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 !

Up to now mine have put on a good show . This year I gave them a ''collar'' of gravel around the plants. Think that has helped - had more flowers this time,

On the olympic theme - is anyone collecting the 50ps ? Didn't know there were 29 - I've only got 8 !  Just been on royal mints website and they want £89. 50 for the set . Am I missing something or just useless at maths ????

I have one that depicts the offside rule so my talents could extend to lineswomen.

Robert Pattison sounds good to me - who was the masseuse ? Would they like to job - share?

What's the weather like in your area?

Lovely day - blue sky and everything calm after a windy day yesterday.

I was brought up by my gran who did a lot of baking -  on a memory trail now.

Morning - you are all cracking me up ! I like all the suggestlons made concerning our team. Becks , can you have a word with ''Gramps '' and ask him if I can borrow his scooter ? I could make my own way there. Where is our first venue.?

I'm a bit worried about Gary - hope he's not training to much.

Jenny - I know  the pass you are talking about - stunning scenery.

I like all this talk about cake . David - what are you baking for our team ?

Geoff - I don't like the look of our driver so have come up with an alternative form of transport. Becks, do you think you can handle one of these -

Ha ha great idea Flo ! Becks,  - , I like the look of those sarnies , we will need sustenance. The wind is really getting up here - just rescued my standard ceanothus. Pots are blowing over and everything getting a bashing .  As if they haven't suffered enough. Have to go out and move a few things to a more sheltered position.
