Mornin All, Glad Pa is OK Dove, it sounds like he's the one that's been on the mystery tour.
I dont really like Yellow or Red flowers in the summer but spring and autumn without them is just plain wrong. I moved a lot this summer and need to work out where I can put a couple of extra Autumn plants. I have a lovely helenium in the organge/yellow bit of the garden and a nice dark pink plant in the pink/blue bit that's just going over. I'd like a couple of copper coloured plants that aren't chrysanths. I'll have a browse for next year. I'm also looking for something pinky purple to grow through some gyp in summer/autumn it used to have an orange geum there but I moved it.
One year old grandaughter has now been joined by six year old grandaughter and both are pretty poorly. SIL stayed home to help this morning and Firstborn is coming home after lunch. They are both teachers so it's not as if they can book a few days holiday to look after them. I'm up to my neck in calpol, nurofen, piriton and calamine lotion. Nanna 2 takes over tomorrow and I get to home for a couple of days break.
With a bit of luck I will be able to get my seeds planted.
