Yeah, a phormium or two have been abandoned in an apartment complex's landscaping, so I took parts of two, one red and one green and divided them up....

Right, second attempt now...

In beside the hollyhock, chestnut tree and marigold.  With the recent addition of a teasel,  photo to follow,possibly...





Ah, this one's good. It includes the holly saplings planted by person or persons unknown. Along with a few Bulmers bottles. And some of my marigolds, already in flower



Had to clear away the mare's tail to get this one in...


Optimist...


Three in a bed. The one in the foreground is not expected to survive, it was bone dry.  The one in the middle is by the Herb Robert (hello to Niloufer) and the one at the nend, will have to do as it can...

Took the opportunity to have a look around. Not doing much walking around here since guerrilla gardening dog 2 died. Oh well. Faithful servant and companion....

The news is that there are signs of life, which is good. Will report back in the summer with photos...

Several of the Phormiums (phormia???) have survived, including this one. I always think of Niloufer whenever I inspect them. They had lots of Herb Robert growing beside them!!!



I'll show the others another time...

The plants are doing, 'alright'. Those that are in the ground and left to fend for themselves, that is.

However, I forgot about this one...

which decorates the Courtyard Garden of St. Andrew's Community Centre.  (See Rialto Men's Group on Facebook)

This, however is its normal position...where the senior citizens can see it while eating their lunch.  Grin

Well, a routine inspection a couple of weeks ago results in discovering one has been stolen...



To the thief, if he or she is looking in. If you want any more phormium, go to Bellevue apartments in Islandbridge. Over by the weir, there are several over there, abandoned. Take as much as you want. But please leave any in this location alone.  Magi tag.


Edit to fix the link.
