My poor neglected blog!
So much has happened since September......
Mum had a fall and needed an emergency op for a replacement hip....
I got flu..... again!!!
My back has been giving me serious problems...
So for a catch up in September..
lots of beautiful flowering dahlias, I started getting the greenhouse ready
and the arid bed was still enjoying lovely mild weather
was spent 'oop north' with my mum and I didn't get back until the end of the month.
When I got back it became obvious that Tango had deteriorated and sadly the decision was made and he was put to sleep.
Such a fabulous cat, with such personality, sadly missed.
I took this photo at the end of October and as you can see the garden is still looking good.
The Arid bed was covered,
since this photo, we have altered how it is attached to the fence. I'm using elastic woggles so there is give when the wind blows
it is working really well.
Lots of colour in the garden, I love this Acer such a stunning red.
My neighbours Pyracantha.
The passion flower went nuts this year and we had lots of these fruits.
So here we are November 10th and my 'nanas' are still out. This is the latest I have ever left them out. It has been so mild that I felt they where better left out than in a humid greenhouse.
We have had a lot of rain and wind just recently and you can see that this Hiniba has started to 'yellow' around the edge of the leaves.
I have found when we have strong winds at this time of year this usually warrants a change in weather.
So this Friday is the day, when we do the big dig and get the plants into the greenhouse. We could probably last a bit longer, but I have to have help to get these in and hubby has a half day.
