Thanks Katy. These have been growing in a pot like crazy all summer. I also have pink and orange in the garden. The bees love them. 🤍🤍 @gjones

Glad to hear that! I'm sure you've had enough rain for awhile. We're still in the hot dry heat dome. It was 37C here today. We see storms and rain clouds in the distance but they don't seem to come here🙁

Thanks. We sure have. When I dug out my blanket flower the soil was wet deep down. Won’t need to water for a while. Hope you get some rain soon. 🤞🤞👍 @gjones

Thanks Kerry. Yes they do. If I had room I would have squeezed some more pink ones in. There are some more. Quite a few. I looked out and the garden was flooded. Oh dear. More on the way. Sorry to talk about rain so much. 😞😞 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr I admire you being able to find a positive in the endless rain you’re getting 😜 any sign of better weather to come? And for a decent length of time? And no need to apologise! It must be getting to you now 😔 it’s supposed to be summer and you’re enduring all this awful weather 🥺

You may notice I changed my post. I was thinking I had not mentioned the rain to you yet. Too much ⛈⛈. We are getting this most days till the weekend. Same as last week. It is due to heat and high humidity. Unsettled weather patterns. We need a good stint of sunshine and moderate heat for our sanity. Hope the gardens are ok. Scared to look. ☔️☔️😟 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr I’m on the opposite end to you and it’s infuriating. Seems we get too much of one type of weather and it’s so destructive. Sounds like you’re in a vicious circle of heat causing rain then go again 🤪 keep remembering it won’t last & sun is on the way 😁

@hkyfvr thankfully we’ve had some today and are due a heatwave for the next couple of weeks. There’s really no middle ground 😐

Thanks Jane. It is pretty isn’t it ? My first ever Cosmos started from seed opened yesterday. A little small but a pink / orange colour is a nice change. 👍💗🧡 @pelly
