Posted: 26/08/2014 at 19:03

 The peach one is on it's own , all the other red/white ones are from the same plant!


Never grown dahlias before this year, here are my first attempts at the little dahlings!

Someone asked for a photo of my purchase yesterday so here it is. It's lilac coloured - not a lilac- as you can now see... Thalictrum delavayi. Picture seems to have disappeared! That's trying to be too clever and get words / photo in the right order... So it'll just end up anywhere now! Ha! It's in the right place now! Sorry not got a close up.

Me too, Bekkie, mum things to do (well visit), but need her to phone with a time first! Meanwhile I'm getting on with nothing! Loads to do but just whiling away my time on here and looking at purple leaved silver birches again.

My Brugmansia finally flowered!

Well worth the wait aren't they sara? Your leaves look so much healthier than mine.

 And a 'rescue' poppy has sprung into flower


Some of my stars, especially the brugmansia with $ open flowers and lots of buds to follow.

A single tiny plant from a forum friend turned into a huge beautiful cosmos, still going strong

Happy with the red border.
