Garden fun

We are experiencing a lull in the flower garden... should we or shouldn't we invest in a polytunnel?  It would ensure that we had a continuation of (slightly out of season) flowers to tide us over these tricky four weeks, but it would be so ugly, and really, we are all about the romance...  Fewer flowers to pick also means more time to spend getting on top of all the garden work (which we love love love), and more time to enjoy lying back in deckchairs, eating cake with friends who drop by, and lounging around around on the freshly cut grass having family picnics...
