Excitingly the bud from the Calceolaria Uniflora Darwinii is getting very very big. Everyday I think the bud won't get bigger but it does. There is even another one coming through. The plant seems happy though there is a bit of browning on the edges of some of the leaf margins. Now it is getting sunnier and hotter I will probably move it to a slightly shadier place.
First to bloom in the water Iris container is the Iris Kaempferi (same as Ensata). It is full of buds so should put on a nice show. The blooms are a pretty purple and are impressively big. Two other water irises should bloom as well this year but probably with less flowers.
