Gardens: Domestic and Garden Plants

 

Here are a selection of images for those keen on gardens - I am no gardener, but I do love the things I find in gardens.

 

Let's start with a couple of winter images:

Fan Palm in Winter

 

Winter Jasmine

 

A lily

My wife sometimes grows these in the garden in the summer, but have you ever looked closely?

 

 

Clematis

Lavatera

 

Morning glory, Ipomoea purpurea

Tradescantia flower

usually a houseplant, but it grows well in our garden in the summer

 

 

We often find sycamore seedlings growing in our garden. Here is a pair of unripe sycamore seeds.
