Was slightly  more overcast but sunshine now here 

Bought 60 bare root wallflowers from local gc this morning..........they are just as good as my own and more comvenient.  Planted out in veg patch for a few weeks where they will bulk up quickly.  They always make large individual specimens

Whilst at gc some white cyclamen fell into my basket

Late blight tomatoes, remove what I can now?

Whatever you have, blight or not,,remove every leaf and top of the stems leaving just tomatoes.  Tomatoes will ripen much more quickly
