    This is one of my more desperate offerings - a self seeded white Lobelia, looking bedraggled.

    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

    Its too windy outside to take flower photos - they're not staying still
    Here's a bunch of dahlias I picked instead.

    Those dahlias look very good VC there is no indication of my job lot flowering, I only planted the tubers to allow them to fill out a bit, and the same with the gladioli, unfortunately was not back in time to get a photo today but hopefully tomorrow

    Today my flower of the day is a gladioli, which I was surprised to see as I thought they were all finished

    A blurred photo of a geranium in a hanging basket. Too wet and windy to venture far down the garden.
