Today I received a well-wrapped parcel containing several Campanula ‘alba’ kindly sent from Scottish . . . many thanks Angie!

Here are some photos from the garden today, but the sun is shining now, so I should have waited . . .

Thanks Bloomer. We haven't had all that much sunshine, but it has been pleasantly mild, though cloudy. Better than fog - hope it clears soon!
