It has its pros and cons. Pros are the wildlife and privacy, cons are that when the owners sell up, developers will probably rip everything thats not  got a TP order out and stick 60 houses on it. At that point I will sell up and move too.

I've been trawling through old photos on the computer. Its amazing how the beds change from one year to the next. Something dies overwinter, and leaves a gap. Other things are getting too big.

Definitely time to have a clear out  and a rethink. Lots of catalogues to peruse over winter.

Its drizzling steadily here. I am uploading garden animal pictuers on to the camera thread. I keep coming across warm place diving pictures. I'm getting withdrawal symptoms. I need warmth on my old bones.

Yes the yellow flowering thing is a wallflower.

Save seeds still in pods for July next year. Its too late to sow this year to have flowers next year.

I think your little seedlings are weeds. I can see at least two of the euphorbia (weed) family. Seedling wallflowers have long leaves by the time they get to three or four leaves.

 Hope that helps.
