Still fine and bright here ........

Dropped into GC as I passed by.  A few half price perennials but still they weren't cheap.  Rather buy exactly what I want online over winter.

Praise where praise is due

You sound nice Lesley but NO, I would not want a note through my door complimenting me on anything. 

Its ok when someone visits or walks past  but a note?

Always looking for the darkest red astrantia too.  I think hadspen blood takes some beating.   I don't have Venice so can't compare but Hadspen seems to have darker foliage and more maroon flowers so I would go for this.

Is it just me?  I tend to feel buying plants at,this time of year smacks of desperation.

For next year I will be planning over the autumn and winter.  Spring buying is understandable because the excitement of a new season beckons but buying now is usually to impulse gap fill??  Those chrysanthemums that look so good in the garden centres, for example,......all treated to look mounded and floriferous ......will last as an attractive feature in the  garden for just a couple of weeks 

........stirring the pot or what!
