As we get warmth and rain everything is growing like mad and flowers are opening every day.
FUCHSIA, it is nameless as the shops just sell them under the name “fuchsia”, it is frustrating as I don’t know if it likes shade or sun or if it is winterhardy or not.
SYRINGA VULGARIS BEAUTY OF MOSCOW, the flowers are snowwhite but the buds are a smokey lilac
IRIS PSEUDACORUS or yellow pond iris in the back, the leafs are like swords, they clean the water in the pond, in the front is CALTHA PALUSTRIS, also a good water cleaner, the fishing wire is for keeping the herons from eating our fish.
FIG, my fig tree is comming to life and the figs are growing now, the figs have overwintered as tiny peas so as soon as the weather gets warmer the tiny figs start to grow.

I want to have tea in your garden!
If you are ever in Europe you are always welcome !
Hi, In Castlemaine, fuchsias like dappled light or a shadier situation. They are not frost hardy. The frost cuts them back but they reshoot again.
Oh but there are all sorts of fuchsias, most of them like dappled shade but some like full sun. Some are winter hardier than others though. The most winterhardy of all is the fuchsia magellanica, this one is a bush and you cut it down in Spring, and as you said, they reshoot again. They flower for a long time !
So very, very beautiful.

Those figs are going to be delicious!
I know, I’ve had it for about 10 years I think, we have eaten a lot of figs and I made jam for friends and family 😀
