HELLO FORKERS!

Punk doc, just got an Audi A1 ...for my niece.  She could have had some great deals on Clio, Peugeot, Citroen, Seat, etc but  had her heart set on A1.  It is a joy to drive and such a classy looking vehicle.  

been a pretty good day weather wise...plenty of sunshine, the odd short lasting shower and the sun was warm.  

Potted on a couple of delphiniums that arrived in the post.  

Got treated to lunch today....always good to eat for free.  

What's flowering in your garden today?

Pelargoniums too.  Oh, and geranium elke is showing an early flower or too. And pulmonaria blue ensign looking good

sunny here but snowing just 20 miles east reflecting topsy turvy weather right now.   Its supposed to be winter until mid week and then spring...yippee! 

Coleonema

got a couple of Coleonema sunset gold to plant out.  Anyone growing this? ,

I think  this has had a name change but for moment cannot recall it.  I'm already growing this, or at least a variety of it......I think.  Sunset Gold though seems more vigorous so would appreciate any opinions on it

Snuggers?  Love new words.  However, my bloomin' iPad makes up words for me all the time....and changes spelling!  

Mrsgarden, that grass should be helictotrichon!  

Successful car purchase yesterday ...my niece is very pleased.  Last minute dispute over finance...maybe salesman had slipped up but maybe he tried to sneak in a little extra!  However, a deal is a deal.  

MornIng folks.  Looks like showers and sunshine.  Right now it's looking good.  When I take my dog it will no doubt pour down.

Helictootrichon?  Blueish grass around 4' high

not a grass but what about libertia?  Evergreen olive/red/orange leaves and white spring flowers.  Around 3' high.  Maybe ophiopogon nigrescens with it.....black evergreen foliage?

Usually just mulch

Fire island is a variety I bought last year.  Weak growing then ....well it was a small,plant to start with......but I have high hopes for it this year.  White feather would not grow well down here either...light levels are so high that even light sun would bleach it.

charley,,the virus is something that wont just go away.  No cure and, apparently, is highly contagious

Bindweed Roots

Barry, digging up bindweed is worst possible action to take.  With respect, anyone doing this, no matter how dark it is......roots will seek out the light.......will simply propagate dramatically
