Thoughts, musings and photos, whatever comes to mind on any given day.
You must have had more rain thane in South Australia, your Haemanthus cockiness (Blood Lily), are already flowering while ours are not even up yet.
Oh thank you Arija, we had some heavy rain in the last fortnight which has brought a lot of plants into life. I have only just moved in here and am being surprised by what is showing up in the empty garden beds. I am not game to do too much digging until I know what is going to show up. Blood Lily, so now I know.
You are so wise to wait. My theory has always been to wait a year and see what the garden brings. I have seen unwary gardeners destroy treasures by instantly wanting to put their stamp on the garden and only wrecking it in the process.I sincerely wish you many wonderful surprises!
Oh gosh, I'm glad I'm late checking in as now I too know what the mystery bulbs are!!Are they sweet and beautiful?? I wonder how long they'll stay in flower - you must tell.
Hi Rose, the ants and bees love them. The flower is a heavy waxed type, not a lot of fragrance though. I will have to let you know when they start to die off. I know that the leaves start appearing once the flower dies off.
Our little clump is flowering - every year we plan to move the bulbs to a spot where they'll be more noticeable, but every year we leave it too late and miss the window of opportunity!
Mine are in the front garden right next to the pathway , a lot more are poking their little heads out now too.
Those are really bright!Love them!!! Yes, it's night here. Actually, it's almost 1 a.m. I am so excited I can't sleep. Paul McCartney is coming to Austin in May and I am going to try to get tickets this morning. I hope I can sleep some. I have loved Paul McCartney since I was 9 and never have seen him!
By 1 am I will be snoring my head off, Paul McCartney is great, hope you get tickets. I have never seen him either. I did get to see Cliff Richard when he came to Perth in February, he was still fantastic at 72.
So exciting to see what comes in a your new garden! Enjoy the rain!
