Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
This week we are back in my garden:
my jades are covered in buds,
some of which are about to open. In a short time the bushes will be a mass of starry pink blossoms.
my elephant ears are doing very well, multiplying at a great rate
and look at these aeoniums!
the black ones are doing better now the summer heat has passed, but the roots are shallow and they keep falling over. I should have buried the stems deeper when I planted.
the coprosma doesn't seem to be making any headway at all. According to the label, this should be 1.5 metres tall by now, instead it is stuck at 50cm, but at least it is still alive and colourful.
this pelargonium is leaning quite a long way, reaching for the sun, if I anchor one of the stems with a tent peg, perhaps it will send down new roots and stabilise.
my rhubarb has a few red stems, probably ready for cutting, but being short and thin, they won't go far. I can stew them with just a couple of apples for a single serve dessert.
the 'hen and chickens' that I have forgotten the name of is spreading quite wide now, I had several of these, but pulled out most of them as they were intruding upon other plants.
the white geranium is looking nice and lush too
the succulents in the bird baths...
are being quite badly chewed, I suspect earwigs, the garden is full of them.
my cat mint bounces back every time I remember to put some water in the pot, Lola loves to roll around in a couple of stalks when I pick some for her.
on my porch table, the Angels have exchanged positions, the base of the larger one fits perfectly on the base of the upturned empty pot.
now let's take a quick look at something I saw on V's verandah, which has a roof shading it from the hot sun:
her zygocactus is flowering!
