Getting seedlings planted
For the last week or so I've been planting my babies in various containers and in my newly extended flower bed. This afternoon I went into sink or swim mode, sticking things into any available space as I'm off to Inis Meain tomorrow for a week. Hopefully there will be lots of wild flowers to see and take photos of and I'll put some up when I get back.

This one's doing really well
This Streptocarpus (Cape Primrose) was still flowering a t the beginning of December and it's way better than any of the others again now!

Came down yesterday morning to discover that one Amaryllis had taken a nose dive. I tried splinting it--before breakfast!--but it didn't seem to work so I've cut off the bloom now and put it in water.

Anyone know what this is?
Bought a bargain in Woodie's today, 79c down from 2.99, But the man couldn' t remember what it was. Any suggestions? It's a perennial and quite small.
