I was lucky to buy one of the plants on my Wish list at Bloom this year, I had seen it many magazines but not in a garden.  The only downside of it is that it grows quite tall 4 - 7 foot so needs good staking which stupidly I did not do and it blew over!  I lost half the plant as it broke off.  The other half is flowering, will definately stake it really well next year as it gives lovely colour at this time of year and is very different to the popular Goldsturm.

It has been so long since I have been here I nearly forgot my password!

My mum has been in hospital for the last 6 weeks but thankfully came home on Friday and making a good recovery, times have been so hard as she was in ICU for 4 weeks and critical for a few days but things are looking up again.  She has a long way to go as she has to have a operation (cancer) in 5 weeks but she has been an inspiration to us all remaining positive since her diagnosis in June.

Apart from not having time for the garden I actually lost all interest in it until yesterday.  I thought on Saturday I could get out there but I could not get my foot out the door!  Anyway hopefully I am back, will not be writing a whole lot as I am now working full time but I do love to read your journals.

Even though I have done next to nothing in the garden in the last 2 months I am still amazed at the colour there, just don't look down low at the weeds -I don't know how I am ever going to tackle them!

The bed that has amazed me most is my new bed, the progress has been good.

The Dahlia Bishop of Llanduff has been flowering for weeks, I will definately lift them and store them for the winter and the Dwarf Sunflowers from seed from Lidl have been great.  Everything else has rocketed all of a sudden.

Looking forward to our next Get Together :)
