The weather was changeable, one minute lowering purple grey clouds with spots of rain then blue skies fluffy clouds and sunshine.   My anorak was on an off again and again.   It was windy nearly all the time, so photography was difficult.   There were lots of magnificent flowers, but the zinnias excelled.
