Amazing Amarillis

Amazing Amarillis

I am amazed at my amarillis, it did not flower at Christmas, only leaves and then I noticed a few weeks ago that there was a flower bud coming up, three weeks later I have this, I think there is a second flower bud also coming up. Anyone else had a summer flower amarillis?  I am delighted.

I put my cucumbers out on the patio because I was afraid they were not being pollinated!  I could self pollinate but not 100% sure how!

Lots of weeding to do this week after I neglected my garden last week!

Cucumber taking over!

I have my cucumber plants in the sunroom and they are hugh now, not the cucumbers though they are tiny, any hints on stunting the plants and making the cucumbers grow.  I did put three plants in pots outside and they have been blown to bits so I think I will leave the indoor ones inside.

Cut the back grass today and stayed away from the bees - two days later my wrist is still swollen and very itchy!

Planted out half my mexican sunflowers yesterday, the seed of which Bill gave me (glad to see you are back to yourself!), I also planted out some cornflower annuals and some more poppys, my poppy pink dawn which I planted out last week are looking a bit sad so I hope they come on!

Was dead heading my lupin this morning and a bee decided he wanted me to stay away but I decided I was bigger than he was so I continued, when I was on the last one he decided he was bigger and stung me!!!! Ouch!  Here is my lupin after it was deadheaded, I was amazed at how many new flowers were on it.
