Still in the Greenhouse!

We had sunshine and showers today,



the showers where pretty heavy but not really heavy enough to refill my water butts. Because it was raining so heavily when I got up and I wanted to check that all the gutters where lined up to fill the butts and sort out the ones that weren't, I jumped into some joggers and just put a coat on over my nightie and charged off down the garden, good job all the neighbours leave early for work!
Anyway once that was sorted and I was suitably attired, I fixed the automatic opener on the second roof vent and generally just pottered around.

My Aeonium is still doing well, it seems to thrive on neglect, but it has lost alot of its leaves/petals so maybe needs re-potting or feeding.



I love the way the leaves go pink at this time of year!

I potted up two of its babies



This is my Ensete ventricosum Montbeliardii



with Tango sussing out the best place to be..........

Oh, I love the aeonium. I remember see them in many window boxes there some of them very very purple. They look so lovely.

I love warm Spring rain, it really moves the garden along. The cat has the right idea, he thinks those green houses are for him..!
