Hello again all.

Hope you are all keeping well and have had an enjoyable year in your gardens.

It’s a long time since I posted a blog, so this is just a short one of a few of the flowers of the year around LA.

Hello Angie, lovely to see you back on here. All those flowers are amazing , especially the lilies. I also noticed the daffodils are out too. Is it the Spring there now ? Ooh, I could just do with some of that sun now !

Hello Rose
No it's not spring but coming into fall/autumn here. These are pics taken through the year as the titles of the blog says. The daffs I had on my balcony in the spring. I just loveeeee daffs they remind me of home which is Ireland.
Although, the stalks of the daffs are starting to re-grows again but I don't know if I'll get flowers on them as it rarely gets cold enough for daffs and the likes that need chilling to re-bloom here, unless we lift them in the summer and chill them, which I didn't.

The Tiger Lilies were on my balcony also, I love them too. I had about nine flowers this year. They take about 3 to 4 years to bloom from the seeds I pick off the stem. I collected loads of seeds this year. I stuck them all in pots so I don't even know what I'll do with them all. I did take them over to a clients garden where I have a little nursery area. I wish I had a garden big enough to start a nursery. However, I learned from a nursery in town that there is huge restriction on watering and most nurseries are not allowed to tart plants here! Which dumfounded me! So no point in having a nursery in LA!

All the best for now.

I love Tiger Lilies too, but have never got round to getting any. My friend lives in N.Ireland and we went for a visit last year. I can understand you missing it. Its beautiful and the people were so friendly.

You should try the Tiger Lilies. Or if you have a friend with some ask for a few seeds, they are such beauties. They do like a lot of watering and food helps though.
Yes Ireland is beautiful and I certainly miss it living here in the desert of LA. I love a walk through the fields & woods.
All the best for now.

What stunning photos Angie. Sun ALL the time must be just as wearying as the weather we get here in Scotland. What is that purple tree. It looks amazing. I grow lots of lilies but none from seed yet. My son was working in Ireland for a couple of years and we visited. It was beautiful and the people both sides of the border equally warm and friendly. I don't wonder that you miss it.
