          joolz, don't you sit out under the parasol even if it is raining? And I thought you were tough!! :heehee:

          It's going to be a mowing day today. I'm setting myself a limit of either four hours mowing or two tanks of petrol - whichever comes first :snork:

                Planning on mowing the front postage stamp lawn, weeding the flower beds of the known weeds (I'm sure I'm probably weeding around other weeds), tidying up the roses out there, feeding roses in front and back gardens.

                Also intending on making some Hawaiian burgers for the bbq in the hopes that the rain holds off this evening...

                      I didn't do much out in the garden today, just prepared some plants for a boot sale tomorrow. While I was there I took another picture of my one and only bed, now in full bloom, with the exception of the climbers, they just don't want to grow, so a rose is going in there (up the pole) as soon as the Ipomoea and Clematis finish looking pathetic. The Clematis I will move elsewhere.

                        That's a lovely show of bright colour Sheal. Nice spacing and planting - you know, not loads of things at the back that can't see for looking,
