By the way....

...it did flower for me after all :D



The unseasonably sunny weather over the last few weeks played in my favour so I had this to look at and swoon over out of my garden room window.


Actually it doesn't stop there: there are two more flower spikes, both at the stage this one was at a couple of weeks ago and looking a little dicey as to whether they'll actually make it to full glory.

However it must be said we have now had our first ground frost (to one degree above, so it doesn't really count, but it was a warning shot across the bows). So my triffids are safely stashed in my insulated and soon-to-be-heated greenhouse, which I hope will soon be filled with the scent of gingerlily flowers.

Lovely. I've never dared grow Hedychiums outside but if I did, it would be this one. They're lovely in a greenhouse, partly because of the fragrance, but they're terrible space hoggers. Maybe, when my babies are bigger, I'l lplant offshoot outside.

BTW, frost tonight, I'm told but likely to warm up later in the week. So they'll probably go on for a while yet.

Love Ginger candy, ginger plants,
and ginger body cream and bath.
It is exciting to see a plant bloom. My wisteria bloomed for the first time.
