Lovely Fairy. I love how the raised beds go from white to blue, but with the green working hard in both.

and the view across the garden is unrecognisable now - it looks like something out of one of my glossy mags. Is it grasses in the planters either side?

Morning. And happy birthdays to Mr Dove and Mr Fidget

Marzipanned the cake yesterday, then out for a drinks and nibbles do with my Pilates class which was fun - seemed strange to see them in normal clothes and with both feet firmly on the ground.

Great to see our absent Panda has popped in between her partying

Today is a day for making lists .....what to do, what to grocery shop for, what to cook and when etc etc.   .......its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

and Mr C wants to get out there for a walk I think I will join him.

Do you mean isotoma ?  I grow a lot of it as summer bedding, because the deer don't munch it.  However, because I have to use it such a lot it has become kind of a signature plant.  Here is this year's display


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

They leave Primulas and hellebores alone here (you can get some good reds in those)  and snowdrops are ok too.  We also have a lithodora (bright blue flowers) that is doing well and gives flowers for a long season, which might be good for a churchyard.
