#alliums are on their way! Especially after a24 hour soaking, feel like a proper garden as I was grateful for it 😉

Mine are popping too! Definitely a proper gardener when you are grateful for the rain. I was out there in my dressing gown this morning checking how full the water butts are getting!! 😂

Sad acts aren’t we @tash74 😂😂 💦 oh mine too @juliesgarden either that or they are going to be no shows, definitely planted more than I can spot so far! Oh blimey @sharonhayden we had a 24 hour deluge but tested our new drainage system, watered in the newly planted plants and filled the water butts!

Morning @juliesgarden - yes experiment worked! Not had much success growing directly in the ground so decided to grow in pots against professional advice.. now they are portable too! Hope you have a lovely Sunday 💜
