Well things are gradually starting to slow down. Though only now are the Dahlias starting to flower and no sign of the Cannas yet. Nicotiana is looking very good and ever so big! Several Gingers are in bloom they are a glorious shade of orange .

The gorgeous Maisie insisted that a photo of her should be shown.

You can see a real change in the light now :(. I don't mind when it's actually in and it's dark etc but it's the waiting that I hate!! great shots and isn't Maisie cute too. 

Pis that a ginger in the second photo? It's a beauty and I definitely must put it in my list!

Lovely photos, Elizabeth. The combination of the Ginger and that beautiful dahlia is gorgeous. Surprising that plants are so late in your mild garden. Maisie is enjoying the late summer sunshine.

Lovely photos Elizabeth.  That's a gorgeous ginger and Maisie is looking her proud best. It was chilly here today, definitely a touch of autumn in the air.

Beautiful photos of beautiful plants. Tom Jones asked -rather pointedly 'But can Maisie sit on the top of a pole'?I assured her Maisie was a most accomplished pole poser but was just taking a rest.'Yes but can she do crosswords?' Ill explain later!!!!
