According to Mr TG, who for the record is NOT a qualified weatherman, the arrival of the Rudbeckia in the Tidy Garden means autumn’s here.
Mittens, muffs and the central heating system are poised ready for action.
Polo-neck woolly's are being dusted down and wellies buffed.
I’ve given him one of ‘my looks’ but he’s adamant it’s all over…batten down the hatches, take cover…
Two words to summarize…Barking & Mad (you choose the order!)
Meanwhile…I’ve got a few (ahem!) bargain purchases from my Gosmore plant fix / supplier & our local Range store.
The ferns were from the Range (£2.99 each) & a Fatsia (£3 something). The local DIY superstore was selling the Heuchera for £8 & the Rudbeckia for £6, ‘my man’ sells them for less than half those prices. Just shows the enormous mark up. The Buddleia is a dwarf variety & was positively covered in peacock butterflies, even when I was paying for it they were still landing on the deep purple flowers.
Autumn? I’m still in spring-mode!
Have a groovy week everyone.
