Something more tropical

Not a lot of flowers to be seen in this shaded spot. The caladiums do flower at this time of the year, but they're certainly nothing to write home about.

The area is still only very young, and as we are renting, much of it is potted, though many are buried amongst the mulch.

I may well change the pic if I get a better (neater) one of the same area.

interesting Pam,

being so close to your backdoor though,
I'd be inclined to plant more herbs and veg in that spot.

I've been wracking my brain trying to work out who it is that isn't logged in, and can't for the life of me work out who it is! :lol:

Anyway, to the topic, this area isn't really near the back door - it's in the back corner. The herbs (the few that there are) are planted amongst the other plants around the garden.

He's a turtle dove, isn't he? He's got his eye on you, Pam ;)

I'm not certain, but I think they're the introduced spotted dove, Lea. I believe they can, in places, be a problem for some native species, but we seem to get a fairly big variety of birds here, and these are among the ones that aren't territorial.

Yes, Pam, I didn't type their complete name (lazy typing ;) ) but I know they're actually called Spotted Turtle Doves 8) ... we've got a whole flock of them in our garden ... we feed them seed ... yes, we've also got a flock of indigenous Crested Pigeons, and they all appear very happy to hang out together 8) ... e_dove.htm ;) 8)
