From Haugesund. With 3 children and a husband who's seemingly constantly away on business, I garden like it could save my life - and it probably does!

I've had my bougainvillea for many years now, over-wintering it in the orangery and bringing it outside to enjoy/endure the very varied summer conditions we can get around here. This is the best it has ever looked! The summer of 2018 might be one for the record books with unusually warm and stable weather. I feel for the farmers that had to battle draught and fires, but I also have to be happy for my bougainvillea.

It’s beautiful Mona and a rare treat in more northerly climes!

I can't help myself @valjones-hughes! So many fully hardy and more suitable plants out there, yet again and again I feel drawn to the exotic and labor intensive. Quite a contrast to the mossy woodland-y borders I so love in the rest of my garden.

It's stunning Mona. If I got one it would probably be that color. Having nice more tropical plants is a great hobby.

I think it is relieved to be back indoors.
