Munzie, sounds like you are getting the beginnings of mould from the overhead tree.  (aphids on tree leaves depositing on your camelia)  Is it a sycamore, by any chance?  In a sunnier position is not ideal.

Any chance of moving it away from the tree and maybe to a shadier spot?

Hello FORKERS bit damp now but not too bad today.

Got a load of signatures on a local petition that will be posted tomorrow.

Is it the same where you are, but planning applications for supermarkets, new towns, houses,businesses etc are rife in Cornwall now.?  Ok, we were a bit "sleepy" down here in a way but we like the slower pace of life generally and don't want the natural beauty built on 

Didnt get any planting done today ...I guess it will all have to wait a day or two or three

Halloween tonight.  I'm hoping to get a fair bit of,pocket money tonight   If they dont give me any money I will take their gates
