Kate at least if they are pumping out the drains you won't get flooded, the noise must be annoying though.'
The weather is a lot warmer here in Cornwall and I've put the geraniums and hanging baskets out on the patio, ready to take them back in if the weather gets cold again.
My 'Bishop's Children' dahlias have appeared again. I've left them out and they have survived 3 winters outside. I cover them with a good layer of rotted horse poo. I grew them from seed and they are real stars. Lovely dark foliage and bright single flowers. I collected some seed last year so it will be interesting to see what colours they are. A lot of the leaves are greener than the parent plants so might be different.
