It is an alpine primula Joyce.  Thinks we have had the winter !  Glorious sunshine today and the garden is looking very summery but some leaves especially on the acers are turning  Autumn is on the way.

Took my first double dose of BP medication this morning.  Just going to have it checked.  I remember a heart specialist making me sit on a couch and shut my eyes and visualise my favourite flower before he checked my BP once and he said it worked and sent it downwards!

GWRS, doctor was not pleased at my high BP so told me to double my medication and come to the nurse tomorrow for blood tests and an ECG.  I get the results on 6th September.  So much for taking it easy this morning!!!

Sun has just come out and is drying things so may get out in the garden.  Not to do any heavy work as I have a routine health check at the surgery at four.  Bit of deadheading perhaps.

Looks like a carpet of sweet peas but it is really a wall I expect.  Well done.  I bet they smell wonderful.  Been raining in Bristol overnight so no need to water today.
