…this blog was 5 years old. W’appen? How did a whole year slip by so fast?
Traditions. Are they outmoded fancies? Relevant markers of important occasions? Should Dinah have an annual give-away to celebrate the fact that she still has a blog and readers?
And, should there be a great clamouring from the gallery, what should she give away? Cole Porter springs to mind here!
Another new banner. Croton leaves, this time. Apart from the vibrant colours, I love that all these different colours and patterns are on the same plant! I bet if I walked down the street wearing such a mish-mash people would think (probably say!) “Poor old bat has no idea how ridiculous she looks!” But I get away with it in the garden.
I love the bright blue seeds! They are beginning to lose their “blueness” now as they mature.
Spathyphyllum. Generally called a Peace Lily, but I’ve no idea why. (I did ask Mr.Google, but he was no help.) Anyway, mine was overcrowded in a pot so, once we started to do something along the side fence I split it and brought both pots to the front. Oh boy! Both are flowering madly. And, so far, not objecting to having more light. Confused creatures, like the gardener.
Clerodendrum ugandense With the common monica of “blue butterfly bush.” Wonder why? This is relatively young, so only about 20cms (8″) high, but it will eventually reach 1 metre or maybe more.
Right! So let’s consider this anniversary. If you think we should have a give-away, leave a suggestion in the comments. Yes, I am making you do the work! You can’t expect to wander in and have it all laid out on a plate! What am I – Liberty Hall!
When I hit the “publish” button, WordPress took me by the hand and led me to a page with a quote. Just for me! “I am a drinker with writing problems.”
(That’s Brendan Behan, in case you wondered.)
