Hippeastrum + 3

Hippeastrum + 3

I put this up last week with one flower open.

So today all 3 are out I had to use an old wire hanger to keep it in place .

Got a little gardening done I planted my new tree Acacia which I am delighted with as I went for a walk after and what did I see only Acacia tree and so big nearer to the beach then us and people kept telling me it will not survive Oh I hope I am right sowing it . But time will tell.

I always wanted one as  our Daughter had a beautiful one.

Lovely Hippeastrum Clara, and best of luck with the Acacia.....

Just googled Acacia and there it was growing beside the sea, lovely tree and should do well in your sheltered garden.

Beautiful, Clare. Lovely against that colour background.

If it's acacia dealbata you mean Clare I have good news and bad news.  The bad is that I lost 7 or 8 mature mimosas over the two bad winters.  The good, I suppose is that they are re-sprouting from the roots, however where they were I need screening and as they're not fit for that purpose if they're going to die back in freak weather I'm going to finish them off.
