Good evening all! I've finally recovered from my cellulitis and have spent the whole day in the garden - freezing myself half to death! Got lots of bulbs planted and all of my annuals pulled out! Garden is now nearly ready for its winter sleep! 😀 #cosmos

@nessas @juliesgarden - Thanks Vanessa and Julie! I'll try not to but not having been able to get into the garden for a couple of weeks it was tempting to try and get everything done at once! 😀

Good evening Ian. I'm glad you're feeling better and back in your garden. I know cellulitis can be a terrible thing to have.

Good morning all! This #white #cosmos is the first flower to come from the seeds I sowed way back in the first week of April! A very satisfying sight! Have a great start to the week everyone! 😀

Good morning GTers! Looks like my #cosmos are about ready to be moved on! Not sure whether to pot them on or plant them straight out! Surely we've seen the last of the frosts?

Morning @bigemrg! I planted mine straight out yesterday, they look happy enough! If we have another frost then I'm emigrating!! ☀️🌻
