Its amazing what a few days of warmth can do to a garden. No its not been cracking the flags but it has been a steady even temp with no rain or horrendous wind for a few while.
Just look at the improvement to the 'Surfinas' out the front!
At long last the Alocasia 'Burgundy Stem' looks like it 'wants' to grow which I am really thrilled about.......
can you see the start of the new leaf?
I also have Colocasia 'Black Magic' which has also struggled over the last month or so
but is definately alot happier now!!!
My BIG Elephants ears has had to be moved as it was getting 'squished' up against the coal bunker
I have 3 very big leaves now!!!!!
The Alocasia which we belive is a 'Portadora' has also sprouted a new leaf, this doesn't like being as wet as the Colocasia's but I'm still not convinced I have it growing in the right situation.
The flowers on the Eucomis bicolor Pineapple Flower which by the way is supposed to be one of the 'least' attractive of the species. (I disagree!!!!!!) Has just begun to open the little flowerlet thingys!!!!!
I must apologise for the amount of pics I take of my Brugmansia! I just love it, as you walk past you are hit by a wall of scent which makes you stop dead,
then you look closer and see the magnificent bell shaped flower
closer still and look tiny little hairs cover the flower, I wonder why?
