These were sown at the end of october (I think) and are looking good and healthy in a sturdy sort of way. I've pinched out the little tops to make them branch out (thus more flowering stems), and given them a good drink this morning.
This little pot sits on the front step - I actually bought one this year, as it turned out cheaper than buying the plants and filling one of my own pots; I love the cheerful colours at this time of the year.
Don't laugh - I took a photo of the washing on the line! Backlit by the winter sun, the colours were lovely, reminding me a bit of Tibetan prayer flags...........
This is what is still left of the apple mountain, but another couple of buckets of cottage cider and a couple of gallons of apple wine should see it off LOL
This stunning bark is on one of the betuals (birch) but I can't remember the rest of its name; a tall and slender tree, lovely in summer when it's in full leaf, and very very beautiful in winter, as this picture demonstrates.
So - that's wahat's happening in my garden today. :)
