Time for more colour
August always feels like the month when the light returns. It's 6 weeks past the shortest day and there is a good 1/2 hour more of sunlight at the end of the day.
Today I went to Mitre 10 after work and bought some plants to put in my hanging baskets. I can never go past pansies. They are one of my favourite plants. I also got some dianthus for a bit of height. That's a lot more fun than weeding!
