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...

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

Shabby Chic Anyone?

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

Sounds like a good haul Liri 

Love that pot Yvie

I have non flowering acidanthera too - they were planted last year, so have survived a winter, but lots of leaves, no flowers.  Maybe next year
