First apologies to Terra and Bjs i’ve not had time to do the blogs on Buddlija’s and i was going to do one on Grafting, i know you both were interested in those subjects. It’s been so busy and we had vandals in wrecking the place, why they don’t just take what they want and go instead of taking then smashing the place up i don’t know, but that’s taken care of now. So next year i will do those topics.

Here are a few pics i took today, hope you enjoy.

Saw this on my girls trampoline this morning..

The first of the Phalanopsis Hybrids 6d sent me last year starting to flower now.

Once the freezing fog had melted this Euphorbia ‘gold foam’ with rain drops.

My young Silver birch has started getting it’s namesake colour bark

These little devils were in my cold frame on the corydalis..

Carex Testacea, i do love this orange sedge.

Now a first for me a little Oxalis Versicolor in bud form.

Starting to open up…

open but under shot…

from above nothing to special but i like it…

Thanks for Looking :-)

Lovely photos, I did n´t know that it is Oxalis, I was just wondering what it is till I didn´t read Brian´s comment. Very beautiful little thing. But that spider´s net is amazing. You will have big luck now, Slad.

Hi Surreylad so sad to hear you ve had vandals and a brake in, this is why I no longer bother with any one except my family not even neighbours.

I am so pleased the orchid has flowered for you that one is always a guarantee I hope all the others flower for you too.
I bought just two now hehe I m adicted to them.

I love the spiders web and that 3 photo like diamonds on the foliage lovely. Your Oxalis Versicolor is so pretty
