If you plant the most popular plants in your garden in the UK, you will have flowers until the end of July and then not much. Michael spent a lot of effort selecting plants that would flower from August to November and, this year, the garden had a blank period in July and has suddenly burst into flower. There's the hibiscus and a few feet away is a carpet of lavender blue convolvulus mauritanicus.
There is a splendid hydrangea called 'Wisley White'
And to its left, a planting of agapanthus backed by a herbaceous clematis. And a rather good pot filtched from Ruth's Purley house fiver years ago and which she has been inquiring about now she is back here. Mine!! All mine!!
And a photo of the patio looking rather good. Everywhere you look in the garden, there are shrubs in flower, especially fuschias. Of course it is probably all the rain we have had. Fuschias like a lot of water. On the textile front, I have actually been weaving on the Megado and have finished the 2012 Xmas cards. I have cleaned upstairs and put things away. And answered lots of emails. I am here for the next four weeks with not much in the way of commitments so I aim to finish off the Megado warp.
