>It’s technically Autumn but you wouldn’t know it.
Not up here anyway
So here’s a little of what’s out and about at the moment
[ with added comments for Alwen ]
This first is one of the taller Plectranthus … no idea which one , and it would be about 75cm/30 inches tall. you can see two types of leaf in the pic. The smooth ovoid ones belong to a ficus that shares the same pot. A cutting from the previous neighbours, Brenda and PND
and this second one – which I consider one of the triffids – is a succulent of some sort, another cutting from Brenda and PND.
Now this next one is a Bromeliad of some sort and although I’d never seen this particular one before, and bought two of them last weekend at the Farmer’s Market – and apparently paid too much into the bargain – it turns out that just about everyone I know ” could’ve given you one!”
and ” just threw out a whole bunch “
Bromeliads are naturally more of a tropical plant so have to be a bit sheltered from the frosts.
Mine are all in pots on the verandah or in the shadehouse cunningly disguised as a cat-run.
Just not this lot.
