Well that’s another month almost finished. The year seems to be racing to the end. This week I’m bringing you photos from my indoor flowers and just a couple from the garden.
First picture is of this Begonia flower. This is an offshoot of a rescue plant from last year. Neither plant has really impressed me, the stems and leaves break off easily and they are often miffy about my watering. However, this one is now producing some lovely flowers.
Photo two is of one of the purple African Violets (I have pink ones too) The thick leaves got some sunburn during the drought, but they are recovering now.
The third photo is of something slow growing and fun. Lithops or Living Stone plants grown from seed. I had six seeds in the pack. Five germinated, I lost two, but these three now look a little more lively. I have included a photo of the seed packet for you to get a better idea of what they might grow into.
Fourth photo is of the changing colours of the garden Beech hedge.
Fifth photo is of the buds on the Camelia which are forming.
Lastly some of my baby Poinsettia are now ready to produce their red flowers. The leaves have turned red quicker than previous years. I’m hoping to get a Poinsettia with different coloured leaves to experiment with next.
