Its looking great Fairy - and all only a year old - you are making such a difference to that space,  love that nasturtium too - another for the notebook - think i could have that tumbiling down a wall in my red corner.  Good to see the soon to be "ex" buddleia will live on in spirit

I love my gaillardias too - had never heard of them before i bought them a couple of years ago - certainly didn't realise they were around in Granny Dove's time.

It's my birthday

Rubenza - have made a note of the name.  Got my seeds from an online supplier via Amazon i think.  I was searching for blue delphinium seeds, and they just fell in my "basket" ..... bit like what sometimes happens at the GC
