Another holiday snap. I love these wonderful shrubs and I could do with this colour in my garden. It really is a stunner 🌞🌞#holiday #sunnyspain 👊💛💛

I had a red one of these many years ago in a pot, but it didn't do very well & struggled in winter, even indoors. Probably due to low light levels?

@jeatacake Yes I am Jeff. I'm enjoying it but ready for home I really miss my mum (she's still not quite well from two infections she's had) and I miss my cats and Millie, and of course, my garden!! 😊

Yes, I know those feelings when you reach the end of a holiday. Enjoy your remaining time there & have a safe journey home too 😊💕

@jeatacake You're so kind Jeff thank you. I've not been sunning myself all the time, infact some people will say 'you've been away for 2 weeks where's your tan?' I don't usually lie in the sun as I'm fair skinned but I love the sun. I've got some writing done and more to do before it's packing up time 😊😊

I'm the same. Prefer to get out & about sight seeing rather than sunbathing. Glad you're enjoying it there & that it's been a productive time 👍😊
