Really thrilling flower update


Just thought I'd let you know that with all the warm weather we've been having, our window box has been doing rather well. The big plant in the middle is even threatening to flower again after getting heartily microwaved this summer. Don't ask me what it is called. (It's an Aster. Thanks Mum). I have no idea what any of them are called...


...apart from the lavender.  I've bought some - again - and despite usually having really awful luck with them, I'm hoping that this one will be happy in its own pot, kept relatively dry (the others were together with the other flowers and just mouldered away).


I think a window box really changes the outlook of a window, and I'm hoping to have flowers well into the autumn. Hope's a good thing, right?

It's an aster... and the one on the left is French Lavender(or Stoechus.

Both will survive some drought, but the lavender hates the wet and cold...
