Small flowering pelargonium

Viola tricolour - thank you, Abby :)

Ivy pelargonium

Heliotrope - smells just like honey - the bees love it

Chinese forget me nots - I think cynoglossum?

  Rena, I always get a feel-good feeling when I see pictures of your garden   :)

In Michael's garden:


Cup of Gold - did not realise its a climber when I bought it...


Only six inches high, and rewarded me with a flower the size of a saucer two days after it was planted:


The clivia in front: from Rena to Michael to Cecile... on loan  ;)

Lovely flowers, Cecile - I'm glad to see your son shares his plants with mom ;D

Just be particular  and don't take any onion weed from him.............................

Michael - the scents in the garden are wonderful - particularly the heliotrope at the moment.

[size=78%]BUT WHY DO THE MUGGIES AND BEES STILL PREFER MY SCENT - THE PLANTS WILL BE BUZZING WITH BEES BUT WHEN I WALK PAST THEY MAKE A BEE-LINE (!) FOR ME[/size] :o :o :o :o
I go through cans and cans of peaceful sleep to keep them away!

Michael Moderator - can you see these images ( :clap: :good: etc) ?  I was going to ask if you can't delete them from the message page seeing that they don't work anyway - but maybe it's only me that is denied access to them ??

Lovely, LeRoy - I have one flowering  in the same colour but only single blooms - but the incredible heat we had during the week scorched the open blooms and they didn't last well - hopefully the buds that are left will do better.

I didn't believe these rain lilies yesterday - and spent the whole day watering the garden - now today we are having lots of glorious rain :o
