New Year's Day 2014 Flower Count

Posted: 01/01/2014 at 09:57

Oh heck.....ok, from memory after just checking out there (not so bad actually now)

To add to some of those already mentioned.....don't have Niger, pansies, vincas, white campion, groundsel, herb Robert..

Mahonia, gazanias, osteospermums, pelargoniums, bidens (still in pots), Camelias (odd one or two) stocks, wallflowers (couple with early odd flowers) winter jasmine, geum totally tangerine, nemesia, Abelia Confetti, geraniums Elke and Orion both have few and far between flowers, helleborus Corsicus, and even some yellow flowers on senecio sunshine. Daphne Eternal Fragrance .  (grasses with dead flowers and salvias Amistad and leucanthemum are holding onto spent flowers). Oh, scabious butterfly blue and pink mist showing a little.

Take a while for those thorns to rot down to "benign" clueless.   Tried to shred then compost berberis prunings. Not a pleasant compost.  Best burnt I think
