Light drizzle here today.    It could last all day  But I think it will brighten up later    N.b. my subtle  use of smilies there 

May pop down to see if any gaillardias are available .....more for next year now so,prob buy some online over,the winter.

Verdict....your new plants this year

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 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.
