More late April blooms...

Ah, Spring...

New to the garden... 'Summertime Blueberry' Osteospermum, next to Babiana stricta.

Calandrinia grandiflora... just now starting to bloom. Great plant-- pretty, drought-tolerant, easy to propagate (just pluck a sprig and stick in a pot).

Chinese ground orchids (Bletilla striata)


  1. I love your Osteospermum! Living in Pennsylvania, I cant plant mine until this weekend.

    Are the Calandrinia grandiflora best lept in direct sunlight or shade, or partial shade? I'd hate to put them in the wrong place and have them die.
