@flof1952 - Good morning Pauline! It is a bit dry here too, but at least the gardens have drained away the excess of water we've had since before Christmas! I'm hoping that the cold snap avoids us completely! Have a great day too! 😀

Good morning GTers! Garden is slowly closing down for the year but I was hopeful of getting one more #delphinium before winter set in! I think the frost may have foiled it this morning though! Have a great day everyone! 😀

Good afternoon everyone! Would never have thought that the small #delphinium plug plants I purchased a couple of months ago from Hayloft would flower this year - but here is the proof, and I've got another half dozen plants in bud! I'm chuffed to bits! 😀 #rainbow #purple
