It's finally warmed up

We have had a couple of really warm days. They have been very welcomed. The flowers in the garden this year has been most disappointing. I think it is mainly due to the weather but also most of the pots need their soil replacing despite me adding feed to the watering every week.

 The cornflower I grew from seed in the greenhouse. So I am quite pleased with that.
 The geraniums are finally in flower.
 And everything is looking a bit more colourful
 The first sweet pea was white. These are very late this year. Last year I had already picked several bunches by mid July.
 But I am pleased with the tomatoes. They are a variety with small fruit.

Yesterday afternoon it reached 30C+ in the back and a neighbours cat took advantage of the little bit of shade by the wall. Luckily she did not squash the self seeded borage plant growing in the crack between two flags.

Your flowers are beautiful. I am jealous that you are enjoying all the lovely weather. I am stuck in a hot and humid India
