The fact is, I've missed two regular weekly memes already and it's only Tuesday night! I am sitting at the computer looking across at Monday's vase. There was no way of knowing for certain that Caesalpinia pulcherrima and one stem of Hamelia patens would not survive cutting well. As it happens, it seems they don't! So there went the Monday Vase as yesterday was too busy for a second try. As for today, I felt that turning and watering that compost heap simply had to be done... and I was too bushed afterward to take pictures of the South Border. Trust me, it hasn't changed much since last week!
Instead I took a quiet, fairly random look at the garden, camera in hand. Here is the mini tour.
Caesalpinia pulcherrima, while not useful for bouquets, is growing well in the East Border. It is seen here with Artemesia x "Powis Castle" behind.
