 News has arrived from Austrlia of the  award  of  the John Pascoe Fawkner Medals  for  horticultural excellence to two members of the  Victoria AGS group . These well deserved medals have  been awarded from the Royal Horticultural Society  of  Victoria to Fermi  de Sousa and Viv  Condon ! These  two, well known members here too, of  course, are  real "engine-houses" of the  AGS Victoria group.





 Huge congratulations to you both! Very well deserved indeed.

My word, you're garden is a real spring picture, fermi- so many beauties ! Our garden is largely fifty shades of  green at this time  of  year in Aberdeen so very exciting to see  all the  colour  you have.

Lovely show of spring colour, Fermi. Is Scilla italica a well-behaved? I bought some last year, but was a bit hesitant, given the invasive nature of our native bluebells in Scotland. I wondered if this scilla would be just as thuggish?

The garden has a lot of green in it - mostly weeds but I can crop most of them out of the pics  ;D
The big difference between our gardens at the end of summer is that ours will be 50 shades of brown!

Hi Carolyn,
that clump of Scilla italica has been in the rock garden since around 2014 and first flowered in 2016. So far I see no evidence of any tendency to invasiveness. Fingers crossed that that wasn't "famous last words"!
