Tamboritha")
Hardenbergia violacea "Happy Wanderer"

Final flower just closed:
Crinodendron patagua

Although it has been pretty mild, I'm surprised at how much of the
tender stuff is still in flower here (south central Hampshire). We are
expecting a frost tonight and perhaps for the next couple of days. I'll
bet the bedding/pot plants will be hit, but expect there will still be a
flower or two on the most sheltered ones.

I'm sure that Charlie and Chris will be doing a lot better in
"equatorial" Cornwall!

Happy New Year!
