@pelly I repotted it a few weeks back and started to bud up. Probably should cut it back but think tonight’s frost will do that for me 😂🥶

@hkyfvr thanks Diane ☺️ I’m seeing a very different side of my garden this winter. Usually I cut everything back as soon as the first frost hits but I’ve left it this year and it’s amazing what is still flowering 😜

I left some things and they bloomed long after I thought they would too. My lilies started up again and my primroses and a few more. It was an unusual autumn. I am happy you got to enjoy these long bloomers. Makes the time till Spring seem shorter? 💕💕😊

@hkyfvr sounds like you’ve had a much longer flowering season too! It’s amazing out there, still lots going on. But you’re right, makes that wait for spring a whole lot shorter 😁

And a pretty one at that!! How are you☺️. Gosh I missed a lot of summer. I’ve brought my mother here to Texas with the help of my oldest son. The airlines was great about helping. She’s ok. I just got back. I’ll have to look through your garden. I remember you had some real beauties this year after all that seeding you did, early spring 😊💕

@terrimclaughlin I’ve been wondering how you’re doing. I’m glad to hear your mum is doing ok and must be easier on you having her in Texas rather than you being at hers. It’s lovely to have you back on here ☺️
