Just for you Lushy...




I'll try to get some of Open day... the Infant schools 36 should be all out by then and the ones along my boundary... as you come into the site like in my signature pic thing...

The infants are having a "competition" some are already over 7'

I've got a border of giants, tallest measured today was 10' 3"......I'd mixed up my saved seeds and thought these were the little red ones, to be about 4'.  They've overshaded my plot, rustle so much I keep thinking someone is there, but they at least have provided support for my outdoor toms.  Should manage to feed a fair few birds this winter!

Lovely, Dave. Mine are only about 4ft high so hope I get some flowers before autumn sets in!
We were a couple of weeks too late to see them at their best in France - still the odd field though- lovely!
