Glad to see you back Lizzie - and good to hear you had such a lovely holiday. Lovely pressies for OL - aren't we a funny lot - getting excited over gifts of tin baths. I have one with 3 hostas in it - i love it. Have a good/busy week with OH.
Pdoc - glad the garden worked a little bit of its magic - will be thinking of you this week. Difficult times.
Expecting a manic week of work this week (and then a quiet spell, relatively speaking) - so may only have time to lurk. But watching your antics will keep me sane.
I've found it self seeds well ( but unwanted ones are easy to get rid of) - but you need it to self seed to get into all those nooks and crevices that you could never intentionally plant it in. Now that it has got going it is a star in my stone walls
Something about watching the light fade that is magical. Unfortunately I missed it this evening (a girls gotta hoover sometime). Got the wine now though, might take it outside and listen to the owls.....Archie has inspired me
Missed them first time, but got them now
Wonderful mallow Art - didn't know you could grow them as annuals - how tall is that one ? Looks like a potential back of border plant to add to next year's list...
Everything still looking good out there ..... don't you just love an Indian Summer Here are some of my "cage" ....
OH has just scalped the grass
Archie - was thinking the same re the daisies
And the anemones are good too
MrsG - your garden is looking absolutely stunning - just love that slate path and rope railing - very jealous
Cheeky Fairy . Cultivating that rustic look here. Thats my "sit and eat breakfast" bench - it would hurt my morning eyes if i painted it pink .......because there isn't any other colour
And in the time honoured tradition of sharing our purchases, here is my new sky rocket. Did you ever see a more "cuddly" plant??
Good to see you Pdoc, but sorry the news about your Mum is worrying. Enjoy some garden time as a welcome respite for a few hours - still plenty of wildlife buzzing round in mine to watch.
Another lie-in here - but will get up soon for some garden pottering. Just tweaking needed at the moment, so lots of time to just look at it
Fairy - looks like something out of the pages of Country Life. All you need now is a beagle ....OL might be able to lend you one. You must be dead chuffed
