Irene, This was what it looked like last week, those Palm looking plants must be hardy.

Comment by: Giovanni on 3rd February 2015 at 06:56

I have those plants in my garden. They are called Trachycarpus Wagnerianus and very hardy!! Mine have reached a height of 6 feet which give a Mediterranean feel!!

I envy you Giovanni..those are my favourite after Wisteria.

Comment by: Giovanni on 4th February 2015 at 08:43

Thanks Maureen. They're in the ground. In pots restricts their growth! I also have a wisteria but in a pot. It spreads like russian vine if unchecked!
Hows the painting. I must confess I havent done any this year! Too cold!!

Might have a bash at that Giovanni..are you not going to get your paints and brushes out as well.

Joking aside, Spring around the corner, time to blow the cob webs off the paint box!
