BATTLE OF THE FLOWERS After a long soggy Thunderously angry month of weather . Horrible, with intermittent spells of dreadful. Seeds in ranks like first-battle soldiers Prepared in 10cm pots (no peat ). Indifferent germination meant A late transplant to ground inmidsummer. June was too cool to ‘bust out all over‘. Early blooms struggled heroically in July. Then dawned August bright, Which brought nothing to their troubles, But underlined the lateness and slowness Like an express train on a bank holiday. The sunflowers’ big cheeky smiles Peeped at me through September. But faded fast in frosty October. 1st May 2021

The change in the weather and coming season do have an ill time for some plants.
