Usually by today,

which is my birthday, the only flowers still blooming on the plot are the asters but this year there are also California poppies, cornflowers, cosmos, nasturtiums, roses, sunflowers and pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites.

I don’t really celebrate it and this morning I went plotting for a couple of hours as usual, making the most of the continuing good weather which looks like ending by the weekend as it’s going to get much colder, although still staying dry and mostly sunny.

Have a good weekend!

    Happy Birthday to you Flighty! Thanks for sharing beautiful picture of your favourite flower on this very day. May you be blessed with good health, happiness and happy plants always!
    I don’t usually celebrate mine also. If there is anything it would be 2 half-boiled eggs for breakfast – our family’s tradition.
    Thanks and same to you!

    Happy belated birthday. Nice that the flowers hung around to celebrate this year. The forecast for colder weather was spot on, it’s really cold here today and we have wind and rain too.
