The plant I'm thinking of had swollen glaucous succulent/cacti type branching stems and from time to time it'd put out the little leaves.  Definitely not hardy.  

Early plants appearing?

I usually find grape hyacinth leaves appearing in the autumn - they seem to flower in the spring perfectly normally.

Well, I found something else to do - our bedroom has had a thorough dust, polish, hoover etc, and the big wardrobe has had a sort out ... it was worth it ... my lovely and almost brand new coat had been shoved to the back a couple of years ago as it was too tight - I'd been feeling a bit optimistic when I bought it .... 

Yay!!!  It fits with room to spare!!!  

And the necklace and wrap I treated myself to and then lost and thought I must have dropped the bag in the multi-storey car park ... I found that bag inside another one which had been put away 'cos it was a nice bag and I thought it might come in useful some time 

Maybe I should do h*wk more often

I recognise the second plant - there was a huge one at my children's primary school and lots of the children (mine included) brought home rooted cuttings from time to time - can't for the life of me remember what it was called though   (although the word 'candle' keeps coming to mind)

Am I right in thinking those wonderful pink minarets are flowering spikes?  Hope the owner has done some propagating.

Another new garden

Great to be happy in your work Bulkerb  

Wonky Womble is joining the ranks of those who get paid (albeit not a fortune) for doing what they love.

Looking forward to progress reports

Right, found where the rat bait stuff is ... behind a stack of large paintings ... not risking moving those ... my shoulder's so much better this morning I don't want to do myself any harm.  My bet is that the cover for the wooden bench is on those shelves too - better make OH a list of jobs for this evening.  

The rain is really heavy and steady now - just what the lawn needs.  I'll have to find myself something else to do - doesn't look like gardening weather today.
