Mine are nearly over now. The last few are popping at present.

These knapweeds (not a very fair name :() are much beloved by the bees and are just coming into their own now. These are from the packet of wild flower seeds I sowed in, I think, 2016 !! Worth waiting for :rolleyes:.

I am very impressed with your Knapweed. Any think that grows from little packets of seed is a triumph in my book. :nod:

Nature is very confused at present. It had forgotten that occasionally the UK has a hot summer :nod:

Whether caused by the snow last winter or the heatwave this summer my rowan tree has never been so bowed down with berries.
Such signs are sometimes read as harbingers of doom but maybe this bumper crop is merely the reflection of events past.

Aaaanyway, Place Your Orders Now for our upcoming speciality ... Rowan Berry and Oxo HB.
Ready for Christmas :nod:
