All lovely, I must get out & take some pics of mine, no roses I donít like thorny plants (memories of childhood being forced to weed the front garden by my grandma, a pain in the bum, literally ) 😂

Calibrachoa now three years old growing in a very exposed wooden box planter up about 1.5m. Seems to like I though!

Gorgeous rose with a fantastic scent (forgotten its name, seem to remember it's something to do with Queen, Empress, or even Princess, plus something with an African or Arabian 'flavour' - please share if you happen to know!  ;))

Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

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

Achillea that I grew from seed last autumn.  Most are in the garden at home, but I had 3 spare that I bunged into a bit of the plot  :)

You will make a lot of bees very, very happy Plot1  :lol: 

I've let some of mine flower in the garden at home and they are mostly full of bee backsides, where they are heads down and burrowed in gorging themselves  :D

Dahlias at home.  I've treated myself to a couple of big, dark brown salt glazed pots and this selection of peachy, apricot and soft orange colours looks lovely in them and against the weathered brick of my old house  :D

Penhill Watermelon, Julie One and Nicholas.

Been a bit lax keeping this up to date  :lol:

The autumn cyclamen are in full swing now.  They have self seeded all over the place and this one is in the path next to my back gate.

The dwarf Japanese anemones are also flowering well.  This is one of the Pretty Lady series and I think it is Emily, but I am not totally sure of that.

New year and there were some flowers around - not many, but something pretty to share  :)

The Garrya I started the thread with is back out in flower, with some red berries from Nandina in the foreground to set it off.

Then a cheerful little viola that is sitting in a pot of bulbs that are just shooting.  I have bulbs coming up everywhere and some nice new ones to share when they are out, but the viola steals the show for today  :)
