The greenhouse border is looking well at the moment. It has the wildlife pond in the centre. The border is split up into two main sections - the 'hot' colours closest to the patio, the further down the garden it has mainly pinks, blues and lilacs. It's looking lovely at the moment with Oxalis, Persicaria, Sedum, and ready-to-open Nerine bowdenii.

Looking good!

What ever you have growing in the pond gives a lovely background to the planting. The oxalis is not the prettiest of flowers, but a great old work horse, never fails to flower and will grow in dreadful soil.

Those are great plants, Jacinta, and very labour-saving.

Ah Mary, you have me all upset now. LOL. I love Oxalis. Very pretty flower, and even prettier foliage. :)

Thanks, ladies.

I'm with Jacinta in this - I remember the plain pink Oxalis in my grandmother's garden - we used to eat the leaves which we called "juicies" - and my children followed suit in my garden! That one in the photo, "Iron Cross" is particularly pretty in my book - but I haven't tried eating the leaves yet LOL
