well since my last blog on the weather which provoked a few responces,we have had at least 3 days of sunshine and the last two days here in gwent were really warm,so ive managed to spend a little time in the garden where i managed to collect all the dead blooms and leaves which sadly indicates the end of summer(well almost).the consistent rain saves on water,but also makes the blooms droop and snap off,especially my double petunia and begonia,the gladioli need plenty of support too,as the water weighs them down and snaps was nice to actually sit out on our hammock and enjoy a little warmth for a change!.we are off to longleat next im hoping to get some good snaps,as well as the animals,they have beautiful gardens.hope the weathers better down there!

The weather here in the south east has actually been far better than was forecast Keith, it was meant to be rain, rain and still more rain. Instead we`ve had cooler, but not cold days with a fair amount of sun. A bit more would be nice to ripen my tomatoes though. I hope you have a lovely time at Longleat. :o)
