"Keryn, your pig face are looking wonderful! My neighbour has them in her front garden and they just completely cover the whole garden. Such a beautiful, but hardy plant.
Barb - very nice succulent garden. Did you know you can eat Purslane in salads?"
"Joseph I see you have the plant we call 'Million Bells' in the hanging basket on the left. I find them so hardy and just flower year after year. What is the climber in the centre, is it a form of Sweet Pea?"
Thanks for your nice comments on my paintings! Yes I've been painting for a few years -- an extension gardening for me, I guess. What I can't grow well, I tend to paint, I guess! Thanks again, Kathleen
"Yeah but you get heaps colder, so I,m sure you feel your heat the same as I feel mine. The plants don,t like our heat however , what I grow would not survive if I did not water them during summer. In fact a lot of people have stopped growing plants…"
"Ixia - The genus Ixia consists of a number of cormous plants native to South Africa from the Iridaceae family. Some distinctive traits include: sword-like leaves, and long wiry stems with star-shaped flowers"
"Thank you Keryn, you obviously are fertilizing just right! Mine are indoors, but it has been a relatively cool summer. I will try just a little fertilizer. At least the plants look healthy and still alive!"
