Lovely Victoria - mine are still going too - seems to have been an incredibly long season for them this year,

this weekends stars are the anenomes.  Wild swan has decided to turn her back on the path - which is lucky as her backside is her best bit anyway.  And then lots of Hon Jou, and some pink ones i can't remember the names of .... Queen Charlotte has buds, but yet to put in an appearance

I've got a few that flower well, and have made it through the last two winters (although they were mild ones) - they are a bit more gaudy than the heleniums they are with, but go well together.  Agree about them flopping though.

can't grow coreopsis - something eats them - think it the meeces

HELLO FORKERS!

Missed you early birds but a lovely cuppa being enjoyed here too.

have two very weedy patches to attack today, but apart from that its a quiet time out there at the moment.  Still picking raspberries, plums and tomatoes.  But some of our trees are starting to colour up, so the seasons are definitely a-changing.

are you planning any garden visiting in Italy Lizzie?
