LAVENDER IN JANUARY.
This is especially for Nature Girl in Canada and anyone else under heavy snow at the moment. The one on the left was a diddy-little self seeded bit last Spring and it's busy making its flowers for this year. The beautiful French lavender on the right I think has been grown in Holland and imported. I've left it in its pot so that I can move it around, according to the weather.
And while blogger isn't playing up this morning, here's another beautiful plant given me by a dear friend for my birthday recently. Its vibrant yellow brings a real dash of sunshine under the pergola.
Anyone know what it is? It's leaves are papery and used a lot in dried flower arrangements, I think. I'm not very good at plant names and even when I do discover the Latin names, I forget them.
There's that creeping, evergreen pink daisy plant in the background - aptenia cordifolia. I refer to it so often, this name has stuck.
