Lovely colour David. You have to give somebody a cutting as an insurence policy.  It works quite well for me and my 'neighbouring' gardener. She has more shade in her garden and seems successful with all her cuttings.

Despite the heavy rain we have been having for the last couple of weeks this salvia is still producing flowers. It is a recent buy so I still have to see how it will be over winter. It is similar in flower colour to S. 'Dyson's Joy' which I tried with but failed. The flowers are larger, though, and the leaves a bit fleshier. Or maybe that is just because it was pampered in a nursey? I hope I will be able to write again next spring with news that it has survived winter.
What a little sweetie!

We have 2 bushes of Murraya paniculata and they are both beginning to burst into bloom with their strongly scented flowers.

We are suffering deluges most days at the moment so time to catch up on inside jobs is definitely the order of the day.😕
Good for the garden though suppose😊

No morning walk today 'cos I think it's raining. Not absolutely certain as it's been such a long time since I've seen any that it's something of a distant memory.  :-\
