Scary when a windscreen goes Dove........back in the day my windscreens went frequently.....too speedy in my convertibles!!  And the screens would just shatter into a million pieces.  remember using a large piece of polythene stretched across the empty screen between the door hinges. wipers still worked and I remember thinking it was great fun

after a morning of rain the sun is out.  Warm and dry.  Repaired some leaky gutters on my garage.  A lot of rain is heading this way tonight.......

summer is letting us down a bit now.........

Invicta, spot  on.  Snails love all the brooms when they flower and when they start to go over.  Like you I too focus on brooms then to catch the blighters.  Ditto with pinks for the same reason

Bit fed up but always a silver lining......

hiya satrdayboy,  pot them up now.  Theyre all hardy and tough....assume you mean outdoor geraniums.  Keep them in pots until the spring and when they are showing new growth

Keep deadheading if you want to keep flowering.
