Lovely views.
you should try pelargoniums with bi-colored leaves....they come in many flower colors.
keep the snaps under observation for caterpillar attacks....they can spoil the flower buds.
as regards to nasturtiums....caterpillars can be avoided through close observation, early detection and whatever remedial measures of your like, however the good side is that nasturtium has attracted all of them to itself...sparing your other plants....

Spring sure has arrived with all its colors in your garden. I haven't seen such healthy geraniums in the Punjab area.
How old is your brunfelsia?

Quite old I will have to search my library to be exact.
It was with me in 2004 but was shifted to this location three years ago, :?: how the time passes.

Sir why no love to roses? Such prodigious gardening! And they are totally missing from your garden and posts, not challenging enough? or what I am missing :geek:

I never said I do not like Roses, I simply can not afford them.
1, I am short of space.
2, I can not provide the Husbandry required to keep them Happy.
