|I received a cosmos seed growing kit as a retirement present last year.|
Paul on the other hand is a very keen gardener and a plantsman. He tends his plants everyday. He is loathe to leave them for more than a single night now the weather has warmed up. The ones pictured below are generally considered difficult to grow.
Here are some of his favourite specimens. Starting with some of his Iris collection.
|Iris nigricans. The national flower of Jordan.|
|Iris X 'Warlsind'|
Here is a pretty South American Specimen.
And this one is South African
|Disa X 'Inca Warrior'|
And finally his blue poppies!
They look particularly good when photographed at night.
|This belongs to the 'Fertile Blue Group'|
Our move to Devon is scheduled for late summer so Paul is having a busy time keeping his favourite plants alive in pots ready for the move. Meanwhile I will continue enjoying my gardening.
