I took these photos today as we are going away for a few days and they will probably have gone over by the time we come home. I love the dark one and I think I will have to cut these and take them with us as I can’t wait to see how the dark one turns out.

I love glads but up here in Northumberland mine are not even in bud yet, but plenty of leaves. Hope it doesn't get too cold or I won't even see them flower this year!

Thanks Derek. The children and grandchildren are meeting us there to watch the air show and enjoy the carnival with the red arrows next Wednesday. I'm so looking forward to it.

Lets hope the winter is late arriving this year Doreen and you get a really good show from your Glads.
Thanks Bloomer. I'm sure we will. Another Great British bucket and spade holiday with the grandchildren for a few days.

They really are lovely H'bird, I'm in the same boat as also going away in the morning, I've been out with my handy twine and more stakes, hoping some of mine wait until I'm back next week before they open.
Enjoy yourself with the family....
