They are perennial.. so now I know a little more about them. There are over 28.000 current accepted species in the world.
I am looking forward to buying my next one, and reading up more about them.
Its over 35º most days here .. very typical of Alentejo weather.. These past three days, its been 40º - bit of a heatwave..
The garden is looking good.. am pleased that I put in the automatic watering system.. it helps. I still have to water some of the pots, but thats something I like to do.
Its 2.30pm GMT time ... The birds are all sleeping in the Oleander trees keeping cool.. The horses are down the bottom of the land, under the shade of the olive trees.
Its taken me some years, to get the garden looking as it does.. Gardening is so rewarding.. I dont think I will be slowing down too soon..
I have pink,white and deep magenta colors of Oleanders.
I counted last week.. I have 36 rose bushes. They continue to give me so much pleasure too.
Thank you for your kind comments on my last post.. It was so nice to see you all again.
