Thanks for the aconitum tips Verd - will keep an eye on the moisture levels next year. Mine are Bressingham blues - think they are an August variety

HELLO FORKERS!

On a train home from York - successful day (another Uni to add to the list of potentials) - but a long way for a daytrip! Still, chicklet loved it, and is all fired up again at the thought of her future. Best not let her know her Mum is crying inside . Got enough sense to keep that as my secret

Glad the West Acre trip was a success - great pics on the other thread - an inspiring place !

Feel exactly the same as you Cornish Clare ! For 18 years now its been the music that says "the weekend's started" - absolutely love it.

Am humming it now

Correction - was humming it, but on a train and my daughters are threatening to disown me as a crazy lady

Stunning Verd - so pleased you can now share pics (cheapo or not, they look great to me!)

Like Victoria, love the colours in the first one esp - the dahlia and the red grass are superb together.

Never tried acteas - might have to go on my ever growing list

I planted a couple of aconitums last year (got the from West Acre, as it happens) - this year they look healthy, with lots of foliage, but no flowers - do they take a while to settle in?

It's my birthday
