Nice Day - nearly...

Well, it was nearly a nice day. The morning was enough to give me hope that summer was still here. I got out and did some weeding and dead heading but it began to feel a bit like a scratched record because, before long, there were lightning showers and I was running indoors.
I cleaned up the greenhouse a bit and discovered (no, not another elephant hawk moth) a Morning Glory in full flower. While it is lovely, I won't bother with them again next year (unless they invent all-day-long-glories)! This is the first one I've seen in full flower - the others had either just flowered or were about to flower or showed no sign of flowering whenever I saw them! And they're a lot of trouble with staking and feeding etc.
I removed some flowering marigolds from the greenhouse border and planted them in gaps outside. Hubby has been complaining about the lack of anywhere to plant his French turnip seeds and has his eye on the greenhouse border. I also planted out the Ricinus from Bill as it is now hardened and was constrained in its little pot. But that was it for today.
