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.

A couple of photos.

Recently PeterW posted a photo of Colocasia gaoligongensis showing the fab leaves. He kindly gave me a plant a couple of years ago and this year it produced a flower/spathe.

The leaves are still quite small but it has sent out runners so I will have babies to try in various conditions.

Lily Casa Blanca my very favourite lily with such a wonderful scent. Have these plants for a long time. It used to grow very tall  but in pots is shorter . It is putting on a great show this year. Lovely to sit next to it and have a cuppa!!

A Muse ..a long one!
