The Green Garden

While Paul's busy making some more shot, I'll jump in ahead...

This is the Green Garden, for want of a better name... :roll: This Euphorbia, I think Wulfenii, has been in for close on three years and has multiplied well - lots of heads 'thickening' up to flower this year! Hooray!!!! :lol:

(Oh, and it was an accident that these just happened to be in the same garden - most unusual for me :roll: :roll: :roll:

I didn't know you used green shot, Paul :shock: But, I guess that you do care for the environment... 8) 8)

The flowers will be green, mic, well, the bits that show best. My avatar's one from last season.

:-? nothing like a bit of 'colour' in the garden, Luzy If I remember I'll try and catch a bit of purple, and post this afternoon. Regardless of how hard I try to avoid doing so, I always seem to end with a purple thing happening! :roll:

Luzy, I think I might wait until the azalea is flowering to post it here, simply so that the flowers cover the horrible silver look of the leaves, but will post in the gallery

:lol: :lol: Don't know about the green thumb, kitkat. I'm just pleased that they seem to like growing here. I found a photo of that area from about 18 months ago - and am amazed at how they've branched out. :D
