The autumn drizzle has started

so it’s not cold and brutal but just warm and wet. Obviously that means I haven’t been out into the garden but instead stood looking out of the kitchen window and I decided it hasn’t all been bad and jumbled this year. Right out by the window the purple Geranium Roxanne has been flowering for so long I can’t remember a time when it wasn’t there. It might just be the best value plant there is. The colour’s pretty, it’s not too straggly like lots of geraniums and it just flowers and flowers. If you see some for sale I would buy it!


Looking beyond that it goes somewhat down hill. I have sold the wendy house as no one used it. It’s surprising how open the garden is now it’s gone. However, in it’s place there is the rotten base and lots of bare soil which needs sorting out. On one hand it’s very exciting because I can go and buy more plants – which is my favourite occupation. On the other, I have to clear it all out before I get to that bit. I wondered to myself if that would be a before or after christmas event. In the end I did go out in the garden to take the photo of the geranium and at the back I found the fail safe Rosa Ballerina flowering like it was June.
