The anemone Bordeaux that I raved about earlier has been trying to flower for over a month, they were only planted a couple of months ago. The first flowers got hit by the weather but the last two days has allowed a few to open fully. The photo does not depict the maroon colour but the blue is very true to form. Another plant I love is Phormium Guardsman, it is so tall and the name so apt. Very slow to spread which is a pity.

Lovely day the first real garden day withoug feeling the cold . I have one large swathe of a very nice pink Kaffir Lily and decided to remove some as they were taking over.  Well I had never realised how extensive the root system is , billions of thin roots with an interesting pattern of brown segment, white segment, brown and so on. From each bit of root a new plant arises amazing. It will be very hard to clear the ground of root pieces no  it will be impossible. Meanwhile I have hundreds of plants looking for a new home. If any Cork iers are interested and care to call you are most welcome. Of course all iers are welcome to them if you want me to keep them for you.

Planted 12 Lilies in pots yesterday, today the rats had eaten them all !!! I will have to make chicken wire covers for the pots as this is not the first time I have lost lots of lilies.

Hellebores again!

I seem to have quite a lot by now which is great but am disappointed with the 'Magnetic Blue' one which still looks a ' bit sorry it came' !  Maybe it just needs more time to settle in and decide this is not such a bad place to live. Just three here, love the yellow one.
