    • So glad to hear that the table tennis went well; superb!

      Although Autumn seemed to have arrived, the temperature rose incredibly today – and it was fairly humid too. It’s nice to have a little warmth again – a more gentle heat.

    • They are a Japanese hybrid which flower during late Summer, early Autumn. I have a couple in the garden which flower reliably each year. There are many different varieties of anemone, some of which (anemone nemerosa) flower late Winter, early Spring, and others which flower late Spring.
