Rudbeckia Goldstrum brightening up a soggy October day
Have had little or no time in the garden since my last journal 10 days ago really had withdrawal symptoms. Last Saturday my lap top decided it needed a little rest and it was Thursday before it was sorted with a new power cable was really feeling lonely not being able to check up on what everyone was up to. Weather on Tuesday fabulous managed to plant some of my bulbs in the shady corner and planted out some plants from waiting into the corner on Wednesday as well, then along came the rain so nothing done through weather and work. Sunday and Monday last were spent making delicious Elderberry and Crabapple jelly and as the weather was pretty miserable I didn't miss out now 10 pots of this ruby red jelly stored in the cupboard. Trying to update my business website so no gardening today which would have been limited as the ground is very soggy after really heavy rain last night again. Took a few photos today there are certainly some plants that have impressed with the lenght of time in flower Ann Folkard geranium, Campanula Elizabeth have been providing colour for months. On the downside discovered a big hole in the south bed with plants rooted out so will have a bit of repair work to do if the weather holds up tomorrow.
