Sure is a fantastic day, parked the car on the canal near the Pepper Canister Church. Took a walk up the canal and it was gorgeous, full of autumnal colour. On through St. Stephens green and down South William Street for lunch. Now in Henry Street. Weather beautiful, town packed, great to be alive on a super day like this.

As Strum says they are Nerines.
If your neighbour is thinning them out (they are corms like daffodil bulbs) he might give you some. Only thing to remember is not to plant them deep, put them with the green shoots above the ground. They take a little time to establish and maybe the first year look puny but at this time of the year they are magnificent. We keep dividing them every year. I'm sure I do it at the wrong time but I usually split them on a dry day in Spring.
Looked up the experts and they say plant in early Winter

They really are magnificent. And at this time of year! Tks Rocker.
I have to admit, gardening is not my strong suit.
Nevertheless, I do love flowers, especially wild flowers. I'm fortunate enough to live near Bull Island and St. Anne's Park, the variety of wild flowers is awesome. And Howth is just down the road. :D :D

So that's what they are called Strum & Rocker - :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
One of my sisters gave me them some years ago and told -as Rocker has said -split the roots and leave them alone-
that I did -now I'm gonna split them again next ???whenever
I too Zirco like wild flowers -cos I dont know how to look after them or gardening for that matter-
There must be 100s of tulip bulbs buried in my back garden -where the ...... they are god knows -maybe they are growing down under :lol: :lol:
Bugs have you noticed 100s of tulips growing away on their own anywhere??? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Fog is a funny thing. Theres a lot of it out my way tonight - sweeping down around a mediun sized Birch tree in the garden which is acting like a 'lightning conductor' to the moisture in the air. The moisture is then dripping off the leaves in such volume that its actually raining under the tree!

I'm confused. Is the date stamp correct? No, Grammer I haven't seen tulips for years.

:lol: :lol: Just thought I'd bring this topic up to top of the class.

Glorious morning here. We will all be up to sunshine frolics today :lol:

Just back from my second visit to Croatia, on the Istria peninsula.The locals never discuss the weather and boy Oh boy do they have some mixture. Last year the seas were rough and mountains high and all the pleasure crafts could not sail. This year while mostly very hot and sunny the seas were rough and the one day it rained, it rained sheets and sheets of it with fantastic thunder and lightening. Now, I find myself looking at their weather and they are having monumental rainfall this week. Have decided that I am not going to moan about any climatic conditions any more....well for the moment at least :lol:
