Tiny green berries that don't come to much.  Not selling it well am I.  However, it is worth keeping for its autumn colour and the fact it is a bee magnet

No - the first picture i posted shows the flowers in their full glory ( i said they were inconspicuous!!).

it could well be something that has seeded there rather than been planted.

Lovely pics again - my favourite thread for passing the time (waiting for the "isolated shower" to go and isolate itself elsewhere).  My roses and delphiniums are my stars at the minute

 I love PINK roses!  Shropshire Lad, Mortimer Sackler and Constance Spry, in that order.

and then my delphiniums grown from seed 3 years ago - the best they have been

Ooooooh  I'd love a Molly the Witch and a pulsatilla if they have not been spoken for yet.  Unfortunately not much on offer from me - sent all my spares off to Somerset earlier in the week, and didn't think to hold any back.  Unless anyone would like a rudbeckia (indian summer or rustic dwarf) or a dahlia bishops children??

I have an unidentified shrub/tree - can anyone help?  It has brilliant yellow autumn colour, and at this time of year inconsequential tiny white flowers that the bees love.  Probably more a small tree than a shrub

Love Walter Funke Verdun - it is always the star of the show gardens at Hampton Court show.  Achilleas never survive beyond a year for me here - apart from the semi wild ones that do too well 

Spitting with rain here ... But long list not getting any shorter sitting here, so will go brave it .....

Have a great hols Lizzie - hope you manage to pack loads of garden visiting in

Morning all - still in bed here ..... weekend treat.  But windows flung open so am surrounded by lots of fresh air and bird tweeting

Poor RoseM and mini-fairy - hope both recover quickly

Got some taxi-ing to do first thing, then must plant out all my seed grown plants - i have a couple of busy weekends coming up so its now or never.  Like Fidget, a few pages back, it is not the planting that takes the time, but getting the ground ready first ....Monty never has that issue.

Big thunder and rain storms last night - so garden nicely watered, and that mugginess has gone.  Yippee - great weather for gardens - rain by night, sun by day
