Garden stuff!

I don't usually post over the weekend as all most of my regular lurkers readers are out on the lash, or entertaining family and friends. I have no problem with this, as I think you should all enjoy the f*ucking freezing weather we have here! Global warming??! Anyway, some photos for you.

Dad and his Azaleas

Thanks again to 'SIS' for the photos! I hope this cheers your weekend up. Click on each photo and have a roam round.

1st!
As always John, I really appreciate photos of your garden & all of your dads hard work. :-)

I think I've mortally wounded my bonsai eeeek! Er, also, could you ask dad if he knows anything about clumps of white furry looking stuff that happens to be invading my oleander. Thanks :-)

Your garden is looking very colourful john, and I see you have a chimney pot~ I have four, three of which came off our chimneys~ it's cold down here at the moment, worst luck!

A virtual tour of your garden - splendid! Well done, your dad, it's lovely

Your Dad has made a real showplace there! Well done, him!

@Jayne: White furry looking stuff in your oleanders? Maybe it's bunnies! Vampire bunnies! With sharp pointy teeth!

I bet these are photos engineered and faked up by you in PhotoShop 6. They are flowers from Kew Gardens and the Chelsea Flower Show superimposed onto your Dad's garden!

You can't fool me!

The garden looks so beautiful. Despite it being Autumn here my wilderness stays green.I do get to look down on the changing colours in the Botanic Gardens - it has "foreign" plants! Huggles

So azaleas do produce lovely flowers then. Wonder why mine don't.

Really beautiful John! Your Dad is a star. I would love my garden to be full of wonderful flora like that but I have swings, balls hula-hoops, slides and an assortment of other childrens toys instead. One day.......

Absolutely beautiful. Azaleas just don't like me. I've never been able to get them to thrive. These are glorious John.
