Scary GH scenes KEF - hate flappy things in enclosed spaces too

Marathon planting weekend successfully completed.  Not many more gaps left in the borders and watering duty seriously shortened.  Been pretty cold and cloudy here but no rain.

inspired by Fergus G on Wednesday, i am now reading Christopher Lloyds biography ..... what a mother

Got lots of plants planted out - about 40 rudbeckias, some cosmos and some dahlias. More cosmos and lupins tomorrow, and then i'm done.

Fairy - slugs and snails decimating one of my clematis too - little alpine one - they are climbing up the rose and munching from there.  Keep thinking i have got it high enough to be out of danger, and then the munching starts again.

Footie tonight will mean its a late one - I'll be up til the final whistle if anyone wants to chat !

Our meadow is finally coming to something ..... thanks Nut

Tiny green berries that don't come to much.  Not selling it well am I.  However, it is worth keeping for its autumn colour and the fact it is a bee magnet

No - the first picture i posted shows the flowers in their full glory ( i said they were inconspicuous!!).

it could well be something that has seeded there rather than been planted.

Lovely pics again - my favourite thread for passing the time (waiting for the "isolated shower" to go and isolate itself elsewhere).  My roses and delphiniums are my stars at the minute

 I love PINK roses!  Shropshire Lad, Mortimer Sackler and Constance Spry, in that order.

and then my delphiniums grown from seed 3 years ago - the best they have been
