    Iโ€™m thinking of growing a sunflower in memory of anyone who sadly didnโ€™t make it through the virus….

    Thing is I have very little knowledge of doing so, is it to late in the year to early, Iโ€™ve got a pot, some compost no seed or flower yet..

    would anyone else be interested and maybe have updates on our growing experience๐ŸŒป.

    Thanks Lou๐Ÿ‘, I think the giant sunflowers seemed to stop growing, however Mrs ajn says no, also looking thicker too, hopefully more sun soon..

    And, since you asked, here’s a snap of Tilly-dog, catching the rays yesterday p.m.

    So glad you liked the Tilly snap. Will try to do more. Also posted some plants pix but they seem to have gone wonky. Will amend and try again. ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ˜•

    @joss Mate, sorry to bother but I tried to post some snaps here and they have gone wonky. (despite racking them down in size). It sez “awaiting moderation” but please don’t bother, just kill the post. I will go back into them and fix whatever problem is there. Tried to do the “email mod’s” bit but it wouldn’t have it. Thus, if the task does not fall to you, could you please pass on the msg to whoever it does. Cheers.

    Sunflower buds developing but still no actual blooms. However, @Lou, you were interested in the “tree” fuchsias so here’s what they look like. Just about to open flowers and are about 2′ 6″ tall.

    Now, since the thread seems to be becoming a general gardening thing, here’s some snaps of our roses which are lovely right now:

    OK, take 2. Here’s the Tree Fuchsia I mentioned. Just about to bloom and reckon it’ll be a blaze of colour when it does. Snaps when it does. It’s about 2’6″ tall.

    Cheers, folks. Tilly is a complete camera-tart. Got lucky with the “catching-rays” snap.What with the very bright sun and with her being so dark, it is nearly impossible to get a decent snap. Can’t be arsed to get out and set up reflectors and all the professional gear.

    Will be busy this afternoon; bright solid sunshine, 25C+ temperature. Watering can will be put to extensive use!

    No prob’s, Joss. Sorry to have involved you in the first place. All sorted although I see someone did sort my original post which was well wonky – one pic nested inside another. Would have been better to kill it.

    BTW, Beeb weather forecast says it’ll be less humid for you today. Hope they’re right.

    Weather bird said it should be low humidity overnight, so you might get a decent night’s kip! ๐Ÿ’ค

    Can’t say what type they are, aj. Any variety is good. Some, however, have to be wrapped or come in for the winter or they turn into sticks!
