    We had rain, but we had more high winds than anything else, my weeping willow tree was blown over 7 times until I tied it to the fence for a while, and more poor Stocks and Holly Hocks are all bent :( But at least the rain saved me going out in the morning and watering them. :thumbup:

    Yeah, the rain was good.....

    Only it's our neighbours 'turn' to mow the lawn... been their turn for about 4 weeks now and with all the rain our lawns (front) are now like a jungle!!!!
    Think I'll have to get the strimmer out this weekend and get it done!

    i dont think we got rain over night. It didnt rain at all yesterday, but my mum bought me a fusia to see if i can keep that alive....i potted it last night and put it outside, but i didnt dare water it incase it rained, but it was dry this morning so i watered it, and its buds are opening!! :thumbup:

    it will be dead by next year no doubt though....i kill all plants by trying to look after them :(
