Nor quite winter-yet

Look iv still got lots of Cosmos left and Dahlias. I'm not yet ready to embrace Autumn let alone Winter. I`m not a Winter Gal -So when customer come in and ask!no Christmas stock ? I think `hold ya horses` do we want it all NOW!! Well no, lets embrace the tail end of Summer then the Golden leaves and Rusty colours . Perhaps this endless credit crunch talk is making people think early and spread it out or is it just me??

I have laid a new path in the garden to make weeding and life a little easier!
I have had trouble getting to grips with my cutting beds - despite rain and mass slug invasion, i cannot get into straight lines or beds , I'm going to adapt them to curves and jam pack them to get a full look.

A lovely day out

I has a fab day out this week. Went with friends to Petersham Nurseries in Richmond-OHH , lovely stuff and very inspiring great to go somewhere that's minimalist-yawn yawn!! This place Ouses individualism , quirkiness and shabby chic-cor the prices are mega bucks but its free to look! Makes me want to get a greenhouse.
