What gorgeous pictures of the holiday flowers in your garden! My mother and her father were wonderful with flower gardens and growing plants but I certainly didn't inherit the "green thumbs" in the family!

Your "dunno" is one of the Kalanchoes. Does it grow about two feet tall? Probably the kalanchoe fedschenkoi..according to my very old copy of "What Flower Is That?"

I actually thought it was a Kalanchoe, but decided to check. I got an online row from somebody when I guessed before. I checked in my book and indeed it is. It is one of those grey leaved ones that are fairly visible around Adelaide.

Thanks for that.

I love agapanthus but the plants always end up disappearing from my garden after a year or two.
I like that begonia too. I had one like it for years as a houseplant but it did not like the new conditions when we moved and gave up the ghost.

Came over from David's. I was just remembering my summer job at a lovely garden few years back...

So What a lovely surprise it was to come here and see such beautiful images. Agapanthus is my favourite.

Love the cactus flower.

My agapanthus are starting to flower, those things are freaking amazing. I had them in a garbage bag and MPS threw them ON the garden and they are flourishing!

Wow those are really nice! Hope I'll have something like them in our garden when we transfer to our next home. Happy holidays!

Like your collection of flowers. It is intreresting to see that you have agapanthus in Adelaide. It is indigenous to the Eastern Cape and we often see it i the wild
