It's February and I spent a good while dead-heading today.

Please don't tell me that your Alstromeria is flowering at this time of year??????

As usual, they're gorgeous. I lost all mine last year. But you gave me a seedling late last year. Must check on it tomorrow.

Lovely bright one. A real summery photo!

I have no flowers but plenty of growth.

Isn't it just madness, Jacinta? The last 2 winters the Alstroemeria completely died back but this winter it's just kept on going.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 01 February 2012 23:24:40

Yes. Madness is the only word to describe it. It is totally amazing that it, of all plants, is flowering in Feb.

Quite cold to day Rachel to do work like that.
