You're not in the garden yet then
heh heh heh...not yet...still drinking tea and looking at photos......sunny....OH says she feels more like gardening than DIY so any minute now...... although it's almost lunchtime.....
berlandieri lyrata-smells like bittersweet chocolate. have some more than tentative plans for the garden but hard to get into autumn redo mode when temps are still in the 90's. great dahlias, i like messing with them from seed-bishop will not grow here-or at least not for me.
There are a few carmine red , no yellow, but a lot of terracotta in my batch. I think they must be mainly off bishop of oxford.
Not very mixed. I think they will look better as single colour groups,so I will be labelling and then growing on next year.
I have no yellow either. Mine are labelled up, so that I can place them better next year.
Well - I made it into the garden and worked for a few hours. Photos tomorrow. Maybe.
Just planted up a couple of Autumn pots as the Summer plants were passed their best
Imperata Cylindrica Rubra 'Red Baron', Heathers Bonnie and Theresa and a few pansies.
Everything still looking good out there ..... don't you just love an Indian Summer Here are some of my "cage" ....
OH has just scalped the grass
Beautiful pics Chicky, thank you for sharing.
It's a man thing chicky
The cage is looking great. You can forgive Mr Chicky his grass rumping when he makes such lovely metalwork
kudos to chicky
Chicky, your borders look lovely in the soft autumn sunlight
Started work on increasing the number of veg beds ready for winter planting, its hard work getting through this grass though.. I also need to order the bare root hedging so these different areas look a little less metal fencing.
Had quite decent crops from the two beds of Pots - Fennel - Cabbage - French Beans - Borlotti beans - Chard and sprouts .
but I quickly realised I need a lot more space especially to get some rotation..
Not a lots changed at the front other than some Anemones appearing (no idea what the variety) though they are getting a little lost under the mass of sweet peas
The Verbenas gone mad (10ft tall in places) but is colourful and at least gives the sweet peas something to climb on (note for next year - taller teepees)
Best news is that the scaffolding is finally slowly coming down
Amazing pics everyone
Chicky bet you are well proud and I understand what you mean about your cage now Beautiful
Ighten beautiful too, your picture quality is fantastic and of course the subjects too
