Visited westacre nursery, as recommended by Nut - lovely place, very colourful and peaceful, and the staff were SO friendly and helpful.  Was a highlight in an otherwise grim day.  Verdun, you will be pleased to know agastache black adder came home with me!!

But not many days left now Dove ...

Still no tomatoes anywhere near here - but mini-munch cucumbers have been cropping well since July.  About to go and do an apple inventory - listen out for the cries of anger coming from somewhere southwards

If it were me, I would wait to see if they survive - if they don't then you will soon see them wilt, and can revert to plan B (the windowsill)

What's the star in your garden right now

Evening all and welcome Felicite (love the name BTW!).

Just out to water my pots as they will be left to the mercies of OH tomorrow.  I am off to Norfolk for a day to visit a special relative who is very sick.  Sad times.  Staying in a Travelodge so I don't have to drive the journey twice in one day.

If the sun is shining I will take a visit to Nut's nursery recommendation on the way home.  My aunt is a great garden fan, so it somehow seems fitting, even if she can't come too.

Matty - amazing!! You must have patience galore and a very steady hand.  And much better "visualisation" skills than i possess

Morning all - welcome back Andy - you were missed !  Gets lonely here sometimes on the early shift.  Sorry to hear you have been in hospital, but good to hear you are back on form again.

As for novels, given the 50 one a miss, only like murders if they are Agatha Christie, but love my chick(y)- lit.  Lizzie - have you discovered Kate Moreton - you would love her!

Back to the gardening.  Have a window sill full of cosmos flowers that broke off in the weekend winds, and the little blighters (squirrels this time) have started pinching the apples again - thought I had got away with it this year - but I was wrong
