Petunias[Confett,]in the seed room.2011.

A poor start to this morning.Rain and a touch of wind have returned.Though not cold,still the rain spoils outdoor work in the garden,for the first half of the day,according the weather report.No plans for today except to take notes,and on return,if all goes to all,then some time will be spent inside the tunnel.The weekend plans will be to spend time in the outer beds close to the arches in the lower section of the main garden.Tubs need some work done on them there.Plans with those this year will be to extend the flower section with them.If all goes well and the rain holds off,those are my plans.I will check updates on the weather throughout the day and hope for the best on.Done a check in the seed room late last night and all is going to plan,there.
