I have never grown gaillardias.  who does? Poor versions of heleniums? Or are they valued as great perennials?

Another brill morning.......warm already

What a lovely time of year in the garden......rich colours everywhere. Agree with Monty  when he said the "autumn" light brings out the full colours.  However, it still is very much summer but I guess light levels are diminishing 

Have good day everyone

Tordi, how old is your plant?  New purchase or been in the  garden a while?

Looking at your leaves will indicate if there is a deficiency of iron,,magnesium, etc.  a simple spray of Epsom salts will rectify the latter.

Bamboogie, ??ou seem to enjoy plants I do.  

Removing hedychiums actually was quite a workload.  3 year old plants had huge woody and very lomg and deep roots.  Main issue was that nothing else could grow in an increasingly large area .  I guess cannas do something similar too so I divide these every 2 or 3 years

Yes, it's important to look forward but the past is important too.  I have this argument with my brother who has no sentiment for the past or the people of the past.  He has the same attitude to the present ....and the future?  lily Pilly, I disagree.  We are not the only omes who matter 

Folks.  This thread is apart from garden matters.  Those who don't like it do not need to read it but many of us will value it I think.

Nice hedychiums ....down here they spread too too much.  Had various varieties and gave them to a friend who has acres.  So I still get to see them.  For me they also,have nice scent 

Bamboogie, lovely garden
