    Can you add the name of the plants please.

    You have come to the right place to show your garden plants off.

    Today March 1 is our first day of Autumn, we still have plenty of flowers and the Autumn flowers are not that far behind.

    We will be getting all the Autumn deciduous trees colour very soon naturally every thing is depending on our weather.

    The wife is picking fresh flowers every morning at the moment.

    Hi Keith!

    First, flowers' names:

    the first one is called "Rose de Noël" which means "Christmas' Rose" and it is a Helleborus niger!

    The second one is called "Perçe-Neige". (Is it called snowdrop in english?) and it is the family of Amaryllidaceae. I'm sorry, I don't know which species it is!

    Keith, if you have the opportunity, I'll be glad to see pictures of Australia's Autumn! :)

    I've finally achieved to add picture on this forum, so I'll be glad to share other plants' pictures!

    Besides, I have a little "water basin" that I'vemade with my brother, we try to keep it very natural since there is not a lot of natural water for insects in my neighborhood!
    In summer you can see a lot of insects as butterfly, dragonfly, etc...! I'll share pictures if you want! =)

    Hellebores grow like weed in our garden they are dropping seeds every year plus the plants are getting bigger.

    They might get a little general ferts like every thing else in the garden several time a year.

    Here are a few of my Hellebores

    No they grow wild in the garden I use them as a ground cover, never prune them or give them special care.

    Our garden is down at the moment, the cold weather is not far off but in late Autumn and early Spring the garden is always at its best.

    Some of the Camellias are starting to flower now and always gives us a good shop and plenty of house plants.

    Beautiful EV!

    I'm very jealous of your stream/river running past your garden :)

    Our garden is far from the best a few Camellias are in full flower and plenty of bulbs have started to shoot.

    Its cold and wet but fantastic for the garden.

    Thank you Jason,

    but the stream also means almost yearly floods all over the garden... (sometimes up to 1 m high)
    But it's worth the price - nobody can build between my house and the free landscape...
