Guess the Plant ...


No prizes, just wondered how many of you know the answer ...

ALSO AVAILABLE IN WHITE ...


And here are a few more photos taken in Mum' gorgeous garden. Considering it was bare ground when she moved in 2½ years ago, she has totally transformed it into a wonderful haven. Not bad for an octogenarian ...





The greenhouse is Mum's but the shed/studio is ours. The variegated private and pittosporum mark the boundary between our 2 gardens. The little stepping stone pathway is designed to make it easy for me to hop over the fence and make my way across the garden! Clever Mummy!







"Geoff Hamilton" didn't seem to mind moving from Northampton and seems to have settled in well!
It just shows what can be achieved if you set your mind to it, doesn't it. All you need is time, enthusiasm and a love of gardening!
There'll be another post a bit later. Something totally different - to include my 'purchase of the month' (well, one of them!!!!)

I'm guessing that it's one of those blue poppies..Mecanopsis.
I am probably way off the mark though! ;-)
