Good morning GTers! What an uncomfortable evening that was! At least the #waterlily plants living in my pond seem to be enjoying the warm water! Hope you all have a wonderful day! 😀

Well isn't that typical? Been stuck at the computer all week itching to get outside, and when I get the whole afternoon to do some gardening, the heavens open when I've just started to cut back my viburnum and pyracantha bushes! Oh well, at least I've got a second #waterlily open in my dustbin water feature! 😀

@latebloomer - Thank you Deborah! No point being negative is there? It won't achieve anything! 😀

@godfreye - Thanks Enid! Blasted weather always seems to thwart our plans! I've been cleaning my shed out instead! I'm hoping to get a potting bench installed in there before next spring! You wouldn't believe how much rubbish I've taken out already! Will take me about 10 trips to the tip to get rid of everything! 😀

@Keely - Actually Keely I'm not sure it is the right time to cut them back now! I just need to create some space so I can get behind my pond so I can rebuild my rockery! 😀

Oh ok, I do keep nibbling it a bit anyway so new plants get a bit of light lol 😀

Beautiful shot Ian. I'd just extended my hosepipe run so I could water all the way down to the woodland when the heavens opened on me. How ironic! At least the rain will save me some money on the water bill ☺
