Splash of Colour


Tuesday 09 September, 2014 by Uncle Spike

I mentioned this before, but a few years ago, we took a small bucket of lily’s and year on year have split them into literally hundreds and hundreds of them. We use them all over, up against chainlink fencing, as a dividing border, and in patches on their own.

Makes a great splash of summer colour 🙂




And a few days later…






And here as a border…




And finally, to brighten up some fencing 🙂

    Your Canna’s are beautiful! I have the exact same one, given to me last year with the understanding that it was a orange Canna. When it bloomed this year I was ELATED! It is a beauty that is for sure.
