In February this year a friend was pulling down their house to rebuild. The earth movers were coming in the next day and she invited me to salvage what I could from the garden.
The frangipane tree was such a sweet pink and so large I took six large cuttings. They were left at the bottom of the garden to settle then planted and now my very first frangipane flower from these new trees.
This lavender was grown three small cuttings from my previous home.
These sunny nasturtiums are from a cutting given from a beach garden.
And these beautiful blooms appeared under my entrance stairs after I had removed the large rubber tree blocking their light.
The chrysantheum is from flower heads thrown amongst my vegetables. The flower heads were from dead flowers collected from friends gardens.
The garden was so lifeless when I brought my house and now it is coming alive with color.
