Poor Flynn Hope you work out what is upsetting his system soon.

hugs for Liri and Lesley and their Mums.  Hope both recover speedily

thank heavens the winds have died down.  Luckily no damage here - hope everyone else escaped harm (apart from the dustbin lids - one of the advantages of a wheelie bin).  

Porridge .....yum

Matty has said it all Lyn - a tough day

Might be worth feeding the leaves with tomorite (or something like it) a couple of times this year before they disappear -will give them a boost for next season

Ooooh - hope that leucanthemum picked up DD - it is looking a little sad

Blowing a hoolie here too - and set to last all day.  I hate wind and gales more than any other weather.

was going to say that I hope Dove gets some "me" time at the coast today ....but maybe a day to stay at home instead.

i hate anniversaries too.  Don't get to visit Mum's grave as often as I should, but planted an acorn from a special tree there, which is growing quite nicely.  I talk to that a lot ....slightly mad, but it works for me.

What a lovely container Fidget (Few pages back now, but still in my memory).

Cinderella was great - nothing wrong with a bit of schmaltzy feel good.

Had a great afternoon yesterday, avoiding the gales and the rain in the GH.  Lots of rooted cuttings potted up (including several Beau Sedums), and lots of seedlings pricked out (including KEF delphiniums), and some more seeds sown (including Fairy Nasturtiums).  Felt like my Forker Friends were all in there with me having a party

I have a white one, and a leonard messel, but have never noticed a scent from either. Very pretty though
