The greenhouse recorded an overnight low of -2C and the Zantedeschia (Greek Arum lily) didn't like it much!
The flowers have gone brown on the edges and some of the leaves are looking unhappy :(

I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

Still a good looking plant though  :)

Being totally nosey (who me - who would have thought it) what are the rocks and plants to the left? Have you got a permanent planted display in there ?

Yes, a soil border with a (very rough!) rock edging, this is my 'pretend you're still living in the Med' greenhouse    8)  :lol:. The other side has the grapevine in a much smaller border, so the roots can grow underneath the base.
The flower bed had Sicilian Chamomile, Greek Oregano, pink and purple Osteospermums  and a big pink Oleander (the origional cuttings for that were brought back from Zante when I came back)
No sign at all of the Osteos or the Oregano after the first really cold snap - but the Chamomile and Oleander look a bit rough, but are still alive!  :D
I've sowed more Oregano and Osteos - so fingers crossed, it'll be back to normal soon - hopefully the weather will be as well.

. . . But where I grew up in Indiana, we always called them Tulip Trees (Latin: Liriodendron tulipifera).

I'd bet that recovers with no problems. Nice looking plant!

Brilliant! Wonderful color and form.

I wish we could grow tulips here.  Our winters are not suitable for them. There are only a very few varieties that claim to be adapted to southern conditions.
