damp and dull mid November morning earlier when I went for a poddle* round the allotments, and then across to the horticultural society trading shed for a quick word with someone. (* a word used by Alison, @papaver on Twitter, this morning which I’ve not come across before but made me smile, and is something I certainly do).
I spotted these linaria maroccana Fairey Bouquet which self-seed every year from some I originally grew several years ago.
A flower that certainly did well this year, more so for others than myself, was cosmos, especially over the past couple of months. These were some of plot neighbour Fran’s photographed a few weeks ago. As you can see they’d grown to well over twice their normal height of around three feet.
Needless to say they’re on my list to grow next year, mostly the white variety Purity which is a definite favourite.
Have a good week!
