Looking splendid, Tigerburnie. What sort of size do your romanesco grow to? I've sown some in modules and they've all germinated, so they will be going into a bed once they're big enough. I love romanesco but I always think of it as Martian cauliflower as it looks so unworldly.

Last year they were around the size of a grape fruit, not massive, but enough for the two of us for a meal, very tasty and I hate cauliflower!!

A fine rhododendron - red often buggers up the autofocus but I didn't realise until it had gone dark.
