The Korean pine is looking very interesting just now. All the new baby cones look like soldiers standing to attention. The remnants of two of last year's cones and two of the previous year are also seen.

Also a photo looking up into a Cryptomeria.

I have a very soft spot for Pines.

Not the name of a new plant!  I showed photos previously of the first process in making a new set of steps. A few days ago the steps were cemented, this time I did not mix the cement but got help. But I was standing by as each step was filled clutching a tray of pieces of yellow and blue cups that I had hammered into small bits to make a sort of mosaic on each step.  It worked out quite well but having to work fast , accuracy was not at its best!  I still have to decide what colour to paint the wood and also I hope the whitish patches in the cement will leach out in time.

Also a photo of Pulmonaria Benediction looking very well at the moment , as are the little Rip Van Winkle daffodils.

Happy St Patricks Day to you all.

If you visit me, I found an Alligator in the garden today, lying on the wall. He seemed a bit short in the dental area so I gave him some more teeth.

What a fabulous day , wonderful and hope it was the same for you all. The third picture is to put on record the first day of 14 when the sky and the water were blue.

Friendly fire??
