Is this common, strange, very strange or unprecedented? I was down in the Scrub minding me own business when I noticed that a rhodo which has never been very floriferous, has jst put out one flower  and theres a few more coming. This in September! I thought May was their season!

Only did three jobs yesterday. First lifted a rock to enhance it and to help the little bed around it. It took some time but am happy with the result. Then more work on the well named Long Border! Got about two metres done and divided and replanted. Then i hoed Eileen's flowerbed with my new hoe. Great bargain in local shop. Went in for handle and got hoe for 8euro with a very strong handle -metal. (Kingfisher). Down and did some weeding in bed beside newly raised rock.

So happy that my strimmed alchemelia mollis has put on a nice show of fresh leaves.

The garden is looking fantastic, Peter. All the work you are doing is paying off. Don't know why rhodos have the odd flower now, but magnolias that have magnolia soulangeana in their genes also have a few flowers at this time of year.
