These  days I am sure I use the secateurs cutting movement without even knowing it. I wonder do I do it in my sleep!! Well after another few hours with the secateurs I went for a wander.

There is still a lot of colour especially in parts of the hot border. Other parts are now bare earth . Good old Cuphea still going strong and as ever an Oriental poppy has to prove it is there. P.amplexicaulis is good for another few weeks. From the photo with the leaves of a Crocosmia across the front I will  need to go snipping those tomorrow.

Salvia ulignosa is really a wonderful blue. It gets so tall that I have to remind myself to look up. But it is worth raising the eyes.
