It was 4.30 in the morning when I took this!
Sorry for the blurry pics. It was 4.30 am! Hubby was getting up to go on a 50 km walk in preparation for a trip to India.
Is your laurencia(so?) – purple star like flowers- a perenial or annual for you?
I just planted my 1st laurencia last week and unfortunately here it is an annual. Very lovely gardens. Flowers just make me happy:-)
I never knew that they were called laurencia. The funny thing about those is that I never planted them. We have gas central heating and the condenser pipe is right above that spot – it drips hot water (which it is supposed to do), and the next thing these flowers started growing. I don’t know where the roots are and I am afraid to look!They appear every year and I love them. The bees love them also and too which is great. The unfortunate part of all this is that Ali (my dog) hates bees and flies. She is 14 and she will jump up and catch a bee and chew it with her gnashers. She obviously doesn’t like the taste, but that doesn’t stop her. We are forever shouting at her, “Ali, leave those bees alone.”
I’m going to take some more pics today of my hanging baskets. I am very pleased with them. I also have sweet peas that never flowered last year but they look as if something might happen soon. I go out every morning and look at them – it is like watching paint dry.
My Morning Glories died. We had very cold weather in May. I’ll try again next year.
Lovely bit of peace, and good timing. A true breath of fresh calm air. Hugs.
I’m a bit emotional this week. When I posted about the Irish tragedy, I never imagined it would hit this close to home. I imagine I will be a bit of a wreck over the next few days. I passed the local church last night (as I dropped my 18 year old to a party – you can’t keep them wrapped up in cotton wool), and I saw a tree that they had planted for the girls from Loreto, Foxrock with ribbons hanging from the branches. My son worked with their flatmates…how many degrees of separation?
I have to come back and sit in my garden and breathe. Hugs to you too, Uberduck.
What a beautiful garden! I love you doggie cans! Can’t wait to see them in daylight!
You have a clothesline, with things suspended from it, nice.
Don’t try and be nice to me. I have you on my bad list.
Your backyard looks very nice, you did good. But those 2 cans, 5th pic from bottom, what’s up with that. Backyard, look’s like a nice place for a Bar-B-Que, yes.
