Spring Time Glory

 These Cactus Blooms lasting only 2 days have been magnificent this year.  I had 12 blooms over a period of 2 weeks and the evening scent was delicious.

Report Time



 Writing Reports . . . and November in my garden

November is my best garden month

 The poppies this year have been amazing.  So many different colours I have collected over the years.  They make a great display.
 The iris's have also been fantastic.  There is a different picture to look at everyday.

 . . . and more flowers

 I've had this cactus for around 20 years and it has only ever given me one flower for the last 2 years.  I was going to repot it this year, when I noticed 12 buds coming.  The other day I had 5 flowers out at once and it was truly magnificent.  The scent was divine and I'm glad I raced over to get my neighbour to share it with, as they only last 2 days.  Those 5 have gone now, but another 3 are about to pop with the next sunny day.

The Garage Sale that was . . .

 Last Saturday was the Garage Sale Hoorah!
A massive clean out at mum and dads of a "lifetime of treasures"
There were garden magazines, in categories!

 It was like "Selfridges" with departments!
 and that plants . . . oh the plants . . .
If only I'd lived closer - I did manage to squeeze a few in my little car!

 A very BIG WEEKEND and a final good-bye
 We even had music playing while we set up on the Friday.  Miss Flowergarden belting out a tune on the veranda overlooking the farm.
