Fuchsia’s look like dancing ballerina’s with a colorful dress, you cannot but love them and they are really easy plants, they are a bit tender and most are shade loving and like a bit of moist but some like a spot in the sun and others are really very winterhardy. But they all look pretty !
FUCHSIA TRIPHYLLA (triphylla’s like a spot in the sun but are very tender)
FUCHSIA TRIPHYLLA ANDENKEN AN HEINRICH HENKEL
FUCHSIA PAPY RENE
FUCHSIA MAGELLANICA MAGELLANICA (this one is very winterhardy, it is a bush up to 2 meters high and you cut it back very hard in Spring)
Have a great day all !
Ten (10) weeks ago I looked like this ;
ME AND MY MUM
Now I look like this:
IN 10 WEEKS TIME I AM TALLER THAN MY MUM BUT I AM STILL A BIT SKINNY BUT THAT IS BECAUSE I AM NOT AN ADULT YET, RIGHT ? By the way, my name is opuntia ficus indica Burbank.
Have a great Sunday all and thanks for your visit !!
I have no words to describe the beauty of the begonia, they are considered “old fashioned” at the moment but it is such an easy plant, a beautiful plant with beautiful leafs and all sorts of different shapes and colors of flowers. What is NOT to like ??? They love a shady place but they can stand a bit of sun too if they get enough water. They grow from bulbs, you keep the bulbs dry and frost free during winter and you plant them again in Spring (inside until the frosts have gone), year after year after year. I know an old lady who said she had her begonia bulbs for over 50 years !!!!
I took some pictures for you so you can see for yourselves.
And these are just a small choice of all the hundreds that exist.
Have a great weekend !!
PS YOU CAN FIND SOME OF MY PICTURES ON SHUTTERSTOCK, THERE IS A LINK FOR THAT ON MY “PAGES”.
DRACAENA MARGINATA, house plants just love a summervacation in the garden so I put as many house plants in the garden as I can, this is just one of them. I just put this one in the garden a few days ago, I’ll show you another picture when Summer is over so you can see the difference.
Mind you, never put a house plant in full sun straight away, not even a cactus !!! Let them slowly get used to the sun if they are sun lovers.
Have a great weekend all !
We are at the end of the Easter weekend, I love Easter but it was an early Easter this year so the weather was not good enough to do some work in the garden. I did some sowing in the greenhouse and the strawberry plants I replanted in the greenhouse a few weeks ago (I kept them in a pot last year) are now growing nicely and they are getting flowers !!
Remember my begonia Muddy Waters who started to bloom in December ?
THIS WAS TAKEN ON DECEMBER 23 RD LAST YEAR
THIS WAS TAKEN TODAY, IT HASN’T STOPPED FLOWERING FOR OVER 3 MONTHS NOW AND IT IS STILL MAKING NEW FLOWERSTALKS. AND LOOK AT THESE SWEET LITTLE FLOWERS !
I hope I can soon showing pictures from my garden, this Winter is taking too much time !!!
Have a great week all and thanks for visiting !
