Lupinus arboreus & Euphorbia mellifera

Lupinus arboreus & Euphorbia mellifera

I got out and at it again today and am pleased with the progress I'm making.

I came in in the end because I got bored rather than tired.

It's wonderful to see so many borderline plants survive - the tree lupin and Euphorbia pictured, among others.

Other normally troublesome tenders seem to have come through too - echiums, arctotis, Clianthus, tetra.We could get spoilt!

Isn't it great to be reporting what has seen this winter out, instead of the winter seeing the plants out.

Well done.

How in Gods name can you get bored in a garden of your calibre?

I love your Euphorbia , and your Lupin.

Exactly, Fran. I could get used to it :)

Jacinta & Scrubber, weeding is boring no matter what your garden is like and I never like it.

Thanks, Anne & Clare.
