Everything in the garden is soaking wet but the flowers are OK and they do look good with raindrops on.

Many flowers felled in inclement weather but berries on shrubs and trees are looking glorious.  Still raining out there.

Fine TY GWRS!  Not been gardening weather lately though my sons have braved the weather to do some pruning so now i have the task of getting rid!  Bristol City Council have (to save money) just reduced emptying the green bin to once a fortnight but kept the price the same!  I must try pushing down the compost a bit tighter or removing some from the bottom to use as mulch.
