Well this is nice, it’s the 150th post and it will be the 1st birthday of the blog towards the end of the month. I’m still posting fairly often and there’s still so much to talk about and so much that seems to go on in my tiny garden. I feel as though I should write some sort of review, or something meaningful but I am a bit tired with work and preparing for the coming autumn and winter.
Since many people prefer pictures, here’s the first flower head on the monster sunflower that a little bird planted.
While the flower head isn’t in proportion with the size of the plant, there are several more heads that will open soon, like some sort of hydra-beast.
In other news, there’s been lots of work with sowing the autumn batch of seeds (another five seeds trays), the seeds sown in summer are coming along nicely, a picture of the Gaura will be appearing soon (someone requested this a little while back). There has also been a whole series of potting on of seedlings from cell trays into larger pots and I got a surprise delivery of 36 winter flowering pansies, which were a freebie thrown in because I bought so much seed. Generally there’s been a lot of work to do in the garden and I’m needing the street lights more often to keep up.
