In ever thought I’d hear myself say this, but our plants are just too darn healthy! For my horticulture assignment I have to take photos of diseased plant parts, write a report etc and I just can’t find anything!!!! Right now we’re scouring the yard for spots, blights, cankers, wilts and dieback, but no luck yet.

It’s rather hard to believe, really, especially as we have azaleas, camellias and tomatoes every ten paces, but yes: they’ve all remained disease free.

What’s the betting that after I’ve finished the assignment they’ll all contract disease after disease?

Before I go I just have to share this lovely flower: called Zion Copper Amethyst. Gorgeous colours. (Don’t have a pic, worse luck.)
Here’s the address, though:
