Just starting to warm up here too, although the sun doesn't eat through your 
clothes like it did in Castlemaine. I have been busy unpotting daff bulbs, 
and all my little South African bulbs. These can mostly stay out of the 
garden until April, giving me some breathing space, and time to get on with 
planting out irises.
I have 100 PCI's seedlings to plant out in pots, but that will have to wait 
now until after Christmas. I have 1 PCI in bud. A gorgeous dark blue plicata 
edge, and heavy pencilling in the same colouring, on the falls, style arms 
dark, dark blue, and standards arms a few shades lighter. I have had some 
exciting patterns from Ghio mixed seed.
Last year I had PCI's bloom well after the TB's had finished. Just a few 
flowers here and there.

A couple of TB's lingering on. THRILLER, and a seedling look alike for 
Sooner Serenade, that is a cross of Supreme Sultan X London Lord.
My 1 and only JI just budding up, and a few buds left on Roy Davidson.

>Time for our wonderfully relaxed Aussie Christmas with ham, prawns, 
>cherries and strawberries etc. Aussie's are very schizophrenic at 

Not here Colleen. I have a large Turkey to stuff tomorrow, and will bake 
vegetables and make gravy to go with it.
No pudding, but I will be making a large brandy trifle, which my family 
love, and lots of traditional nibbles to fill up on, the we all find 
somewhere to sleep it off, or curl up with a Christmas book for a cosy read.
Cheers, and have a happy one everyone,
Jan Clark, in Aus.
