Yes, GWRS they put a card through the letterbox so say you have been judged and thank you for entering.  It has gone gloomy and threatening to rain now but i can see some blue sky so it may miss us.

Not quite so warm this morning but the breeze has dropped.  The garden is quite damp so we must have had some rain through the night.  Forecast is for mostly dry and some sunny spells so the judges may come today.  i have deadheaded and picked up the lime leaves from next door's tree as they bright yellow and very noticeable on the dark grey drive.

I am very well GWRS.  I hope you are too.  Gardening does keep you in tiptop condition.  Today has dawned brighter, sunnier and drier than yesterday but breezy. The garden is quite wet and lots of rainwater collected so we must have had quite a bit of rain last night.It should soon dry in this breeze though.

I had to add emptying rainwater from pots this morning to my deadheading.  The garden was looking very bedraggled.  Dull and drizzly with no sunshine today so it will not be looking its best should it be judging day.  But I at last have a reserve of rainwater should we have another mini heatwave. The slugs and snails are all over the paths now too.  I removed two from my kale plants which I thought were safe being up on the picnic table!  I should have known as the snails often climb up the bungalow walls.
