Can't believe it either,Paul..I took cuttings which are doing well,but wish now,I had repotted these up too..I might do that yet..they don't deserve to die,do they ?

Pretty isn't it. I still have fuchsias flowering outside - must be some kind of record don't you think?

Good morning,Sticki..:o)..I think you are right there..never known them go on so long..I also have a white Pelargonium in flower outside ..the last one standing !

WHo wants to live forever?
Looking great Bloomer! WIll you take them inside?
My geranium is still flowering just. I think I need to get it in the house..very hard frost here today! My Fuschias are still flowering too. Rest of the garden is dead!

is it because they get reasonably long hours of positive temps? It is only really sub zero for a few hours at the moment..............

At the moment two of my Sollya's, my Polygala myrtifolia and the Eccromocarpus scaber are still producing flowers. They're all described as tender.

Looks as if they are going on forever Sandra , I still have Fuchsias outside as well and Eccromocarpus , what a weird year !

17 Dec, 2011

 

Very pretty, even though it's December!

17 Dec, 2011

 

Have to agree there doing very well...

17 Dec, 2011

 

Hey that is doing well Sandra, mine have long since gone!, I have taken cuttings of Fucshia and gerainiums but they dont look too happy, most the Fucshias have lost all their leaves, do hope they come through the winter they are in the utility room and its above freezing! We have snow here have you, just a light layer at the moment but hope it stays like that and doesnt repeat on last years fall! ;0)

Pixi..I might bring them inside tomorrow,weather permitting..it seems a shame when they are still alive...I have one of myPelargoniums on the bathroom window sill in flower again.so you might be able to keep it going :o)

Could be,Meanie,as they are quite sheltered by the house wall.Pleased your plants are still flowering..:o)

you are right,Sticki..a good blog or pic title :o)

Thanks,Terra..never known it like this before,but not complaining ! :o)

Seems a lot of our plants are still giving us pleasure, Amy,
great,isn't it ? :o)
Thanks Sheilar and Carol..for how long,I wonder ? Lol.

Carole,I have only lost the leaves on one Fuchsia so far,but some of the leaves are going yellow now,but most still have a couple of flowers on.I cut one of them back..to fit on the racking..and it has started growing again !
I haven't bothered with Pelargonium cuttings this year,,but potted a couple of plants up instead.We haven't got any snow here,but went up the 'Western 'again today.We were surprised to see they had quite a bit ! Poor Alex was out at 9am to clear that huge car park,and had just finished ,when it started again ,so he had to clear it a second time ! We felt really sorry for them today,as Rachel had needed him to help out..they had a few bookings today..but as usual,they still remained cheerful(on the outside) and the food was still its usual standard..:o)

That's amazing, Sandra ... :o)

17 Dec, 2011

 

It is indeed,Shirley..but a good amazing ! Lol.

17 Dec, 2011

 

Lol, I didn't word that comment very well, did I? ... Waiting for OH to come in from the footie ... he'll be cold ... and hungry too no doubt . . . . .

17 Dec, 2011

 

I knew what you meant,Shirley..:o)I can't believe how they can stand or sit in the open at a footie match,in the cold,Shirley..that is loyalty !

17 Dec, 2011

 

Once a 'Seagull' ... always a 'Seagull' ... that's a Brighton & Hove Albion fan in case you were wondering! ... :o)

17 Dec, 2011

 

I would have been wondering ,Shirley..so thanks for the explanation..had no idea there was a human one ! Lol.

17 Dec, 2011

 

On that note ... I'm off to my bed ... goodnight all! ... zzzzzzz
