There should be a set of steps leading up to this arch?  Someone did not stake the Asters!!  Bit late now, maybe next year??

This is my first year to have Peacock Orchids, they were given to me as a present. They were not somthing I was going to buy.  I have been quite pleased with them but they have only started flowering in the last few weeks but are very pretty.

I presume I need to dig them up after the first frost and replant in the Spring?

I bought this Persicaria on my one and only visit to the Mount Venus nursery (must go back!).  I love it and it has been flowering for months.

Any idea of a name?

This was a new shrub for me this year, a birthday present from my mum in April.  She ordered 2 from Johnstown GC, one for her and one for me, unfortunately they both died which was really strange and Johnstown were really good to replace them with even 2 bigger and better ones which are thriving. 

They are mainly for the Autumn colour but I love the shape during the summer too and when the sun was shining through it this morning it looked as if it was on fire, stunning.

Lovely day today (through the window!).  Enjoy it those of you who can :)

Asters

These would brighten up anyones day, still not getting a chance to get out in the garden but did buy some half price plants the other day so have to get them into the ground next weekend.  Also bought some bulbs which won't plant themselves!  Hope I am not doing it in December which has been the case in the past!

Hope you are all well.
