Hi all. Not been around here much lately (again, life gets in the way).

Had a good day today. Went to plant sale at Sheffield Botanical Gardens. Came away £12 lighter with a heuchera peach flambé, phlox Natasha, perovskia blue spire and anemone whirlwind. Nowhere to put them though!. And no trees for sale, which I'd kinda hoped for, so will have to wait until they come in at GC.

I've been trying to dig out or divide a phormium (gold variegated type), but it is IMPOSSIBLE! So will have to but a new one for the 'ideal spot', and let the big one stay where it is.

Hope all of you are well and happy.

Some 'shout out loud' nasturtiums.

Cosmos (star all year) still going strong keeping that summer feeling.

The dianthus by the path is happily doing it's thing and sweet peas training over the rope but not quite right, will try again next year.
