Sorry for not being around a great deal recently. My husband has been taking down our chimney, single handed. Good safe scaffolding but even so, I was on tenderhooks all the time - he is 76. All done now and he has felted and retiled. The scaffolding came down yesterday much to my relief.

I grew white cornflowers this year - they did not last long as they ended up parched. All spare washing up water goes on my big shrubs!

I think all flowers have suffered this year except my Campsis which must love the heat.

Sounds like you have hubby well trained, Carole! 😁 A fine capture of the cornflowers, lack of water falling out the sky hasn't helped! 👍🏻

Beautiful capture Carole, normally I grow these every year. But this year I didnít, but wish I had
Lovely image Carole, it has been a challenging summer for us gardeners with this crazy weather.
Glad your hubby has finished his alterations, he did well to complete the task single handed.
