Brugmansia still going strong!

23 June 2017 08:28:32

I've had this Brugmansia about 4 years now. But this year, what with everything else going on, I've kind of neglected it, just giving it plenty of water and one feed so far. But yesterday I spotted two flower buds. Happy Days!

Aruncus is looking exceptionally well in my mini Jurassic Border at the moment, and in particular in the second photo against a shady background.

I love that plant, looks great there!

Lack of variegation

22 June 2017 02:48:18

How would a Rose with variegated leaves revert to green, could anyone tell me. That has been the case with my Rosa 'Best Wishes'. Apart from its gorgeous two-tone flowers, it was the variegated leaves that finally sold it to me a few years ago. I'm a bit puzzled by this one.

It's still such a pretty rose though.

How foolish am I!  After scrolling back through old journals, I realise that in fact, this is R. 'Sheila's Perfume'. That would definitely explain its lack of variegated leaves. LOL

It's nice to get the odd comment on journals. So I might as well do it myself seems that there's nobody else here. LOL

Plant Id Please

21 June 2017 04:47:19

When Gretta and I visited Mary and Paddy two years ago, I was kindly given this little plant by Mary. The only gap in my borders at the time was down beside my Eupatorium 'Joe Pyeweed'. Rather a silly place for it as we all know how large Joe grows. However, I spotted it yesterday and the only thing I can think of is a Sisyrinchium. Maybe Mary can confirm please.

It's a cute little thing, and as soon as it has gone over it will be relocated to a more suitable spot before Joe Pyeweed smothers it completely.

Nice little thing, no can name though ;(

Pond life

20 June 2017 20:21:35

I always get such a kick out of spotting Dragonflies/Damselflies. I have been rather too busy with family commitments recently. So I finally got to see my first one today hovering over the greenhouse pond. I think it's a male Blue-tailed Damselfly.

I get very few visitors which suprises me thought they would like my pond. Got some more pond plants recently so maybe that will lure them in,
