The Year in Review 2012

Another year has come and gone, we are now 2/3’s of the way through our posting in Barbados, where does the time go!

January

I visited the Barbados Horticulture Society Garden Show for the first time. What beautiful hibiscus!

February

Ian had to go to Nassau on business, so I tagged along. Another country to add to my count.

March

A week long cruise to five different Caribbean islands bumped up my country count some more.

April

Had my first face to face visit with the fabulous Mr. T.

May

Back  to visit Brian Bixleys garden, I know feel the need for Sanguinaria canadensis ‘Multiplex’, or double bloodroot.

June

My white eremurus finally bloomed, only took 2 years.

July

Lots of garden visiting going on, this was an amazing garden in Rosedale.

August

Trying to keep up my design skills, despite not working for two years.

September

Yikes, hard to see all my freshly applied gravel

Yikes, hard to see all my freshly applied gravel

Spent most of my first weeks at home, weeding.

October

Got to see a tiny bit of fall colour before we headed back to Barbados.

November

Perfected the art of Sundowners, or cocktails to you northern folks.

December

Christmas on the island, what a glorious feeling.

Interested in what happened last year? You can read about it here, 2010 here.

    2/3rds gone already! time really has flown. I’m quite jealous of that foxtail lily, what a gorgeous plant. I hear they are quite picky about where they will live and bloom so it’s just that much more special.

    I loved seeing your year in review. That double bloodroot is outstanding! I planted the regular bloodroot in my garden last year and have yet to see a bloom. I am hoping.

    That’s a fun post and a lovely bouquet. You are getting your world traveling in. I emailed my snowdrop acquaintance in Canada and am waiting to hear back.
