Fish!

Postby Luzy » Sun Jul 08, 2007 5:07 pm

Here's an 'oldie' - the second ever photo I put up on the forum...

The fish are more or less in the same position, but with more spiders living in them and a bit more rust now. I have got some 'new' fish - I must find somewhere pretty for them to feature :lol:

Luzy, that is so cool..the fish look like they are swimming above a reef and are in amongst the reeds...... that is tops.
Don't be afraid to colour outside the lines.

Fantastic shot, Luzy!! I love the way you use your garden for creative imagination. Is the white colour flower Allysum? What's the secret to grow them so nice, clumpy and bushy?

I just cut back mine now and now wait if they'll improve.

Looks like candytuft to me Yani (I could be absolutely wrong!). Your alyssum should self-seed easily, shimmey shimmey shake shake and another gardenfull in spring! :wink:

I find that white alyssum self-seeds better than the purple ones, anyone else experience this?

Thank you! And you're right about the candytuft, Comeilotei, and it's still there too, being of the perennial type.

Just love your description, midgin - it's the kind of place I'd like the new fish to be. I might have to put them in with the leeks - it's the only 'reedy' type thing around at the moment! :lol:
