A lovely vibrant colour I do like these I’ve just had a look to see where I might squeeze one in. It’s so difficult- too much choice and not enough space 🤔😁 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr @gwenniemom thank you both ☺️ they are interesting looking flowers, and so soft too 🥰 would love more in the garden as I’ve seen cream/yellow, pastel pink, green & white ones 🙈

@KOutdoors thanks Karen 😀 these can get big too so you’d need a fair bit of space 😜 we all need acres of land for the plants we’d like to grow 😂

Very welcome. Did not realize they came in so many colours. Pink and green sound lovely but I do like the red 💗💚♥️

🤔 It sounds like they’ll be too big for the space I had in mind @kez001uk

@hkyfvr I didn’t either but I googled them and had to stop myself getting more 😂 saving up for a good sized Judas Tree so my spending is being limited 😜 the red bottlebrush will be making an appearance tomorrow 😉

@KOutdoors this one doesn’t get too big, 1.5m at most. The red one I think can get gigantic 🙈

Will look forward to the red one. That is the colour I always picture when I think of this. Now I must google Judas Tree. It sounds biblical. 🙏

That’s the only trouble with heavy rain, it wrecks all your delicate plants and flowers and you end up with petals everywhere and droopy stems 🤔 @kez001uk

Very welcome. We are having heavy rains today too for a few days. It is hard on the blooming plants. We take the bad with the good. We hope for more good though 👍😊

@KOutdoors it can be so destructive, especially to the tall plants or ones with lots of petals 😥 still, saves us watering 😉😆

@hkyfvr you must need some rain after the warm weekend but it is too much for the little plants 😔 a little rain and a lot of sun - perfect ratio 😂

comment
jeatacake

It's really odd how you can perceive the temperatures based on expectations. Here when it's say 25C, it feels no different to 35C in Thailand where you expect it to be hot. I've always thought that but just can't really explain it 🤔

3w
comment
kez001uk

@jeatacake I agree! Always just put it down to us not being used to the heat here but we can tolerate it more in other countries when it’s hotter 😕 could be many reasons why but still doesn’t make sense how it feels so much hotter here 😂

@alan1111 they really are! I have been recently, just hadn’t happened before so wasn’t expecting it. Think because the new growth is so early this year it’s taken damage that it usually wouldn’t 😐 here’s hoping I’ve saved a few branches from being flowerless 😅
