Not a great day although fine and bright now.
Anybody wanting a splash of orange in his/her garden check out geum Tangerine Dreams. I have 5 clumps around the garden and they are providing superb "see through" delicate little orange flowers on wiry stems. Been flowering for a month or more but last year flowered forever,,even during the winter. They form large clumps, seem resistant to slugs, and lift the whole garden. They complement blues, reds, yellows as well as green foliage.
My mum enjoyed her day at Day Centre. I thought they were places where old people were "dumped" and catered only for their existence. HOw wrong was I? Happy, lively, stimulating and embracing ....did my mum a power of good.
