Love that 6ft aster.  Must go google.....unless anyone else can hazard a guess as to what it might be called

Keep meaning to say .... saw a lovely arrangement at Wisley the other week that I am going to try and copy:

 Have now found an old crate, sempervirums on order from a Scottish nursery - should arrive Thursday - and will go on a garden hunt for broken terracotta pots this weekend - I'm sure there are some out there somewhere

Will show you when I am done .....its not often I get creative

Hope littlies are over the worst soon Yvie

Woody - i used to get taken to Mudeford beach as a treat when I was a little'un (We only lived a mile from the sea, but all our local beaches were stony)

excited at the thought that my acidanthera's might also have magiced flowers when I wasn't looking - will check at the weekend (probably the next time i will see the garden in the light). Desperate measures called for this evening - its been so dry i had to water my pots with a headtorch on

Good to see you Matty - hope all is good with you and yours

Wow, what a sunset!

Morning

Just been to google something (other search engines are available) and the logo tells me that it is the first day of Autumn.  Trees still pretty green here, so will remain in denial for a few more weeks.

So glad Pa was found safe and sound - what a nightmare few hours for you all.

Morning.  Dark when the alarm went off this morning .... But have just been out picking raspberries for my breakfast regardless .... which still makes it technically summer, doesn't it.

hope all have a good week - esp OL and OH, as they start their new Venture.

Great photos Liri - and what a transformation

Hope GD gets some sleep Yvie - poor thing.  On cracked chimney pots - i plant mine up with plastic pots that i slot in the top of the chimney - don't think a crack would hurt doing it that way.

night all

Littlest chicklet had the hand/foot/mouth thing when she was five - horrible, horrible illness.  her mouth was so sore all she could eat was soggy weetabix and mashed potato and gravy.  Hope your GD picks up soon Yvie.

nice day out, but lots of traffic on way home, so am feeling a bit jaded.  And also a bit concerned that my w/end seems to have disappeared so quickly ..... does someone speed up the Sat and Sun hours??
