Thanks- I'm going to try to find some of the other colors available but these have been growing wild for years here.
JB, The cone flowers are beautiful!
I must say I don't give a rodents patootie about the golf, but I love your yard.....*giggle*Overnight heavy rain.
So much so, that I had an e-mail from the pro shop this morning to tell me that the course is closed due to the rain last night. No golf yet on TV either, due to the rain.
It's stopped now and there's no standing water in the garden, the path I laid has a slight fall towards the lawn so no water on that. The soil's a bit sandy so drains well.

No water on the new paving over the old koi pool. Mind you there's 20 tonnes of hardcore under it so it would surprise me if there were.

Not so the patio, a good two or three inches each side, as this has a two brick high curtilage wall and steps front and back. It's dry in the middle as again, there's a fall away from the house towards the drain holes in the bottom of the walls.

It'll take a few hours to clear.
I checked out the old pump sump under the fountain, by putting a cane down the redundant hole in the pavng stone. It came up completely dry. So my efforts to keep the ground water out of it have been successful.
Not that it matters now as the new low voltage supply connects to the pump and LED lights in the small void under the middle of the fountain's plinth.
I'll drain off some of the water in the fountain later, through the removable bung near the centre.

It's all a bit of a mess out there, I'll give it a tidy up, but not until tomorrow afternoon.
