Anthony . those liliums are so beautiful. Congrats on the prize.
Charleen, we did miss you . Enjoyed seeing your garden though as we popped in. Louise must be busy as I didnt see her when we landed in her yard. After a long rest on her lovely garden chairs, we had a bit of a tour around the area and then took off on our way home.
Sorry we missed you Louise.
Cant be away too long or we might miss things happening in our gardens.
After a brief stop in Hawaii, ( some people had to look at more broms ) we finally made it back across the Pacific to home.
I had to heave some large boxes off the carpet as we dropped people off. I dont know how they are going to fit all those new plants in the gardens.
The elves were glad to see me back and I have sent them off on a short trip as a reward for looking after the Tea Room.
It will be time soon , for them to be off to the North Pole to help get things ready for Christmas.
I have a bundle of lovely salvia cuttings to pot up today too.
I think the salvias may be trying to turn into a "collection" ha ha.
I have about 25 different ones now.
Well. I need something flowering, to fill in between the epis, zygos, brugs and irises.
Better move and do some washing. It didnt get done while I was away on the carpet.
Happy gardening everyone. Heres something nice from the kitchen for you all. ..Black Forest Cake.
