Where has the year gone??
I won't post any arty stuff tonight as I'm awaiting approval on two commissions so they might need a bit of tweaking. I'll post them once I know they've been accepted and I can call them finished.
In the meantime, I had a real 'blast from the past' today by way of an email from Singapore. I haven't seen Lyn and Glenn since I stopped being 'ex pat' and left Singapore about 15 years ago. The scary thing is that their young children who I remember very well are now adults - two are in their twenties. Where does the time go?? I didn't know that Glenn was artistic but this is what he has been up to:
Glenn's paintings and books
I look forward to seeing more of his work soon ... and Lyn will be setting up a Blog for him I believe :-)
If you saw my earlier posts about the unidentified plants that have appeared in my garden recently, you'll recall that we decided they were Yuccas but I didn't know what variety. The buds were quite deep red coloured.
Well this is what they looked like a couple of days ago. The red buds have turned into creamy/pink flowers but I still can't work out the variety. I've been trawling the internet and the variety that looks most similar is Yucca Torreyi (Torrey's soapwort) but that appears native to the USA. Of the UK varieties Yucca Gloriosa seems likely but the pictures I've seen have variegated leaves - mine has plain green leaves.
So I'm still stumped .. any ideas please. This is a photo taken on Wednesday, before the heavy frosts started. Actually, the plant doesn't seem any the worse for being exposed to frost
The buds are still a long way from being properly open so it will be interesting to see whether it is frost hardy or will just die back.
That's it for tonight. Enjoy your Friday Evening (and the weekend of course).
