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

What's the star in your garden right now

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

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

I'm popping in the GC today and will have my eyes open for some more ...Jennifer is a lovely pale pink.  Unlike Fairy, i LOVE all the pinks

DD - weeding and tackling raspberries whilst keeping your calf elevated?? - sounds like a gym/yoga/contortionist club, not a running one
