Petunia n Boots
I love the bright pink petunias this year... and the range of wellies available (these were £5 on sale at B&Q)! In Northern Ireland we get rain, wind, sun and then rain & wind -sometimes all on the same day! This can make gardening difficult. It's only August and I feel like I need to bring the petunias indoor at night already (burrr)!
