Arising from Jacinta's journal.

My original one had got very large with enormous leaves. Then I allowed one of the babies to grow on and that together with about 4 other small suckers all sharing the food supply has resulted in the leaves of the original one becoming much smaller. I miss the huge leaves but am loathe to dig up the second one. Maybe I could trace the root of the second one and cut it hoping by now it will survive on its own.?

For me this year one flower was an absolute eye opener. Not a  rare or exotic bloom from furrin parts no indeed , I refer to the Cornflower. I had never realised this lasted so long, the whole Summer despite at some point , see photo, being dashed to the ground by wind and rain. I rate it the best performing plant in my garden this year and there will be plenty more to see next year. Another great  and unsung hero to me is Potentilla recta, a sort of untamed Potentilla with yellow flowers that blooms its socks off and self seeds.

Before the bad weather arrives took a few photos of the hot bed area which is still looking good. Great to have colour into October.
