Here are a few of my favourite things
The first picture (above) is Stellatta Magnolia. There is a beautiful example of this shrub in a garden in the next street to us. Sadly mine only ever bears a few flowers and I would be grateful if any of my readers could tell me what to do to encourage it to perform better....without showing it the axe !! Ha-ha
This one is a Leucadendron "Harvest" a new comer (just bought it last Wednesday) I couldn't leave it in the garden centre, don't you love it
The pic below is a close-up.
Its great that colour can be introduced to the garden display without there being flowers
Now this Pacific blue doesn't usually flower here until late October/early November. I'm surprised to see it so early. I know it is in bloom in other parts of the hills but our place is quite high and 2 or 3 degrees colder.
Last, but not least this bright blue ground cover (name long forgotten) has more flowers on it than I've ever seen.
