    What’s looking good is the thick layer of mulch everywhere.

    Thank You Sjoerd
    When they're young can have problems with slugs and snails, but last few years no problems because it's always been dry weather.

    Well your all posting really lovely photos of your flowers. I hope I get better closes up soon.
    ....Well I have just ordered a new Camera a Cannon make and it is good for distance and close ups shots..lets hope so...or I will be:frustrated:..for sure.
    I have been using My Husbands camera now for quite some time, I must say I can feel it is wearing out..the close ups are not good at all...I keep having to turn it off and on to get some focusing..So the decision was made yesterday....

    These are called Kniphofia 'Royal Standard' but only about half a metre tall.

    We have a Texas native plant, Turk's Cap, that is colorful and that the hummingbirds love. I've been told that the berries that appear later make a good jelly. I've never tried that.
