A Garden Update

Well it is sort of:):)

Just a few pics that I took on my new mobile, around the garden yesterday:-

Yje ferns at the base of the Wedding Palm are looking good, and you can see the Begonia to the right side - it is filling the pot and looking fabulous!

Everything along the fence  line is bursting with life

Tommy investigating a lizard in the garden

Tha pandanus is putting on a spurt of growth - it loves the rain and the humidity we hav e been having

Here's Priscilla looking for goodness knows what!  the lawn needs mowing again!\

Back into the middle garden, and everything is thickening up nicely - even the triangle palm has added lots of fronds

The beautiful Allamanda beside the hut has been chopped back innumerable times this past Summer, but it is still flowering madly!

The fountain, the fish are still all going strong - apart from one that got eaten b y some bird!!

The Oakleaf Frangipani has almost flowered itself into non existance this year!

Just a close up of it's flowers - unfortunately it has no perfume

This Aglaenoma lives on my kitchen island

This shows how long it has been since we ate sweet potato!  I'm thinking of planting it somewhere in the garden, but Alan says  we have no room now - I think he is right

Take Care

Warning! Warning! Watch For The Triffids!!

The Triffids are here! The Triffids are here! Beware!

 I had a strange feeling yesterday morning, that someone, or something, was watching me.

I gathered up my courage and ventured out into the back garden.  This is what I saw:-

 Some buds on the Bat Plant ! 10 of them - though you can't see them well in this photograph. Click on the pictures to see them better.

 I ventured a little closer.....

 Yesterday afternoon this is how they looked.....

This morning, this is what is happening.....

again, this morning, they have grown so tall!

Goodness knows what they will be like tomorrow!

Buds on the Bat Plant ! How fast they grow!

Wonder how they will look tomorrrow?

The Old Picture Challenge 2015

Welcome, my friends, to our February old photographs for the word "nightmare".

I'm quite sure that this got the old brain cells working hard, well it did for me, anyhows!

Firstly I must thank everyone who replied to y post about the Blogger comments problems I was having - I'm still having them, even though all your comments came through! (Or at least I think they did, how would i know?!)

I have decided simply to not worry any more about Blogger -so if I don't leave comments on your blog, please forgive me, cos  I can't.  No use crying over it.

So enough of that - it's time for pictures!!

My nightmares are as follows -

Piecing this whole quilts worth, then finding a mistake when it was all put together! Can you see it?

ANYTHING that requires me to piece precisely is enough to give me a severe migraine and terrible nightmares!  I just don't do precise!

Imagine what a nightmare it would be if you had to hand cut all these tumblers!

I love my Go Baby!

The devil threw up at the entrance to our local park - it still gives people nightmares!!! Concrete Devils' Balls!

So there's my offerings - and the word for March is:- "Growth"

I look forward to seeing your nightmares

Just sign in with Mr Linky and let's see
