i have to admit heather i am also scared of wasps.. i am the only one doing the crazy dance when they come near us... and why is it when you on the beach you dont see one of the blighters until you get your pinic out

i am ok with bees (not wasps) and i dont mind bugs but i do hate spiders terribley so..

i dont really like much with more than 4 legs to be honest.. but i cope with most of them..

we have an electric tennis racket for getting wasps and flies and big spiders in the house.. but outside just try to shoo them away..

coloured giant scabious - mixed pale & dark pink, crimson, white and mauve (if you wish a certain colour then let me know and i will harvest jus them)

mauve cupids darts

sweet william - william and kate

siberian wallflower

verbena rigida


i dont have time to collect many this year as doing massive ground works with old paths being dug up and new ones laid.. the garden has suffered a little this year i hate to admit it but with the paths and my inflammatory  arthritis playing up it has not been foremost in my mind..
