While I'm not mad about the flowers on the rue plant, it looks quite nice in front of the holly. I grow it for its glaucous foliage, very like Coronilla.

I planted some Freesia bulbs in pots in the greenhouse and fed some orchids. That's my lot for the day.

Oh nice combination - i know I might be a bit slow but what is the reference at the end of your journal??

Don't tell me your Rue is gone, Liga. This is the plant you gave me!

Tony, hubby informs me that he will be using it for culinary purposes this year.

Mary, that's for my reference only - to do with orchid care.
