Rosa, referring to your garden, not your house! "Better joy in a cottage than unhappiness in a palace".

Oh yes, Diat - I quite agree. And I have gone from total insecurity there to absolute safety here - We dont even have a policeman on Sanday :)

Gorgeous garden RB! As promised here are some pics I took with my phone of my franagipani tree. These photos were taken still later yesterday evening. Took some this morning, but the lighting was too bright and prefer these. A general view, a close up of the leaves and blossoms and taken underneath to show the branches.

Beautiful photos, Val, and it is so easy to take cuttings, as I remember.

Yes RB - you just cut a branch and leave it for a couple of days to dry out somewhat and then stick it in the ground. That's what they tell me, although, with my lack of green fingers, it just hasn't worked for me!! Must try again sometime. :)

Oh, absolutely beautiful! And you said it is also quite fragrant?

The troupe of monkeys which used to pass through several times a day loved to eat the flowers!

Amazing what you can grow in Zone 10 or 9. It's a beautiful tree, Val and I can only imagine the scent. And can only imagine troops of monkeys swinging through my garden! We just have to make do with squirrels.

It was my 5 dogs Number One entertainment of the day, Diat, chasing the monkeys. Maloo used to sit at the bottom of the tree, barking at the alpha male, which was about 20 times bigger than her!
