The white begonias have not faded, I moved them to this bed a week ago, I hope they will grow as well as the red ones, both are bedding plants and should die off each winter, but these red ones have been here for 2 years. I cut back the geranium last spring, so I won't do anything this year, it should fill the middle section next summer. These will keep flowering until the frost comes.
These forget-me-nots are behind the 2 long pots, which sit in the front of my raspberry patch, years ago I had strawberries in these pots, but the bugs ate them, now I grow flowers, soon I will pop in my homegrown pansies. The base of the raspberries always look scruffy, so I am hoping the forget-me-nots fill the lower levels, so far they are not ate by the slugs.
My pots are looking good, they have all rooted, each pot has loads of grit in the bottom allowing good drainage, these plants will survive the cold, but hate having wet roots. The plants in the ground are slower to root, I am hoping I get ground cover, this area is heavy clay and most plants don't thrive here.
Our blackberry harvest is almost over, we have had tons this year, I have cut back some of the branches, I don't like it too bushy along the side of the garage, encouraging it to grow around the shed where I have an arch.
We are planning to cover this table and chairs soon, so I am enjoying this small display, I will move it one our green metal table, which stays out all year, but I can't see that so well from my chair inside.
I have finished the second blanket for daughter to take for the fundraiser for Portsmouth Downs Syndrome, I did loads over the weekend. I had 2 very lazy days, Saturday with hubby, Sunday on my own. Other than news I don't think I watched any TV, I've not started a new book, in fact it has been a boring few days. I did start this scarf, I have made the design before, infact 3 times, I don't need to look at the instructions at all, it's an enjoyable knit, which is just what I need, my last finish was here.
