Well a fat lot of good all the consultation with the equestrian centre has done, they believe they have done 'everything practicable' and have resubmitted the planning application!!! I presume by 'everything' that 2 letters, 2 switch on of lights and one meeting plus altering the angle of the lights is everything?? We shall hit the council now!!!!!!
I had my first home grown tomato
its called Black Cherry, and it has lovely thin skins and boy what a taste, definately recommended!
Some of my Brugmansias have come into flower and I only wish you could smell them
This is one of my new ones Brugmansia Herzenbrucke the scent is unbelieveable
I am a little disappointed with the colour, but presume its because it is a young plant. It should look like this
This is my good old faithful, which has been flowering none stop through all the rain
and the beautiful Sanguinea
I am having a right old battle with the slugs, they adore Brugmansias and off course this lovely wet weather has helped them breed prolifically. So I am sad to say I have had to revert to slug pellets + I have pots of salted water around the garden and I now do an early morning and late evening patrol with a large shovel!!!
The air at night recently has become suddenly very autumnal, well thats what my tropical plants are telling me, I have recorded 6C and some of them are suffering! We are in the process of re-doing part of the patio, it was a matter of having to, we have a down pipe that all the rain water from the flat roofs goes down to a soak away, it is ridiculous, so we have bought an extremely large water butt which is currently being installed, sadly I had to dig up my caster oil plant, I was surprise how small the root was for such a big plant, anyway it has been replanted and as I always say 'it has two chances'.
Fortunately I am away for a few days, I say fortunately because it will make me rest my back as I have done far too much yet again and its twitching!! I'm off with Tori to visit my sister, I shall be leaving the workers to fend for themselves!!!!
