With just over a week to go before I revert from plotting to armchair gardening and pottering I’ve now done all that I need, and indeed want, to do for this year.
A robin has been keeping me company all week, which has been a real pleasure to see and hear.
Yesterday it was perched on top of the bamboo canes that are stored beside the shed singing away whilst I dead-headed and tidied the pot marigolds that are still flowering profusely.
I was really pleased to see that another two white cosmos have appeared.
I’ve also been busy collecting various flower seeds which I’ll sort out over the coming months. For anything to do with seeds it’s well worth looking at the excellent website The Seed Site which I’ve found most useful.
This is my 1000th post here but I won’t bore you with the details. However I would like to thank everyone who has stopped by and especially to those of you who’ve commented.
Happy gardening, and have a good weekend.
