Bigging Up Begonias

I’ve been very impressed with these trailing Begonia ‘Illumination’ from Thompson & Morgan. They were tiny plugs retailing at £11.00 for 40 plants. The petunias I generally use in baskets are usually going to seed in early August, but these beautiful Begonias are still flowering their socks off. Incidentally, the blousey female flowers grow larger still if the single petalled male flowers are removed as they begin to flower.

I Don’t Like Monday…

But I did like last night’s sunset, which incidentally, is getting frighteningly earlier….!

Sunday shots…

Visited this beautiful little garden in Ferndown, Dorset today. What it lacked in size it more than made up for with diversity and number of plants.

Comprising a ‘his’ and ‘hers’ garden; his exotic, her’s cottage, it proved to be a real gem.

Holey Moley!

No matter how hard we try our best in the garden, there are things completely outside of our control which can leave us exasperated.

This beautifully maintained lawn was fit to play croquet on (does anyone actually play croquet) until the antics of Mr Mole put paid to that.

C’est la vie folks. Live and let live!
