Indian Summer?

It's coming towards the end of the season and although the Gunnera still looks magnificent it is beginning to show signs of wear and tear. A little more pruning will be required before the final cover up begins next month.

It's been five weeks ... now look at it!

Yes its been five weeks since the last posting. Time flies!  I thought I'd leave it a while so that you could see how well the Gunnera had grown in the warmth and the wet. And I have thrown in a couple of pics of the Common Spotted Orchid too.
