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.

Sounds lovely  :D

You will have to post some pictures in the summer when it is back to its full glory  :)

. . . 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.

This is one of my favourite corners at 'The Turrets'!

These few tulips and the bluebells have been here ever since we arrived in 1989, and never fail to pop up every year!

The rose at the back is a 'Casino' (yellow), which was one of Mrs Growster's presents early on, because we'd had to leave another one at the old place! The other stuff is self-sown after some work there a couple of years ago - we once had a fabulous pink poppy, and last year, a 5ft Evening Primrose cropped up!
