Photos from your garden

Recommended Posts

Done some gardening and repotting today. 

Found this succulent in the sell by section at Bunnings. Loads of life in it still. 

Pulled up a bit of lavender randomly sprouting by my washing line and potted it up- see if I can keep it a live....

We've had a lot of wind and rain but the daffodils managed to come out -  not spring yet either.  The succulent in the next photo I grew from a tiny cutting I stuck in a year ago.

I am absolutely no gardener, but I am proud of my magnolia. There have been 15 flowers. I posted in January that all the leaves had dropped off and there were 17 buds and one flower, totally out of season, so was really relieved when it flowered as usual in the last week.

Love daffodils, we had an old house and lots of different varieties in our UK garden. There was an article in the Daily Mail, that a variety that was thought to be extinct had been found. I saw the photo and we had the same one in our garden!! I contacted the paper, to be told they had had loads of calls, so there plenty of them still around, so I wasn’t famous!!

Your magnolia is out well ahead of the ones in Tassie.  They won't be flowering here for another couple of months.

Did an experiment in the garden; took a cutting a few years ago from a bougainvillea growing out at The Willows Gemfield, west of Emerald in central Qld. It was a pink double. When my cutting first flowered in a pot in my garden, this is the colour:

I added a different soil to the pot and this is the colour:

Took another cutting last year and stuck it in a pot with different soil again and put it in morning sunlight and this is the result:

The 'parent' is in late afternoon sun.

Love my little garden.

The cat doesn't hate me it's yawning.

The sapling at the front right of pic, I got Tesco for £6. It's grown about 4 foot since spring. Can't remember if it's plum, apple or pear, will find out next year.

Great shots Kev. That beautiful blue sky is the perfect background.

A natural cross between the cooktown and golden orchids, dendrobium biggibum x dendrobium discolor. And a cavendish banana. In the middle of the photo is an arundina, one of the reed orchids. (pink and white)

An unknown dendrobium orchid

P1090157.thumb.JPG.5f839e3192fda8f85a77fef511dfae03.JPG

Cattleya Skinneri, the rare white variety. The more common variety is purple.

P1090156.thumb.JPG.b8b710431aff6fe8a52ae826a14b6ef9.JPG

Both, along with the phalaenopsis orchids, are under my macadamia nut tree.

Cheers, Bobj.
