last gardening question of this year, promise

I promise this is the last , what is it, from the garden this year. LOL
We have had this fern like plant with a thick reddish main stem, it now appears to have flower buds appearing.
We think it must have come out of a packet of annuals that were sown early this year, there was no list of contents on the packet, so we are again having problems saying which plant it is.

Bearst wishes

new view of back garden, tree gone


Here is the new vista of our back garden, the tree that has been causing damage to our property has now been removed.

The great news is that the birds are still coming into the garden for their food.

Balmy temperatures

Firstly thank you to everyone who email and solved our flower problem, we now know what it is.

We are currently having very unseasonal temperatures, on the 1st Oct it was 29C, and we are supposed to be in autumn.

As the photo shows even the goldfinches are getting confused, thinking a house is a tree and attaching themselves to the wall.

I have had to suspend making creations until the weather gets cooler, it is impossible to handle fabric with very sweaty hands, thankfully this very hot spell is due to end in a couple of days.
