random stuff about me - mostly truth or lies - both or neither - about me though - it's always about me -

My garden this year has turned out pastel, something I planned for last year but seems to have been late arriving. It's a mixture of pale pinks, whites, subtle blues, and pale violets - mauve as the used to call it. of course there a few splashes of colour from the warmer end of the spectrum, but these seem only to emphasise the delicate nature of the planting and of course there are still lilies and then suflowers to come.
I can't take credit though, it seems to have happened organically all on its own with minimal direction. This year has been an experiment with my pound shop bulbs and cuttings from last year's daisy Chrysanthemums It's worked though and I am astounded just how well the iris, lilies, anemones, and begonias have done. Boring aren't I.
