its just past its prime but i just didn't get a chance to photo it before now. this has just rocketted in the last 4 years, from being able to put it into the boot of my car along with a few others to this 8footer
bit of a change from the white coloured magnolias which i love too

had a name plate with all these names on it for each bunch of tulips i sowed but the names disappeared leaving behind the little plastic holder. so i don't know the names of these tulips but they are nice

chitting seed potatoes
i left some seed potatoes on the window ledge for about 3 weeks and some others in the brown bag they came in...hoping to sow them at different times.. both of them sprouted to more or less the same extent ironically the ones in the bag had chitted better..i think the process of putting them on the window ledge is probably more of "done thing" than something that is totally necessary. i dont know will i be doing that again in a hurry

this is by far the best this magnolia ha ever looked. maybe its the fine weather i dont know but the blossoms are lasting longer than ever and the number of blooms is also the most i've ever seen on it. beautiful scent too

just wondering about these lads.
i planted a load of these end of last august. so far not a peep out of them. i thought they were meant to be easy. do you think they'll flower still?

this morning i was getting my breakfast in the kitchen and looking out the window i noticed this bird coming to rest on a planter before jumping onto the table.. i grabbed the camera and took a few shots before it flew away. wow was it fast!!!
i'm not sure what it is but i think it looks like a perigrine falcon...any ideas?
we're a hotbed for rabbits around here so maybe it was scouring for prey. i've something similar hover in the air for a long time during the "summer"(remember them?)
