The garden has changed dramatically in the last two weeks.and while i enjoy all the seasons Spring is the one i wait in anticipation for, followed closely by Autumn.(The second awakening.)
But first a few late comers from summer


Canna with nice leaves


Actaea Simplex ’pink spike


Actaea seedling potted on from last years sowing,they took ages to germinate.


Rudbeckia


Crocosmia Star of India.this has a lot of bad press but does not cause me any problem


A little extra colour Heather growing in a container with red stemmed Maple
Cyclamen Coum is also showing just, to add colour in Jan 2011


Remember this one from last spring! Paeonia Cambessedesii a fleeting angel


This is natures miracle from pink flowers to spectacular seeds


The red ones the birds will take but we don’t mind because the black ones are the fertile ones for thoes willing to wait five years


Not so pretty but these are Paeonia Lutea many times larger than the previous ones


Cyclamen Hederifolium abound in the garden


In pink and white


The more delicate cyclamen cilicium can be moved under glass if the weather deteriorates this container also houses Galanthus Regina Olga this will follow, flowering in Oct/Nov


Primula seedlings germinated in about 3 weeks may be able to pot them off in a few weeks if the weather stays mild.


Aquilegia named yellow one this is what happens when it rains hard and the pots not laying flat
Enough for now happy Gardening

While I'm not a fan of winter, at least it gives us gardeners to recharge our batteries and have time for all those tempting catalogues

No not a fan of winter these days to many muscles ache with the cold ,I find there is always something doing its best to flower even in the worst weather if we go and look.
As for the catalogs nice as you say to look and take stock as to if we really do want it.This year i think i will scan through the pictures I have saved in my GOU favorites and work from that rather than taking the nursery mans word for it that it's the best plant they have raised in the last 10 years.

Cristina the C word all to commercialised for me, I was happiest with my stocking my Beano Annual an Apple and Orange not that I expect you to remember those days.
Some of these things don't seem real they are just a distant memory.
Like delivering milk in churns with the farmer on his two wheeled horse and Trap,people coming out of there houses with there pint jugs,and keeping my hands warm on the churns, thats how fresh it was ,no pasteurising then.Unless you were posh and had it delivered by the c.o.o.p in a electric Van.
Will stop now, not sure what it has to do with my blog.
Finally missing Hywel nothing from him since middle of July Hope he is well and on a World Cruise.

My sons wouldn't believe we used a small, wooden surrounded slate for sums and drawing when I was in primary one at school. That's when my art career started.

Lovely blog Bjs. I don't know why but there are one or two of my favourites whose blogs and photos don't flag up so I miss them for weeks. Anyway it was nice to see the paeonia seeds. The Paeonia Cambessedesii seed pod is spectacular.
