I’ve done very little

My new white china dish mini pond didn’t last long as I accidently dropped it earlier in the week so I’m using the plastic plant pot saucer again.



I’ve done very little, if any, dead heading of the annual flowers – candytuft, cornflowers, cosmos, pot marigolds and sunflowers – this year leaving them to self-seed apart from the seeds I’ve collected.  Since the rain last week seedlings of all these have appeared on the flower patches.

The poached egg plants I generally just leave to self seed and a carpet of seedlings have appeared.  I wonder how will survive over the winter to grow and flower.



I think that this has been the only sunflower with a light coloured centre to appear this year.  Not that I mind as I prefer the ones with a dark centre.


Have a good weekend, and take care!

  1. Oh no, that’s the problem with breakables, they break! I’m sure the wildlife won’t mind what the water’s in, just so long as there’s water available. It will be interesting to see if the seedlings survive winter, it will be a riot of colour next year if they do.
