Good morning Rachel! Love those little droplets! Luckily Doris just did a lot of huffing and puffing here and there's no real damage done! 😀

Good morning Rachel. Lovely leaves. I think Cumbria survived fairly unscathed for once, but I don't know as couldn't get back from Edinburgh as they closed the West Coast main line. I had to spend the night here. Every cloud... 😂

Morning Rachel. Hope you didn't have any damage from Doris yesterday. That's an amazing shot. The water droplets are just about holding on. Were you holding your breath?😊

It was a good 6 foot long Rachel @rachelbrooks .......it's now about 4 inches long. Cut it back to the level of the basket......it has some new growth so must be ok :)

Not familiar with this plant Rachel. Looks lovely. Is it a trailing plant?

I've done the same as Pauline and cut it back to the level of the basket. Hopefully I'll divide it next spring but will look to Ann @nettle for help with doing that as she had success with hers this year. 😊 @flof1952

It is a lovely unusual trailing plant @susanhumphrey333 If you look in the plant library you should see a few. Mine actually touched the floor 😀
