    I wasn't expecting to be cutting flowers in December, but went to the allotment today and found some stragglers of alstromeria, verbena bonariensis, calendula, convolulvus tricolor, geum, snapdragon, poppy, daisy, wallflower, virginian stock and cerinthe. There were even a couple of sweet peas still in flower!

    Gorgeous WPG. The only stragglers I have are Valerian and snap dragons but they a looking a bit ropey.

    Last weeks more chrysanths - coral reef, downpour and shenkyo (sp?)

    No flowers this week - start of the wreaths and bits.

    I have wallflowers, primroses, penstemon and salvia and loads of fuchsias and camellia. Probably more too but this is just from memory!
