I've got a wee headache this morning but it's not due to the Heavy drinking I did yesterday 

Such a busy day, had to visit the vets with Flynn, then do a mad shop before a friend turned up for dinner. He is studying in Coventry and booked a hotel but ended up on an air-bed on our living room floor

Agrees with Pdoc because I brought 15 white echinacea this year and 6 chocolate cosmos and I've got a grand total of 1 and a half cosmos survivors

The echinacea got some wilting problem that I couldn't fix and the cosmos came with large tubers but no eyes to grow from 

Am never buying cheap again as I am really dissatisfied and I can't be bothered to refund just won't ever do cheap again

So much is late in my garden chicky comparing my photos from same time last year 

Matty you're right about liking spiky and white, I already have echinops ritro so let us know about the white form

Yvie, put those embarrassed smilies away, changing your mind is allowed especially with good reason and it always makes me feel better

re plants, I have a couple of gaps, really need something round and preferably white for gap in my purple and white garden, maybe an aster?

I have a terrible weakness for spiky plants  I think most of my herbaceous this year will be flowering spires

(also have the perfect spot next to step for the perfect iris, but I'm very fussy which

Yvie good luck with the climbers that extension is ghastly 

Chicky poor love and you had such plans to catch up but family is right to take care of you
