Every Spring I spend time in the garden "renovating". This is, no doubt, a result of endless winter days flipping thru gardening magazines or, if I'm lucky, from an inspirational tropical vacation. Here's a few shots of my recent labour. My newly added tree fern, Dicksonia antartica, and Jubea chilensis in a raised rocky bed. The big pseudostem of Musa sikkimensis, recently moved (thank you Barrie). And my Musa basjoo stalks, starting to push leaves. My indoor efforts include germinating Castor bean, Rincinus communis 'Carmencita', and 4 flats full of trimmed echeveria cuttings from my cool greenhouse. The warm days of Spring cannot arrive too soon for me!
