A couple of weeks ago i trimmed back the red hibiscus, against some advice, because many of the branches were overly long and thin (in my opinion) and the flowers were quite small. It was blooming but the flowers were small. I didn't like doing it, but i did. This morning i was rewarded with this lovely and robust bloom. Now joining it are 2 areca palms, 1 hot pink bougainvilla starting out in life, the crepe myrtle bush, a Dracaena reflexa (Song of India), and amaranth and dill seeds (which are not looking like anything at all). Also i am promised the deepest of purple bougainvilla that should be here in 3 days.

Thank you. It looks very lonely on it's own as there are no other flowers apart from a few young roses in my garden as yet.

My Peiris is a stunner for a short time, obviously here for a good time, not a long time. I make sure I look at it every day whilst it is in bloom. Can you see my new obolisk peeping around the corner. The local Mens Shed make them and sell them very reasonably. I've painted this one grey and glued a rabbit on top so it's the rabbit peeping around the corner .:love: I love it.
