Rena, Abby and Aletta, your gardens have always inspired me - thank you for sharing!

September 2013 :


...6 months later :


Leonitis  -  I can't get used to the sunbirds in my garden, and they love these :


Tillandsia  (I think...)  :)

Cecile!  Your garden looks stunning - definitely green fingers ;D

The tillandsia are lovely - and is that the same thorn tree that was in the black bag in the first photo?

But I don't see any clivia????

Your garden is definitely picking up the pace Cecile, well done.

LeRoy, great genetics, and this one is surely a stunner. Would love to see it in 2 years.

Regards.

Aletta  :)

The Pink Black Eyed Susan looks very nice and if it does not seed it is a bonus

Over 20 yers ago I planted a black eyed Suzan and to this day I am pulling it out  >:(

Abby,
It's so very true! They tend to appear in places were they're not welcome!

Rena,
I layered a shoot in a smaller pot next to big pot in which the Thunbergia is growing. Please hold your thumbs!!
