I have not put up photos recently, so now I am puttinhg up 22. Some of these have been put up before, but perhaps the new images are an improvement, others are not great but are put up for 'record purposes', as I am tryiung to catalogue all my plants.
I am grateful to Myrtle for giving me the Arctotis and for naming the Melaleuca.
Some of the plants have particular memories for me, as I received them from friends or bought them on gardening trips.
Does anyone know the complete names for the lily and Eryngium?
I like the Abutilon, as I got it on a gardening visit years ago to the Malvern Garden Show.

Another mystery solved
I am trying to name the plants in my garden and there are some I have been unable to answer, even with all you help.
However I was delighted to be able to get another one named by Myrtle.
She recognised the plant as a Melaleuca, which is in the Myrtaceae family. I looked through all the species of Melaleuca in Hillier's Manual and the closest seemed gibbosa. This was confirmed by looking at Google images.
There are still a few unknowns, but I hope to resolve these soon, especially the trees and shrubs.
I am very grateful for all the help I am getting here.

Recently I have not been gardening much, due partially to the weather, but this morning I got out for a while and enjoyed the work. But here are not too many plants coming into flower now, but the hebes and eryngiums are growing well.
If you would like to have a look at my garden next Tuesday at 11 am , please let me know.
