'Surprise, Surprise'

Last year's surprises - acanthus mollis and clematis texensis
'Princess Diana' - both have been in the garden for some years but have never flowered before. Must have been all that rain !

- the clematis flourished in the summer of 2008 but once again sadly the acanthus was a complete no show. So much for my rain theory.


  1. I always fail miserably with Acanthus - it's a running joke with my OH now, every time we see a huge, thriving clump.

  2. Glad to hear that it is not just me then HM. All leaf and no flower here again this summer. I am threatening it with the chop if it does not flower yet again come 2009.


All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so. If you have any specific questions I will either reply to them here or you can email me at :


- Anna.
