this nice dark aster is attracting a lot of bees, I have a paler one as well and I think the two colours were cuttings from the same plant?
bee on a dark red sedum
bee on a sedum I think is called Strawberries and Cream
this is Cerinthe minor aurantica 'Bouquet Gold', grown from seed.
a corn cob! not sure it will mature now, the weather is turning cold and this plant is already at a 45º angle due to winds.
the car has returned from the garage, its had two electrical 'thingmys' replaced and they said they 'hoped' this would solve it, I hope so too! I tried to pay for it with my new visa card which embarrasingly wouldn't work, luckily I had my bank card with me too so I paid for it with that, not sure if the bank account will stand up to that kind of abuse. The visa card people have no explanation as to why it didn't work and they want me to go and try it again to see, does this mean I have to keep shopping? I think I am too traumatised by todays expenditure to venture near any shops!!
