Had a fantastic day at Roma Street Parklands the weather was perfect.
Short sleeves all day Tony wore his shorts I am not ready for them yet.

The Cineraria were so beautiful I had no idea you could grow them here
I used to grow them down South so for all the girls that miss there other gardens
Maybe these will bring back memories.

Seeing there are 15 pics I will do them in the thumbnail size
As Betty only has Dial-Up.. Click on for my normal size photo's
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.. banana banana

They are pretty. My mother used to grow them many years ago and used to see them in older gardens. I think they like too much water for too many to grow now.

Pretty is right Gail.. Being a Perennial you would think they would not need a lot of water, though here you would probably have to grow them as an Annual if I see punnets around next Autumn or whenever I will buy one, mind you these plants were half the size and less than what I used to grow down south.

I had never seen such a display of them and other plants in my life it was unbelievable gasp

Lovely MA and such great colours. I also grew them down south , they grew there more like shrubs and put on a magic display ,
MA how do you go about putting on those smaller pics , they would be good sometimes as you say for members with dial up.

It was years ago that my mother grew them, when they still lived in Brisbane, and I'm pretty sure they were just treated as annuals. I suppose they are like a lot of the other perennials that are grown as annuals as they get a bit ratty looking after flowering.

Gwen this is how I put thumbnails on in Photobucket

Open your Album Page tick in the square box under the photo you want
Go down to the bottom on the page and on the right side you will see
On a Blue background ** Generate HTML and IMG Code click on that
It will take you to the next page and on the third one down
The **IMG clickable thumbnails for message boards - recommended **
Copy and Paste that to your message here..

If you get stuck PM me

You are right Gwen they did grow a lot bigger

Sorry Gail I did not see your reply there.
Yes a lot of plants have to be treated as annuals here.
I found the same with Federation Daisies too Sad
