Although it is going to be hot again today, the recent spate of relatively mild weather has awoken some pretties in the balcony garden.
Slowly but surely this yellow daisy thingo (still not good on plant names, so we will have to use their inept gardener names for the moment) opened up.
Even the Zinnias in the hanging basket came out to play in the milder weather (there are now about four different colours of these but I have to stand on a chair to reach them, so maybe I will post on that tomorrow) I was inspired to plant Zinnias after a post by Jamie of Garden Amateur who showed just how much they stood up to the warmer weather. I suspect with my penchant for overcrowding and the sunny spot they have found themselves in, I probably wont have such a high level of success. The test begins with today's warmer day
And on the window sill, the strawberry plant which faced eviction not much over a week ago is earning its reprieve by flowering and fruiting in extraordinary fashion. This photo in no way does justice to she sheer amount of flowers this plant is putting out. I guess she knew her days were numbered and woke up one more time. Nice work.
