Back from our holiday, and first, I have to give a few heart-felted thanks:
– To Yahoo Mail that didn’t let me login in from a different IP (who can remember the verification question that was set a hundred years ago?) and thus made for a pleasant ‘disconnected’ holiday.
– To the person who took care of our many outdoors and indoors plants.
– To my bloging friends, who kept posting interesting reads that entertained me when I finally opened my email account.
– To WordPress, for incorporating the very useful feature of ‘scheduled posts’.
– And to Roscoea x beesiana which greeted us on behalf of all the garden inhabitants. This hybrid Roscoea (R. auriculata x R. cautleoides) with exquisitely painted flowers deserves probably more attention, but for now gets just my sincere admiration.
You can read about it on the Alpine Garden Society website, where it was featured as Plant of the month – July 2012.
