Been a great summer so far with some scorching weather but it seems it will be all change today.....heavy rain and wind later this morning.    I guess we need it???  

already picked blueberries this morning and will nip out to pick a few runner beans before the rain comes.  Onions "sunbathing" in the veg patch have been moved into the gh for next couple of days....Supposed to be warm and dry again on Wednesday 

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Yes nanny, prune now.  You need to create short spurs.  You can prune those branches holding fruit later 

Suncream is essential but I have rarely used any.  I use a moisturiser type after shave that contains a protection against sun's rays.  Think I'm ok but nobody knows until he/she is checked out.  I remember an old neighbour who never sunbathed,,always wore a sun hat and had tbe most delicate pink/white skin.  She had several areas of skin cancer on her face.  I am nearly always with some "colour" but I guess we can't be complacent

Nice thought . Nice thread vicko  

Schizostylis flowers in October...whites, pinks, reds.  I too like to remember someone in late October but I always have lots still in flower here.  

crocus flower for very short time so cannot rely on them but daffodils will flower for a,very long time from winter to late spring according to variety.  Hyacinths too, snowdrops, 

i am sure others will post their ideas too
