Beautiful! Smile I really love the daisies/asters. What a fabulous colour, what variety are they? I am looking for some new autumn colour for my garden

I've no idea what they are, Sue. I got them in a bucket from an old lady who said they were spreading in her garden. If you're ever down this way, you're welcome to some divisions. (She had called them Michaelmas Daisies but they're not.)

They may well be 'Michaelmas daisies'. A whole load of daisy flowers have been lumped into that bracket over the years. They are lovely though, and I also like the idea that they spread so readily. The ones I have ( mainly unnamed 'Michaelmas' daisies) seem very reluctant to spread - it may be they don't like where they are? Confused

At least our local map doesn't have 'here be serpents' warnings! Laughing

Your local map has nothing on it but bog symbols, takes a rare breed to eke out a living there! Sure what lives in acidic water anyway?

That's the weird thing. Our ground isn't acidic - too much lime in the past.

Sorry for the thread hijack KS

Great photos, as usual, KS! I particularly like the poolside one - you can almost feel the coolness of an autumn morning coming off the water.

Well, Mairead, you'll have to call in. Ring the bell on the intercom. Or PM me for my mobile number. Cool Amazing you pass by because we're on a by-road off a by-road on the road to nowhere. Smile

Thank you Kindred Spirit, I used to live near you (in the village) a good few years ago. I pass by on my way to visit my parents on Saturdays.
