A walk around the garden and a look at Fridays sky

 there are certain weeds that I don't mind having in my garden in fact if it has a pretty flower they are welcome.

We have a lot of Periwinkles growing by the house.

 I love this colour of African daises At the moment they are in full bloom it flowers nearly all year round. Last year I collected some seeds from it they are growing well, can't wait to see what colour they will be as I was told they might not be the same as the mother plant.

The name for Violas in Hebrew is Amnon and Tamar (Hansel and Gretel).They are so such a happy flower.

I dont know how a cauliflower  plant got in there with the pansies but I am going to leave it  see what happens.

  Cant beat this plant I have had it since we moved in every summer it looks like it has died, good job that I not a very good gardener .
 Sage is a great plant to have in the grden not just because it is useful in the kitchen and medicine cabinet it also has lovely leaves.

My anemones are still going strong.

  A photo every day from my back door looking west.
It is overcast today with a chance of rain.
More news I will be getting a Brazilian black fig tree this week.
Have a look at Skywatch Friday
