On the home front the last couple of days I have been moving pot plants around, taking some around the back of the garden to see out the next few months and setting out the winter flowering plants.

  4. Thanks again for shining your generous spotlight on my reviews, Sally, and for a great week of posts. I especially love the photos from your garden. Our flowers aren’t doing too well here because we’ve had some pretty cold nights, but It’s nice to get out there and dream and plan for next year’s garden.
