well, good morning all you happy forumers!
I must beg to differ about autumn though Stacey & FG.
At this time of year Im usually so disappointed with my garden's lack of colour and flowers. Had a look round last night and there's so much busting it's guts to SPRING into flower, full of anticipation. there's the good old montbetia, chives reappearing, salvia hot lips still producing a small display, hydrangea getting ready,fushias looking lovely (should get more), even echinacea! Quite a lot are also still flowering, a fave is my new phygelius which just keeps going which means it needs moving to a prime spot for next year.
I say 'even' echinacea as I have tried this so many times before, from seed, stolen from a friend, stolen from my sister, from GC, but they have never made it before. Now I have a flower - not as pretty as I though it would be granted, but it's there!
Like KEF ill catch up on threads later. wish you all well today. enjoy the warmth which seems to have returned.
(gotta say its so much easier to write loads when on laptop, im usually on phone).
