Orchid:  Maxillaria tenuifolia (narrow-leaved Maxillaria, or coconut orchid)

Flowers are about 3 - 4 cm across.  Smells like a day at the beach, with a scent exactly like coconut tanning oil. I've had this one about 5 years now.  Grows indoors when cold, outdoors when warm or hot.  Not sure from the preview whether the photo is attached or not(?)

Yes it is & very pretty too

Love that bog garden!
I know we are in a global economy because my favorite gardening hat, purchased in the United States, was made in China by a Swiss company and has a label in Spanish.  (They all deserve their piece of the pie, wouldn't you agree? We are all in this world together.)

Pacific giant delphiniums looking good this year despite the mixed weather - one year I'll remember which plant has which colour flowers and introduce a few new ones (hopefully this pic will help me remember!)

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

A random plant that survived from bulbs I planted a couple of years ago, first time it's flowered! Guessing it's some kind of Lilly? If it ain't edible I ain't a clue ;)

Lovely, JayG - I've given up growing trying to grow them, only had a couple of good years since I moved here 13 years ago. No matter what slug pellets I use, I even bought Nematodes one year, they still just get decimated so no more for me :(

Yes mum, if the snails get there first it's curtains, at least for that year, and I've had a couple of close calls, but refuse to be outwitted by a mere mollusc!

Thought I'd take a picture of my David Austen 'Jubilee Celebration' in case it gets nobbled by a thunderstorm.

I can almost smell its wonderful scent from here!
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Another one of my orchids: Epilaeliocattleya 'Golden Sunburst'.  An intergeneric hybrid.
It has a fragrance as sunny as the color.
