The weather here has been wet, very wet, for weeks. I exaggerate, of course, but it has certainly been more than a little damp here on the west coast of Scotland. And it's kept me out of the garden. My overgrown, weedy and messy garden. But it's not so bad today so I had a wee ramble round taking in just how much needs to be done, and to pick from the few flowers left of the summer blooms for Cathy's In A Vase On Monday. That's mainly the roses, herbs and a little clump of purple asters - the pink ones are yet to flower.
