Yucca a better flower

12 June 2017 20:22:01


I have made good progress with the walking. Weather was better than yesterday.  To day, I got the vacuum cleaner out and did a bit of cleaning in the house. Tomatoes and grapes are making good progress, very little sunshine. I planted out some antirrhinums and while I was doing so, my little friend , the robin came along as to say " need something to eat" so i went to the back of the house and brought along some bird seed which he enjoyed. Finally, I took a photo of a yucca which had made quite a bit of progress since I took the photo of the first one.

That Yucca is looking fantastic, Dick. Delighted that you are getting back to yourself again and being able to do more jobs around the house and garden.  I too have a little Robin that's has been following me around the garden since early spring.

Wow, that's a really full flower. So exotic looking.

That's great news about your much improved mobility, Dick.

Great flower on your Yucca. Delighted to hear  you are up and about too.

I'm still waiting patiently for the Yucca you gave me to produce a flower!  Well done on the recovery process.

I got the first yucca from my landlady when I came to Carlow in 1965. I have supplied Yuccas to quite a number of people. If you Hazel would like another any time you pass through Carlow, no problem.
