Hi Coops, didn't get any gardening done today but we did meet friends in the garden centre for lunch so, naturally, a few more pots of goodies made their way home - hopefully they will be planted out tomorrow. Love your card - this is one of my favourite colour combos even though I am not really a pink kinda person. The flowers are a triumph of ingenuity :) Elizabeth x
