Pick of the day

30 October 2017 14:36:46

The garden has gone a bit down hill recently because I am a summer weather gardener. Thankfully the dahlias and little chrysanthemums look after themselves. I am still picking loads of little cherry tomatoes that are growing in pots outdoors.

I thought I was sowing medium height Cosmos but they turned out to be over a metre tall. The storms flattened them but but they are still flowering away. 

I cut  this bunch for the house earlier today.

Beautiful bouquet, Michele. My poor dahlias were shredded during the storms.

The Cosmos are great value Michelle . They really outlive so many others this time of year . Frost forecast so that will put an end to the summer gardening alright

That's a gorgeous heart-warming bouquet.

I like the way they complement the brass container. Real heartwarming colour.
