Chilli Day!

Almost too beautiful to pick... 

Thai chilli 'Siam' (my favourite)

Front 'Red Cap Mushroom' hot hot hot, behind is a Thai Birdseye. 

Forget, label toddlered, Anaheim? Looks totally different to the Anaheim I've grown in the past. 

Forget. Label also toddlered! Possibly Anaheim. 

Most of these beauties will be made into Pik Nam Pla (chillies in fish sauce), Pik Nam Som (chillies in vinegar), or frozen.

Phase Pink

I blame my daughter, the pink-obsessed five year old, for putting me on to the joys of pink! 

Agastache 'Sweet Lili'
Salvia 'Sensation'
Salvia 'Angel Wings'
Salvia 'Navajo Rose'
Salvia 'Raspberry Royal'
Dianthus 'Nola'
And Anthemis tinctoria 'EC Buxton,' which is not pink, for luck!

Kokedama part four

Forgot to ever photograph or post this one from at least a month ago. Baby Parlour Palm (scientific binomial forgotten) from Ikea in kokedama ball, blue glass dish also Ikea (finally found a use for it!). I think the palm might actually be growing! He gets watered (soaked) about once a week. Behind is a bargain plant I found a couple of weeks ago, whose name -common or otherwise - completely escapes me, brassy pot from the Salvos. 
This pair lives in my bathroom at the moment.
