Back in January this year, when I first took the plunge to start this blog, I had doubts that I would find much to write about but here I am at entry number 200 and still waffling on about the goings on around my garden. I have been surprised by the number of visitors and the very kind comments left by many. A big thank you to you all.
There is not a lot to report at the moment. I took some photographs yesterday of the few plants which are still in flower. My white Hibiscus bush has been in continuous bloom for over a month. I don't think I have ever seen so many flowers on it.
The small standard rose is showing its second flush of red flowers.
Under that is a self seeded yellow flowering plant which I have to cut back from time to time otherwise it would take over the whole garden.
One small weeping standard bush in the front garden is a mass of red berries. It is another I have to cut back otherwise the trailing branches layer themselves and start rooting.
The petals on this flower are hardly noticeable but has been attracting dozens of hover flies and still attracts scores of wasps - right next to the front gate.
Well, that is about it for number 200. Another 114 days and the blog will be one year old.
