2 Alstromerias and 2 Heleniums - all brilliant bloomers and all of special significance to me because they were either bought by, with (on one of our many holidays together), or propagated from plants belonging to my best friend's mum, who died just over 2 years ago aged 92.  :wub:

They’re lovely, how tall are they?

Somewhere between 3-4ft max I reckon.
Sow your seeds, plant your plants, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older.

The plant second from the left is Helenium Wyndley, the Alstroemeria with the strikingly dark foliage and stems to the right of it is 'Indian Summer' - can't remember the other two (but at least I've learnt how to spell Alstroemeria correctly!  :lol:)

Very undemanding in my sandy soil in a sunny position, all you need to remember is to get there before the slugs do when they start to regrow in spring.

Sweet peas are in charge at the moment - at least a bunch a day! I also wish that the scent of a broad bean flower could be cultivated, because it is fabulous! I used to walk the dog through a field of these and it was almost intoxicating!

And the next heart-gladdener is the first sunflower out! We have just one out of several, and it's like having a light on in the garden!

That's beautiful - both the shape and the colour.
