A change took place slowly in the balcony garden, I embraced flowers. Sure there was always the hibiscus and the two abutilons, and all the veggie flowers, but they have never featured very heavily on my planting agenda. Then slowly but surely more little floral numbers began to populate the garden. There were the two new fuschias (though the white and purple one I've blogged about before). The frilly pink and purple one is delightful, while the purple and white one seems pinker in some lights.
The random rockery mix which produced these flowers (I can name all of them except the pink one, any help?)
The portulaca kept its centre position on the table. But it was joined for a while by a gazania.
This plant which the lovely fellow gardener L gave me finally decided to flower (it's been a while coming, but what the heck is it?)
Even two of the mints joined in! The bees love the berry and cream mint in particular.
I've always had a few floral additions to the garden before but it has never been this crowded or free-ranging. Any ideas on what my mystery plants are?
Oh and if you want to see some other florals - check out my poor sewing attempts on my other blog, A Teetoal 2012 (it's what I do when I'm not drinkin')
