Too late to plant bulbs?

what's still flowering in your garden?

Still have begonias, New Guinea busy Lizzie, pelargoniums, lobelia, all doing well in pots dotted around patio and garden. Garden is still full of cosmos, antirrhinums, penstemons, and the garage roof is covered in flowering honeysuckle.Pinch me; it is November isn't it?

The bedrooms at the rear look straight across to Dartmoor, with the Tamar in the foreground - perfection!

The Tamar valley is Cornwall's best kept secret!
