My Xeronema plant has 9 flowers out at the moment.( the most ever at one time ) It is quite a rare plant so I'm happy with it. ( Xeronema callistemon or Poor Knights Lily ) ( pronounced zeronema ).
The Netball result at the Commonwealth Games was wonderful. Well done the Silver Ferns! ( golden ferns now! )What a long hard quirky game it was - I couldn't watch at some stages and had to get up and leave the room - I get too excited. Congratulations on your Gold Medal ladies! ( sorry Australian friends - you played so well too, but we love to beat you sometimes! )
Thank you for your confirmation of my block placement. I am going with that layout ( previuos post ). A few parts are getting sewn together every spare moment I get. Wet weather is helping.
It is fine this morning but things are still drying out, so I will be down in Kiwifruit block 3 later on. The green shoots are growing a little every day. Some flower buds are visible, but it is a slow season so far.
