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.

Good for you DD. Hope to visit on the July date, but want to see the one in Hautefort as well as he's our local organiser. I haven't opted for one of the given dates. Opening mine on 17th May, together with a friend in the village. I'm hoping to go to the Malvern Spring Show on 10th May, which was their May date. But I hope we'll meet again before that.

Must go out and do some gardening. OH and I are visiting gardening friend's husband in hospital this afternoon. He's making good progress, mentioned him on the thread about sad things and supporting each other, forgotten it's name.

I've been posting here some time now and I regularly give advice to newcomers. So do Verdun, Dove, Nutcutlet, Frank and many others.

Digger, if that was the canna thread, the person who said advice was given on GW and "here we go again" has only posted 24 times in the last year or so. Hardly cliquey!I don't think she meant any harm as she put a smiley after her remark. That thread was started 2 years ago. I think most people here are friendly and like gardening, whether expert or not.

I agree with Verdun. I don't see cliques as everyone is welcoming to newcomers. Some people have been posting over a long time and their names pop up regularly, but that doesn't mean it's cliquey.

I expect people who mention references to previous threads are trying to be helpful. You can find them by using "search this site" at the top of the page, though a link to the threads concerned would be more helpful.

The Supernatural

In 1978 we moved into an old Tudor farmhouse, beams, wonky floors, I loved it. I had a 2 1/2 year old daughter and a 10 month old son. We hadn't been there long when my daughter said "Mummy there's a lady in my bedroom", so I went to look. No one. Daughter was very disappointed and said "Lady gone, she was a very nice lady". Later that week I went to the village Post Office for my child benefit and there were 2 elderly ladies. One said "OH you're the new lady who's moved into .... have you met the ghost yet?" I told her about my daughter's nice lady and she said that the ghost had been a children's nanny a long time ago and she welcomed new children to the house.
