Blooming wonderful!!

The 1st of November is probably the most important date in the contiental florist's calender. Throughout Europe people flock to the cemetries ladden with flowers for thier near and dear ones.
The chrysanthemums which we have planted in net covered green house thingy have provided and oustanding harvest this year. In the foto is Tia Maria with the variety "Anastasia" just in front. This plant alone provided 20 full size single blooms. She provides me with eggs and cakes, and was the lady that fitted my kilt.

garden maitenance or bad thought process??

I maintain a large school not too far from where i live. It amazes me the stupidty of the design of the green or garden area.
Surrounding the concrete playing fields there are mature oilve trees, the olives when ripe fall and are like marbles for the kids to play football on. Maybe that is the secret of why the Spanish National football team are current world and football campions.
Eucalyptus trees have alson been planted, they stand at some 12m and constanly shed bark and branches regularly fall, on top of the goals. I presume Iker Casillas trained there and that is why he is so slight of foot.
The public car-park has those stupid flower beds - those of some 40cm broad, which only serve as rubbish collectors.
I suppose there must be something in the rumour that the original design was comissioned by some cousin of Paco who's kids don't go to that school.
