Autumn Torch

From Pats Garden, A rain drenched Pot Marigold or Calendula besides the Dusty miller. I watched ground force doing a nursing homes garden. Alan Titchmarsh said that older eyes see bright yellows and Oranges easier than other colours!
Mum had these in our first Cheltenham garden, and they self seeded magnificently. I always tried to transplant them around the garden. I like their claw like seeds which just need the soil turned to germinate them. They must be one of the longest lasting seeds that will germinate years after being produced.
No good news on the house. The Snappy one is being forced to stay untill December. The best laid plans of Mice and men...
