Good morning GTers! My #orange #osteospermum was a great performer last year, flowering from mid spring until mid winter! In fact it's got a few buds on at the moment! Have a magnificent Monday everyone! 😀

Morning Ian @bigemrg That’s so annoying finally getting a day off to have a visit from “Hector” hope he doesn’t overstay his welcome Ian & soon leaves so you can enjoy the rest of the day. Not to bad here & no rain the Sun has popped out but gone into hiding again 😂 Brilliant pic by the way 👌😍
