the mombretia spread but i havent noticed lucifer getting any bigger which is a shame.

I lost my Lucifer and because the others don't get a lot of sun because of the trees ,they are quite insignificant.Yours is lovely Stickie.

It would go lovely with your yellow flowers Sticki! Orange and red flowers also really glow in the evening light and when the garden lights go on.

AND in your shady garden! Goodness, we hare having a downpour..almost a cloudburst!

26 Aug, 2011

 

i must have sent it down to you ~ thunderstorm here ~ about an hour ago ~ so bad i pulled the aerial out.

26 Aug, 2011

 

Gee thanks! I dont think. We had a cloudburst at Ringwood this morning whilst visiting a garden. We sheltered in the conservatory but the rain was so noisy, we had to shout to make ourselves heard!!

26 Aug, 2011

 

Perhaps it was the other way round - you sent it to us?

27 Aug, 2011

 

Who caused rain to stop play on my front? Won't be back 'til Monday:-(

27 Aug, 2011

 

Monday is bank holiday! Will it rain then too?

27 Aug, 2011

 

Probably:-( Eating cake like mad...feels like autumn:-(
