They are pretty, Cinders, not looking quite so natural now, since I tied them up before the wind destroyed them! Much calmer weather today, glorious sunshine. : o )

We had sunshine this morning but not very nice now, cloudy and windy

I have had to stake mine too , I agree mine look to stiff and unnatural now!

I thought they would bend and snap, Pp, as that side of the garden seems to suffer in windy weather more than any other! You just know if I untie them, we'll have a mini tornado .. lol!

Well that just the same reason, the gusts of wind are so strong I have staked mine, one of them snapped clean off, so better to be safe than sorry;0)

We've had a mixed bag of weather today ... sunny start ... cloudy lunchtime with a few spots of rain ... shame as it was just as the village carnival procession set off! Then a lovely sunny afternoon ... but chilly. What happened to 'flaming June' ? : o ))
