This came in the post,
a coaster, which apparently reminded two very unkind
Canadian bloggers of me.
I realise that making fun of fellow bloggers
safely, from a distance,
is relatively easy;
had you been close at hand,
I might have used the rake with violent intent.
My polka-dotted dress
is strictly Sunday best;
For the garden
I prefer tartan.
Just to prove that I may be down but most certainly not out, I'll let you have a look at three beauties which are brightening up this dreary season of grey skies. For the first time in my long and distinguished gardening career, I have a second flush of delphiniums. It's a big enough clump to take a bunch inside and still have plenty left for seconds and thirds. I have no idea how I did it.
Cotinus and spirea do what they are doing at the moment most years, I can't claim any special powers for their magnificent display.
