Does this pass for a #macro or does it need to be closer? This is my best flowering Geranium out of the 8 or 9 I've got 💜💙

@pelly I'd be happy if we could have say, two or three hours tops, of rain when we need it. But, when we get rain it bloody throws it down all darn day and into the next sometimes 😳☔☔I really shouldn't complain though as we never get floods here. Unlike some high risk areas. Did you see on the news last night there were two men (forgotten where) they were rowing down the street! 💦💦

I've had a very productive and happy day. My thrill of the day was seeing the tiniest little frog in the circle, or focal.point of the garden. I was watering at the time and saw something move, I thought it was a moth at first, but then I looked closer, the tiniest black ish Froggie was there. I was and still am, amazed that I saw such a sweet little thing. I watered around very gently and was tip toeing round the garden, mindful that I he could be somewhere/anywhere, and I didn't want to tread

That's fab that you've got a frog in the garden! 🐸

@lilybee He was so tiny though, I hope he survives. Two dogs running about isn't good but, hopefully he's tucked himself away somewhere safe. Fingers crossed 😊😊

@pelly I so agree. They're a lovely thing to see in the garden. And, because this one was so tiny, had I not been watering at the time, I'm sure I would've never seen him 🐸💚

@kez001uk It is isn't it. I was worried that the Wargrave Pink had taken over, but the clever thing about Roxanne, is she's climbing up and over the pink one. I just hope I haven't hampered the growth of it. It really spread out so well last year. I'll have to see how it goes 💙💙
