Just another grevillea, this one, 'Pick of the crop' I bought mail order from Garden Express about 6 months ago and it has just now progressed to its first flower. Foliage is a bit prickly but looks like the flower will make it worth the effort.

Thank you Inga, a fellow gardener in Vancouver (Vancouver Island) tells me spring is just around the corner, though it's still pretty cool.

Vancouver Island is always a little ahead of us.
We still have pockets of snow hiding in the shade, but I discovered the first snowdrops, primula and a Christmas rose in the park. We do have lots of sunshine, but still a little cool.

Must be lovely to glimpse those first signs of new life after a harsh, white winter, inga. I still miss snowdrops, I use to grow them in Sydney (800 kilometres south) before we moved to where we now are - Sydney winters were just cold enough to enjoy them.

Ummm, the K. Paws, Chas, really don't like too much shade and certainly not heavy soils; sandyish, well drained is their natural growing medium. Anyway, lets know how they go.
