Thanks Shelia! I had to go out and take some pics because it is such an awful dark, windy, cold, and sometimes wet day! Cheered me up to see this though!

Aah, what memories of summer - but not this year eh?

11 Sep, 2011

 

No! It's a sore point Sheila...so sad! Still, only about 7 weeks now until I go to Tenerife!! :)))))))))

Something to look forward to. Just think of us in the cold when you're packing your shorts etc. ;)

Ach...sorry Sheila...we should ALL go! Goyers unite in a weather protest and all leave the country together to do guerilla gardening on the Costas!

But...sometimes the colours are quite different on dull days, don't you think, KS? Especially blues and purples...
...7 weeks left? Perfect! By then you'll be speaking the lingo like a native!

lol....I'm still at the 'Janet and John' stage!And yes, I love the way that the darker light brings out some colours....this pinky colour looks great in the gloom!

....been at the bevvy already K? ;))) Bit early for me, but if the wind gets really bad, and I get really scared.....well, then it's game on! ;))

I love my one like this, pity it's too high on the slope to sniff though. I hope it doesn't get so bad that you have to hit the sloe gin AM hun!

Nope 12.37pm and I'm still sober! lol ....actually it's not too bad at the moment, though it's definitely getting stronger. I've been out though and done my shopping and what not, so I can stay indoors now!

It pulled the Solanum off my front porch last night.

Oh, I found tiny solanums....2 for £6 at Dobbies, so I bought 2 and planted them to grow up other trees...one on the photinia red robin and one on the cytisus, the pineapple broom tree....should look lovely on them I think....if they manage to push their roots down...worth a try.

Mine were all very small, two came from Sainsburys! The front one will be ok when it's tied back up.

12 Sep, 2011

 

Yup, stronger twine!

Oh Karen, this is worth adding to the Wishlist for September colour, thanks :-)

Eh? Only had coffee...was that not Spanish??
I know...should have been 'y' not 'e'...... :)
