with delight every time I go up the garden and see how far advanced my plans for next spring and summer are as well at marvelling at the polyanthus, kerria etc who think it already id next spring and the way the summer flowers are just carrying on the display. Pat the story of your water supply reminds me of my sister when she lived in Edmonton in Canada where they pumped their water from the lake bordering her acres of land. Difficult to get enough for washing!
