Wonderful and sunny here today my side of The Styx very pleasant as well it did get to tropical 18.4c early on but a bit cooler now at 16.5 and not a breath of wind for a change so all in all a grand day,  but will it be like this tomorrow I very much doubt it.

The ankle is getting on fine now thanks Geoff,  have managed to get about with out my walking stick for over a week now I had to as I didn't want to be reliant on it,  I have to go for a bone scan 31st this month to see if I have Osteoporosis and there's a person you can talk to if you have lost the confidence to go out on your own,  I need to get into my head that I wont fall over again more so when the frost's come again otherwise I shall be house bound for the entire winter but at least I can plan the garden,  might ask the person if I can take a cutting from the plant,  have managed to find some seeds on eBay OK they're only annuals but I've fallen in love with them. .

Thank you all for the replies,  it seems as if I'm going to have to ask a total stranger if I can take a cutting from his plant,  might just wait and see if I can get a plant from a GC or B+Q,  sorry about that Geoff I realised what you meant just after hitting the post button,  little grey cells not working properly today,  bit water logged I think

Forgot to say that it was in someone else's garden  not mine,   also it seems to close up when the sun's gone do all osteospurmun's do that and with the rain that's coming down now weejenny it wont matter what side of the fence it's on

My thought too-but it is a nosy one


What do you mean by a nosy one Geoff or am I being a bit dim,  now that I know what it is and thanks for that,  can I grow it from  seed presumably when the flower head dies it will produce seeds

I've looked at this plant for many weeks and always forgot to take my camera,  so today as I forgot it again I pinched a flower that was growing through the fence,  I'm sorry it's a bit blurred but I wanted to take the photo outside and as it was starting to rain did it in a bit of a rush,  anyway here goes it's a kind of daisy type and  pinky/purple in colour

Stunning garden Lillylouise,  your plants seem to have escaped the worst of the rain and yes you are right we all need some sunshine now.
