That's a very attractive colour, Paul. I saw a lovely bright pink one outside of Waitrose this pm. but I gave myself a stern talking-to and didn't give in! Couldn't justify it as I am going to put a load of mine on the compost heap after the effects of the windy, wet weather. I hope this stays upright for you.
