HELLO FORKERS!

Been a pretty good day here.  Some sun, not too cold.  Gazanias still flowering.....they flowered throughout last winter too.  

Any other dodos out there?

in my haste to do some garden work done in limited time today, at 100 mph,  I dug up a perfectly looking silver swan euphorbia and destroyed it.  A bit more care and it would have lifted and been replanted well.....as it is just roots and no football.  It won't regrow.....took cuttings though.  A waste of time and plant.  

Any other dodos out there?

No need to wait until the frosts.  Bit of a nonsense I think.

Blooms in November

Salino I think Christopher Lloyd would have approved of the new varieties of agastache.  Some are very showy.  He liked value plants too so varieties like sangria, summer sky, tangerine dreams, raspberry summer would have given that . They flower for ages too, impose themselves...esp the taller ones......and evoke comment.  Plus....yes, another feature.....their varied foliage scent including liquorice and citrus.   Oh! and they attract bees and butterflies. Bet  I've tempted a few of you now
