Who was collecting me? Was it Topbird with the charabanc? I've got the croissants.

Have gardened today, cleared some of the bed at the bottom of the wall below the trellis. Full of weeds, and a horrible aster with tiny white flowers that go brown very quickly. Some one gave it to me at a plant swap and it was rampant. All gone (I hope). Dug up some of the Alchemilla Mollis, dug the compacted soil, added manure and compost, replanted the AM. Then planted pink tulips, forget-me-nots, pansies, a dark red heuchera and a cream and green Brunnera. Bit shaded because of apple trees. Have the next section to do, covered with lamium, ivy and grass.

How warm is it with you today?

As usual it's done my post upside down, Hypericum should be first! Forgot Nelly Moser.

 The Loropetalem usually flowers in spring. I'll bring it indoors for the winter.

Anyone else have some autumn flowers?

 Lobelia is still out and the pink Toscana strawberries are having another flush of flowers.

My garden is nearly over now, but I am planting spring bedding and will plant tulips soon. I have a few straggly dahlias and a few late roses. A Nelly Moser and a hypericum have decided to do a few late flowers as the weather is so mild.
