Kate - how are we going to garden with those nails ? I am having a rest today, cake and tele and maybe a bit of a potter outside.

Exhausted after yesterdays events . All the running round I did made me feel like I was part of the Olympics!

There seems to be a problem on the ground on the bike race - 3 have fell in the triathlon.

Becks - I really have a thing for cake . It's bad. If it rains it's the first thing I reach for. Made coconut and cherry cake last - scrummy ! Tried not to think about the amount of butter that went into it. Tell Jess she has an ally.

Evening. Or is it night ? Just catching up on all the madness - only just got in so expect everyone else is tucked up in bed now but just to let you know I haven't deserted team G.W. Very busy day - if you had 3 hours to spare I would tell you.

I love the bus but prefer the Lear Jet.

I want to join Jess's club - you know what I 'm like for cake , had horrible day so I'm tucking in to egg custard . Sarnie for tea and making choccy chilli for tea tomorrow (see I do cook ) Oh - and had to remove remnants of dried up flies from venus fly trap. (That was fun )

Oh well brand new day tomorrow .

That suggests to me that they are suffering from drought - are you sure the water is getting through the fabric .

Sorry - mine are fine . They were grown from seed early on in the year and they've flowered well. Seashells and Picotee . Higgy - I also sowed the free seeds ( the white ones beginning with a B ) They have just started flowering a couple of weeks ago but think that may be because the seeds were sown late .

Morning , I see you've all been at it again ! I have been up all night designing our cheerleaders outfits and have nearly finished. I will show you the finished results in due course and I'm sure Pam will be pleased with the finished results.

I have now got 11 50ps.

In the meantime , don't forget -

I agree - it's not been a good year for them and after all they are used to a warmer climate ! Most of mine are in containers as I find they never flower as well in the ground. I too overwinter mine and take cuttings for the following year. I love the regals and have a little collection but they are never allowed out unless the weather is right - the flowers are to nice to spoil !
