Columbia Road Market 4

September 20, 2009

After Saturday night’s downpour, the air was cool and clear as I set out for the market. Many more bulbs are in evidence now, but I passed these by wistfully because last year I planted so many and the squirrels ate them all. Instead, for five pounds I bought four Michaelmas Daisy (the feast of Michaelmas is 29th September) to bring some seasonal colour to my border where the Lupins, Penstemons, Astrantia, Gentian and Eryngium have all passed their flowering season. I chose the soft blue that is the most characteristic colour for Michaelmas Daisies and with a bit of luck these will now return year after year.

As you can see, I had company in the garden this morning while planting my Michaelmas Daisies.
