Garden Walk

I have new growth on lots of plants and get excited every time I see something new. My garden is ever changing … Things I am happy about today!

Hey Barbs, remember what we were chatting about the other day, about how there is only so much one can photograpjh in the garden before you run out of things to photograph? Well I did a garden walk-about now and found that that is only partly true – I have new growth on lots of plants and get excited every time I see something new. My garden is ever changing so hopefully I won’t ever run out of things to get excited about, photographs to take … and of course I’ll never stop learning!Highlight of the day? The Brunfelsia plant I had given up on finally sprouted new growth! Overnight it seems! I love these plants (Yesterday, today and tomorrow) and can’t wait for it to grow and flower.

Things that I am happy about today are …

Dominated by large trees on a medium sized property, my garden is very shaded. With no “full sun” areas I have to plant shade and partial shade loving plants. I love shrubs and flowers including camellias and azaleas but Roses and Irises are my favourite and getting these to thrive is a challenge …

I just saw at the bottom of this page you re in South Africa. I need to change my blog link page. I was confused because I read where Barbie moved to Philadelphia and figured since you had lemon trees you were in the south. Sorry! Even neater to know another blog from South Africa. Elephant’s Eye is also out of South Africa I believe. Cheers.

Hi Christine, It’s so neat that you and Barbie have a way to communicate about your gardens. Too cool. I hope your lemon tree is doing better. You are in Florida and Barbie is in PA? I’d say you definitely have different gardens. My garden is like yours-mostly shaded, not completely but it might as well be. I love your brug. They are treasures for us here TN where they are tender but sometimes winter over. Hopefully mine will come back. Take care and Happy Gardening!

It’s just a little miniature rose – one I bought as a potted plant and then planted out into the garden when it had finished blooming, but I am thrilled that it’s flowering again. I’ve been caring for them, so it’s paid off! YAY! Maybe I’ll turn my “brown thumbs” into “green fingers” yet!

Oh my word!!! That is so awesome! The pond plant is blooming AND you have a rose!!! This always shows a happy garden. Everything is really enjoying your attention! And you are so right in that there is always something new to photograph. Your garden is looking amazing …… keep up the love & attention, but don’t work too hard!
