Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

I believe my 'thumbs are becoming greener'

2009 I purchased the lovely Fritillaria and placed it in with ferns in this wooden planter. Last year I moved it into my shaded "woodland garden"

April 2011 it has rewarded me with two much larger blooms on one stem. I had been told this is not the easiest of plants to grow, but it appears, it likes the conditions I have provided, and hopefully it will continue to grow into a larger plant with even more blooms.
