Flowers for my mother

Gathering the January flowers from my garden for Wildflower Wednesday.

Many of the flowers in my garden came from my mother’s Camps Bay garden. White Pelargonium, electric pink Salvia greggeiSantolina in the little hedge, tuberous begonia with its interesting leaves and tangerine Bulbine.

Naming of parts at Elephant’s Eye

UPDATE: In November Ungardening Pond is circled with purple spires as I've solved the marginal planting problem.

We are in January looking thru the eyes of the Roman god Janus both towards and back.  Last week I looked towards and chose my first tree for the False Bay garden which waits for us. 

The Story of Elephant’s Eye
Chapter 1

Today I look back at Elephant's Eye. I choose Summer Gold at Paradise and Roses - adding a little bling to your ‘yellow border’. Since I love words and my garden, I am recalling Naming of Parts.

In December 2006 work begins on Pani's Falls
