A new year and a few brave pioneers are off already  :)

Re: The Floral Parade 2022: orchid Coelogyne 'Unchained Melody'
« Reply #1 on: January 08, 2022, 20:39 »
I've had this hybrid Coelogyne for about 5 years now. It blooms reliably in January to February each year, and occasionally later in the year as well.

Sorry . . . I attempted to attach a photo ... It didn't.  So,here it is now.

Gardening is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing.

I think I attached the photo correctly this time!

The flowers on this one start out pinkish, but fade to butter yellow.  Both with maroon spots.

This one grows in a shallow terracotta tray, filled with volcanic rock chunks. It sits in full sun next to the tomatoes during the summer.

There is a good fragrance, noticeable most strongly at night. Like a mixture of vanilla and cloves

Wild crocus in a haze over a large flowerbed.  They seed everywhere and I know that would drive some mad, but they are so lovely I forgive them  :wub:

Snowdrops also doing their bit to cheer things up and a pot of Iris reticulata are a drop of blue heaven  :D

After the awful weather on Wednesday when we had heavy rain all day, spring returned yesterday  :)

The tulips opened out in the sun and looked like they were having a good time.  The tiny Hepaticas were also giving it their all  :)

First flowers from an Autumn sowing of sweet peas, in a sheltered spot.

Sweet Williams looking lovely  :)

They are plants from last year that I saved when I emptied my summer pots out and replanted this year, but you would never know they are technically Ďpast ití  :D

I've got loads of roses out, and they look fab from a distance, but the rain is spoiling them, so when I go for for closeups, it's just not worth taking pictures. sob sob  :wub:

Roses aren't too shabby, after a few dry days

This year's  Vincas.

For two years in a row, we have planted exactly none of this. They sprout from whatever seeds were dropped during the previous year.  The result is quite a hodge-podge of different colors and flower patterns, but we like it.

The only maintenance we do is to pull weeds occasionally, and toss down a little fertilizer when we get around to it, and water when it's really dry.  A benefit is that Vinca is one flower the deer won't eat. We do cut some occasionally for indoor flowers.
