Always room for more plants Verdun!

I picked up two chocolate Cosmos today, (never tried them before) as well as three packets of Liatris which  bulked up lovely in my garden last year and convinced me to add more clumps.

Also some annual seeds. Can't wait for spring!

@Clarington, stay safe with the Haggis!

I steer clear of Oats that can't guarantee wheat free as the smallest amount of Gluten upsets my insides for days. I'm not sure if there is such a thing as a tolerance level since when something sneaks through in my diet, I'm always staggered and amazed that its the most tiny least ingredient and my stomach immediately looks like a football.

Windy day here and raining

late tulips

I planted some alliums last week that were discounted at the GC.

Alliums are planted same time as Tulips although I guess Tulips sell out faster? You could try your local GC. (the packets said right up until Dec so what's a few days more?)

Well weekend shift finished and next weekend is holiday so I have a very long list of things to get done over next twelve days.

It's very gusty here today, little Flynn was scared to stay out in it so pooped in the office. Oh dear  never mind, he's afraid of noises mostly, the two big dogs barking next door will guarantee a swift turn around when he's enjoying the garden although we might have better luck in the house, since OH has been training him with the hoover all weekend. (before that, I hovered and Flynn took to sitting on my OH's shoulders for safety.)

Watched The Garden Revival show on catch-up last night and you know what...Carol kind of convinced me about daffs. Never liked them much but now I realise the choice, will investigate for next year maybe. Even OH liked some

ditto to birthday wishes and glad tidings, and welcome back Fairygirl and have a great day to all

So glad to hear the worst of the wind seems to have gone.

@Chicky, I had a beautiful Rowan tree once but but but, the fragrance attracts flies so good luck with your better choice than mine

Oh gosh what drama is around us with gale force winds and falling fences and falling Lilies, (hope you get well soon SGL) and Chicky on the road.

We are fine here at the moment, couple of power fluctuations at work and home apparently, but nothing serious. Hope all stay safe and upright
