Found this Amararillis the other day in the greenhouse about to open, not sure if itís one of the babies I potted on a few years ago, need to scroll through my photos to have a see if Iíve had one the same before or if itís a newbie.
No I canít find it, but of course I might not have taken a photo, did find the next picture though of this day Lilly that I bought as it has a significant name to me, a really rich colour & a lot taller than my other day lilies

I am very proud of my passion flower. I bought it last summer, and this year it has gone crazy and spread all over the wall.

Beautiful, they can get pretty rampant if they're in a location they appreciate  :D
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Lockdown meant we had to compromise at first, but then were tipped off that High Banks could help a bit...

Mimulus, own geraniums, own fuscias, 'Albufeira' lilies, (free with blueberry plants, which are not doing at all well, but we hope to keep these particular chaps)!

Thank you, News!

We're just lucky to have the time and space to do all this, and hope that others can eventually get to some normality a.s.a.p....

There are some 'armpits', which won't get photographed of course..:0~

My 'centrepiece' flower border - hollyhocks at rear, heleniums and alstromeria in the middle, two salvias front right.

The hollyhocks are doing remarkably well to say how close together I planted them - was given them by a friend last year who realised they would grow too big for her garden, so I just plonked them in any old how.
4 of about 6 plants now flowering, and I'm really chuffed to see 4 different colours so far.  :)

Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

That's lovely, JayG.  Are most of the plants perennials?

The alstroemerias and heleniums are herbaceous perennials, the salvias perennials, the hollyhocks either short-lived perennials or biennials (depending on which website you visit to find out!)

On the hollyhock theme but a bit different  :)  This is Alcalthaea suffrutesens Parkfrieden.  It grows tall and upright like a hollyhock, but the flowers are smaller and a bit different.  The bumblebees seem fairly smitten with it.

The other picture is Dahlia Cornel Bronze.   It is the best of the bunch so far for flower power, but the others are budding up.

Dahlia duos today.  I have 3 large pots of them and a mix in each.  Now they have all got going, it is a blaze of colour outside the back door.  They are all in large dark brown pots, picked to go with the plants, but that was a waste of time, 'cos you can't see them for foliage now  :lol:

Cornel Bronze and Nicholas

Molly Raven and Darkarin

Cornel Bronze again, but this time with Penhill Watermelon

I'm sending a photo of another one of my orchids, Laeliocattleya Tropical Pointer 'Cheetah'.  I've had this about 8 years, this is the best it has bloomed for me.

Normally I tell people it isn't fragrant. But this year . . . voila! Nicely fragrant. Sometimes orchids are like that.

I know we are in a global economy because my favorite gardening hat, purchased in the United States, was made in China by a Swiss company and has a label in Spanish.  (They all deserve their piece of the pie, wouldn't you agree? We are all in this world together.)

Another orchid, Potinara Frank Gilmore.  6-inch diameter fragrant flowers. I have had this plant since it was a seedling, this is the first time it has bloomed for me.
