these are my stars at the moment

 love them and what a surprise they were too.

Thinking ahead

i will also let more things grow where they are first.. then removed what i dont want.. did this last year and i also got some nice little surprises.

i ahve few plants that are in the wrong place.. need shade and not sun.

put most of all next year my new path will be finished (fingers crossed) and i will ahve nice big new borders to fill... and that will be lots of moving around and filling up have some plants ready already:-

 on the vetegable side of it i will not plant so many runner beans... been overloaded with them this year.. and i will plant many more peas and carrots instead and try some french beans. we will not be doing broccoli again as fed up with the butterflies and their eggs this year has been so time consuming.

i will try and sow my seeds earlier as they didnt do so well this year.. my cosmos have been nothing really.

and with all the seeds i hope to get in the swap.. i will ahve lots new plants to work with also.
