My Favourite Portulaca Photo Of 2015
Of course, it is apricot coloured. :) Normally I do a garden update on the first Sunday of the month, so here is a quick look at the backyard.
The new portulacas are doing well.
The sunflowers have begun to develop their flower heads. The chooks will deeply enjoy the seeds!
The cat grass probably needs a trim back. There is not a huge amount going on in the covered garden box. This may have been a garden FAIL.
Also, my apologies for not remembering last week, for Andrew and anyone else who wanted to see the flytrap a week later once it caught a lot of flies, here is the link which will take you to the pic. Don’t click if you don’t want to see some very dead flies. ;) If I had to guess how many are in there, I’d say somewhere between 100-200. There are 5 other ones just as full.
Snoskred On Sundays 2016
For the past 6 months I have been participating in Sunday Selections via River from Drifting Through Life. A few weeks ago I also started linking up with Sunday Snap over at JibberJabberUK. I’m going to keep linking up with both of these going forward and I will be keeping an eye out for other link up opportunities.
From today onwards, I will be providing a very simple link up option here for anyone posting photos on their blog on a Sunday – known as The Sunday Linkup. This linkup is via Simply Linked, which I wrote a post about a while ago.
I hope that providing a simple way to link up might encourage more bloggers to join in and post images that would otherwise have remained hidden in folders on their computers forever.
If you are reading this, and you have folders on your computer with digital photos in them, why not join in? Everyone is welcome.
Adding your link to the list takes mere moments and I will promise to visit – and comment – on the links added each week.
The Rules –
There are only two rules. No spam links will be accepted. Your post must contain at least one image.
To share images which might not otherwise see the light of day on your blog. To find new blogs and bloggers who you may not have found otherwise.
What Do The Numbers Mean?
I use week numbers so I can keep track of how fast the year is going. This is week one of 2016, so there will be 52 posts this year.
The Sunday Link Up
Link Title – The name you want to appear with your link eg Sunday Selections @Snoskred 1
Email Address – You can feel free to put in a fake one eg email@example.com – I’m not going to be emailing you, unfortunately I cannot remove this field.
URL – The link to your post.
The linkup will remain open until I close it, most likely on the following Saturday.. So you can add a post from any day of the week if you like.
Also Linking Up With
Sunday Selections @ Drifting Through Life – Sunday Snap @ JibberJabberUK – The Maple Hill Hop @ Maple Hill 101

Oh yes, the fly trap. Thanks for that….I think.
Better in there than flying around my face while I am trying to replace the chooks water, Andrew! ;)
That’s a very effective fly trap! I’ll have to scroll back and learn how to make one, (buy one?)
The portulacas are looking very nice, will you keep them in pots or plant them out?
It is something you buy from a hardware store – we get the Envirosafe one. You do have to buy attractant and replace it regularly – we do it once a week or once every two weeks during fly season. The replacing is not an awesome process because the stuff smells Not Great, but that is why the flies love it. :)
Love,love, love that apricot portulaca. It is a brilliant photo of it too – looks almost rose like.
Phone cameras are getting pretty incredible these days – that pic was taken with my mobile phone.. ;)
I absolutely adore that apricot flower–so much that I would fly down there to steal it, if it would survive in our current 20 and 30 degree temps. (I’m talking -temps in Celcius) :)
I wonder how Portulacas would do in those kinds of temperatures? I may have do do some research on this, it is an interesting question.. would succulents freeze?
Thank you for popping over throughout 2015. It always seems very exotic to me see photographs of someone’s life on the other side of the world!
Great flower photos! Thanks for the warning about the fly trap. I’ll opt out!
That is one of my very favorite colors for flowers! I just found you link up and will try to link up next week. If you are looking for other link-ups, I have a ‘photo memes’ tab on my blog with many choices for each of the week.
What gorgeous portulaca plants! I never thought to grow my own sunflowers for chickens, but that’s a great idea! Thanks so much for joining us on The Maple Hill Hop this week! I will try to link up with you (I have had difficulty in the past.) ;0D
