I've always been lucky enough to have a greenhouse where I have lived,
apart from at my very first home in Surrey, where the garden was only
pocket handkerchief sized and would never have accommodated a greenhouse.
I do so love my greenhouse!
It's a little escape for me
and I could prick out plants til the cows come home!
This morning, I've been busying myself....
So far, for next year,
I've got Foxgloves, Hollyhocks, Primroses, Pansies, Poppies,
Ox Eye Daisies and a variety of others.
Many of these were seeds which I shook from saved, dried, seed heads
...and some were from bought packets from
Thompson and Morgan.
I bought all my Tulip and Narcissi bulbs from them too and
have always received excellent service.
I can't wait to get down on my hands and knees and plant
my bulbs but I'm reluctant to do so as I don't want to clear my
lovely borders just yet!
It's what's going on in the garden that's confusing me to bits!
It's almost October.
Apart from the fact that I have come inside, sweating streams - it is like mid July
today - there are some strange things going on in my garden.
I still have Foxgloves in bloom.
I still have Sweet William flowers.
I have Lupins JUST coming into bloom!
I have Godetia JUST flowering.
And the Anthirrinums are a picture!
I can't work it out at all!
My garden appears to be defying convention right now.
But I'm not complaining!
The seasons are strange though!
Fingers crossed that this lovely weather continues !
