Sunshine On The Patio Border


Sunshine On The Patio Border

Four new half standards in there now...Rhapsody In Blue, Flower Power, Absolutely Fabulous and Princess Anne. And today I planted many little groups of dwarf species tulips of various kinds in there. In Spring it will sparkle! If you look closely, you will see all the Aeoniums are on the window sills. I've had a power failure in the greenhouse and it can't be fixed before Wednesday, so earlier in the week I lugged them all indoors in preparation for this cold snap. -5C expected tonight and that's as cold as it usually gets here. I have a hunch we are in for a cold winter.

The roses are going to look great :-) what do you have planted underneath to look good after the tulips have gone.
