Any excuse to show off your garden ;) and a fantastic one it is too!

Well we had rain this morning, but for the rest of the day it was sunny - nearly reached 10C actually.

Cheers Stephen although the garden has a LONG way to go before it's even slightly ok.

I agree it had a lot of work ahead of it, but the in the corner, the potential looks excellent.. it is streets ahead of my garden even at that point!

Caught in a brief hailstorm, today. Have to say it really stung. No damage to plants. Good job I didn't have my Syagrus 'Santa Catarina' Queen palm out in it. I'd have been tempted to say: "Hail to the Queen!" :lol:
