Neofinetia falcata ''Omojahwan''
Bit busy day.First Liam ask me for help,with sowing.Did what i had to do,and went out to help,after some couple hours Brian(Jemo) come to rescue me from all that slave work :))(I'm joking Liam is good boss:)).So Brian came,and we went in for caffee,before he opened boot and there was wonderful hostas and red leaved rheum and kniphopia and agaphantus for me.Thank you,very much,must make new flower bed now.After caffee went out to garden,and there was lunch time almost over when Brian went home.
Today sowed 2 tipes of peonie's seeds,what i had in fridge for 9 weeks,in moist grit,and trillium mix too. Will see how it helps to peonies to gereminate.
And today after waiting so long my orchid Neofinetia falcata ''Omojahwan''
opened first flower buds.It call also Japanese Wind orchid or Samuray orchid.It have rich history.If you wan't know more,there is bit info:http://botanyboy.org/category/neofinetia-falcata/

Primula auricula ''Rajah''
At this windy day,we went to Beaulieu hause and garden,for rare plant fair.We it mean-me,Violeta,Liam and Niki.Poor Niki and Liam was so bored, weather too wasn't nice.And nothing to do for kids.Met there Jemo(Brian) and his lovely family,and Rhody(Robert) with wife.Thanks to Rhody,we with Violeta get some new plants.When we finish with plants,went to waled garden.If Andy sait it was nice,,i disagree,i think it was nice some 5 years ago,right now it was left on it self...pity,there was some nice plants in.All what they needed good hand and care.
So i got:
Rhododendron ''Lady alice fitzwilliam'' scent really is heavenly
Oxalis Enneaphylla Rosea
Primula auricula ''Rajah''
Dicentra ''Burning hearts''
After all,we went to Violetas for caffee,,and see her little and pretty garden :))
