Since we got back from France ten days ago I have been distracted by Matters Familial and there has been no time for anything except watering the garden. It all looks a bit shabby and tired but tomorrow all that will change. Weeds will be evicted. Plants which are sagging will stand to attention. There will be deadheading, trimming and raking. And the lupins will be sent to the Great Compost Heap in the Sky. Yes - sorry about that - I need the space for dahlias. I appear to be turning into a mad dahlia lady. It must be my age.
