Yet again it's pouring down here in sunny Kent, like it seems to have been for weeks, and I'm having to potter around the forum trying to stave off boredom for a while whilst my garden and allotment disappear further under water.
It started me wondering about which plants are loving all this wet. In my little patch Foxgloves have romped away and had it not been for the wind would have been perfect, the Hydrangea (as it's name suggests) is looking the best it's done for a few years, the Verbascums have coped admirably and continued to flower regardless, two Geums (Mrs J Bradshaw and Totally Tangerine) have masses more flowers than before and the Verbena Bonariensis plants stand upright and tall like collective purple middle fingers to the grey sky above.
If we get our heads together we can work out which plants love all this rain, if not I'll meet you round the back and we can use that wood, which was supposed to be at the allotment today, to start building an ark.
What's doing well where you are?
