I Stole This Week's Flowers

My brother's daphne bush needed a trim. Well I thought so. No point of throwing away what I cut off. Daphne is surely one of nature's finest smelling plants.

  1. I've heard so often how sweet and pretty Daphne is, but I've never seen any until now. Every time I ask for it at the nurseries, it seems to be the wrong season. Now, of course, I don't have a garden, so I can stop looking for one. There are garden areas around the blocks of flats and they're quite nice too, but not individually owned.

  2. They smell lovely. I think part of it's poisonous so don't eat it!

  3. I've seen cuttings like I took for sale at our flower markets. Do yourself a favour and buy some, perhaps next year now, mid winter. You will love it.

    Scott, I don't normally suggest that R throws some of our weekly flowers into a stir fry. However, I did not know it was part poisonous.

  4. It's beautiful and looks familiar. I wonder if it is grown over here also. My google search was of no help.

  5. THAT's not stealing but recycling!

  6. I will have to get one of those - I have never seen one of them in a nursery - but maybe different plants do well down there

  8. Oh yum, I love Daphne. There's some in a garden on the route I take to get chai, I can smell it but I can't see it.

  9. Linda, it is a cold climate plant, so I guess it would be in cold areas. Not where you live I think.

    Course it is Peter. I was just shaping the bush.

    MC, as per Linda. Get one once you move.

    Red, not at all. Some things he does not see, and never has, regardless of his brain injury.

    Grows quite easily Fen. Buy some and plant it. It is a nice thing to do for someone who might appreciate it in the future, even if the cat lady moves on.
