Miniature Rose

sweet dandelion

Delosperma sp.

the bicycle


  1. Minature roses are lovely. My mother loves them. Hey, looks like all things are a little yellow for your weekend :-) A little bright and cheery. Have a great week ahead!

  2. Beautiful pictures. Is the Delosperma also known as "ice plant?" Does it only bloom when the sun is shining on it? Very pretty and perky!

  3. Mildred, I grew this Delosperma from seed. It was supposed to be Delosperma napiform, but I don't think so. It likes the sun to bloom and only flowers when it's cool. In the summer, it's just a green ground cover. It is known as Ice Plant, but so too with the Lampranthus and Carpobrotus genera. Glad you liked it.

  4. You got me there Prospero, I couldn't for the life of me see a bicycle at first. Seen it now though ! I hope you got that Lemongrass sown ? it takes forever to grow, but it's so expensive in the shop, so maybe it will be worth it. I hope you had a good gardening weekend.

  5. Great rose pictures. I wish I can have more roses blooming in my garden in future.
