I was at Behrent, our local flower centre with great discounted plants and look what I found?!
A bushy Christrose plant with 40 over blooms!
This Christrose is SPECIAL. I will tell you why. This is the only `decent`looking flower that would pop up to greet you during cold winter nights of -15C year after year. How amazing is that? Imagine buckets of snow covering your garden with still whiteness and HELLOOOO ... this cutey pie perks out to wish you a good day :-) I have been searching for a beautiful bush like these for many years now and alas, found them and to make you envy me more - I paid 7 Euro for it only :-)
Once the cold dissappears, the flowers will turn purplish green then fall off. But the plant remains green and leaves all intact for the rest of the year so yeah, I´m totally sold on this one!
If you´re a follower of my blog, you would notice how much I love peonies. Last year, Tante Anna came bearing them as gifts but sad to say, it last about a week and that´s it. I planted a Sarah Bernhardt last year however, its not looking good at all with the stem appearing brown and weak so, here´s another two more to add to my collection just incase my current Sarah Bernhardt die on me. So here´s to another Sarah Bernhardt and Karl Rosenfield!
Today´s our 3rd wedding anniversary! Mama Else summon me downstairs for some bubbly this morning and handed me these :-)
Alles gutes ja meine mädchen ...she said :-)
She still calls me little girl ... hehe
