Lovely 😊 Only one of mine had a flower spike - think they didn’t like the rain

This is in the jungly part of my garden so it's pretty well protected whilst it's growing. Sorry to hear about yours 😢 @sharonhayden

I got a box from Sainsbury’s, also a chocolate cosmos at the same time. It’s in a pot and doing really well, it has a flower bud on it. Still inside, though I stand it outside most days. Not today though as we have 40mph winds!

It was ok Sue, I'm ready to retire, but I can't for another 15 months, I just get so tired. Were both off the week after next though and we're taking Alicia ( the 13 old granddaughter) to London for a couple of days, I'm really looking forward to that @susanhumphrey333 👍👍

That's our politicians fault, they keep moving the goalposts. They hope we will keel over before reaching retirement age. I could go on, but won't 😡 That will be lovely Jane, something to look forward to ☺️

I couldn't agree more Sue, and no it's the wrong platform for this conversation, but we're really looking forward to London, we're giving Alicia free reign to do what she wants. A lovely couple of days spoiling her, can't wait @susanhumphrey333 😍😍
