I love succulents, I have lots of them lined out by the back door and outside the greenhouse. I like the different colours and types, and that they are low maintenance!


Apologies again for intermittent posting. The above picture was taken on my tablet due to severe computer and internet problems. A new computer has been acquired (though there’s nothing I can do about the lousy internet) so once I have mastery of the new tech I shall (hopefully) be able to upload some photos from my camera.




I love orchids, and have a few of them in my house. No longer the expensive rarities they used to be, there are modestly priced orchids available all year round to suit most budgets and are easy to care. This is a lovely strident purple and white Phalaenopsis blooming happily, and for a long period, in my dining room.
