Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to TheElephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I have my garden again.
I planned on putting a couple of garden chairs in this empty space for older people to rest on their way to and from the shop. The mulch is fairly high though, so maybe a couple of non-slip pavers as well. Eventually. Next year.
a couple of newbies, cineraria silverdust.
my neighbour P brought me this half empty punnet of what I call freckle plants, she has planted three in the section of garden by her flat.
so of course I planted them. Two are mostly pink with green splotches,
the third is mostly green with pink splotches. they are a fairly small plant not growing much past my ankles, little rounded mounds of colour.
my stocks have started flowering
and the marigolds have too,
and yellow. These will self seed if I let them and keep coming up year after year.
the flowers on the kangaroo paws, (all of them) have died and I should cut them out to allow new ones to grow, I'll get around to that soon. I cut back my daughter's kangas and she has a lovely new flush of flowers on them, but the new flowers were already showing when I did the cutting, so maybe I'll wait a bit longer and see if mine do the same.
my hollyhocks aren't as tall as they should be, you may recall me saying I planted them too late in the season, but they're growing still, so I have hopes of flowers eventually.
the hollyhocks in the footpath garden a bit further down the road are as tall as me and flowering well.
in the front garden bed the agapanthus have begun flowering.
this garden bed is the only one with white agapanthus
I like these better than the more usual purple, which some people call blue. The same colour as our wonderful jacarandas.
twin buds ready to bloom above a dying rose
the same twin buds two days later.
