Meanwhile in the greenhouse - a surprise !
This is the time the Epies begin blooming , sometimes I miss them if they flower at night , as some of them do . I returned from our recent break away to find withered blooms .
This morning it was a wonderful surprise to be greeted by this lovely flower .
Epie is short for Epiphyllum .
I think that this one is called Epiphyllum Communion . How apt that it should open it's bloom on a Sunday .
The greenhouse was filled with it's sweet perfume .
After the Epies have finished flowering , I will be tidying them up , pruning and taking cuttings , giving them a good feed and re potting where necessary .
Labyrinth update - I got the pathway cut early this morning and I think it's looking good !
