What a joke ; I see my post regarding 'Cats' has been hastily removed by the ever watchful BBC (does that stand for Big Brother Corporation ) ??

I happened to mention a surefire way of solving the cat problem , but  I see it has suddenly vanished ; how amazing!!

Nothing so sinister Paul, this site has nothing to do with the BBC.  I reported your post as your sure fire way of solving the cat problem is to delibratley set poison down for your neigbours cats.

Cosmos aren't hardy so any frosts and snow will kill them off. Start again with your seeds in Spring.

I had a snail for a pet, a huge African Land Snail, wouldn’t want him eating plants in the garden though.

you could actually hear him eating munching on his veg. 

This is a google picture as mine are all on laptop and I can’t be bothered to boot up.😀

You've got loads Lyn, those pansies do look strong and healthy. What are the small ones at the front in your last picture? I recognise them but can't think of a name. I'm the opposite, I keep meaning to do autumn sowings and then never get around to it

Not normally got a lot going on at this time of year. Late sowings of  larkspur, purple toadflax and some red scabious.Very pleased as seed collected from the garden, all in the frame as well as the cat.

It's amazing how many plants you get from a packet of seeds. Sow lots of annuals in Spring, they grow quick and will fill your garden.
