Marion-can I move in with you? Fed up of the hail and sleet we have here today..
The photo thing is annoying isn't it? I've taken a couple but not tried to load them yet -will maybe try later.
..I do like the 'Stellata' magnolias best I think - lovely indeed...
yes Fairygirl very annoying although your posts, along with many others, usually cheer me up... I'm trying again now via Photobucket - which I detest actually, but see how this works...
Tulip clusiana 'Lady Jane'...
Ribes odoratum [Buffalo currant], I prefer this to forsythia.. the flowers have a sweet spicy scent and the foliage autumn colour...
That worked Salino! Can enlarge no prob!
Here's my pasque flowers-see if this works
Salino how do you get that Photobucket site-do you just google it-is it like Photobox?
I like Ribes sanguinium ....some people dont. Full of flower....got a good dark full floweriing clone.....and a sign of spring. Today the sun is shining with plenty of blue sky and the garden is full of flower everywhere. Scent from choisya, hyacinths, wallflowers, stocks, sarcoccoca, Daphne's etc add to the colour.
Cornwall is full of fields of daffodils, Camelias, rhododendrons, azaleas, magnolias, .....it's,alive with colour right now.
But......weather weather is forecast. Slump!
Marion- mine was just taken from laptop so it must be cos Salino has used that different site. I've just registered on it so maybe that's the best idea while this site has a prob with pix?
Round here everyone has the pink one and I've always hated it so it's subconsciously put me off flowering currant. I'm definitely going to get odoratum-thanks Salino!
Ideal for somewhere you pass every day....
Does anyone know which variety of daff this is?

Hurray! Salino how do you get that Photobucket site-do you just google it-is it like Photobox?
hi Fairygirl, sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner. I note you've just registered with them and see you are finding your way around with it, I just hate those advertisements that keep popping up. otherwise lovely images of your Pasque flowers, nice close ups..!! you're obviously a fast learner...
the Ribes will grow 8 foot by 6 foot and is very hardy... a native of the American plains..
the daffodil looks very familiar but of course there are thousands of them. I might have a guess later...
you might consider doing the same as we have, but it's a shame that we have to resort to this, isn't it?
I also have a Ribes sanguineum, one called 'Koja' which I find has larger racemes than the others, well, so it is said... seeing as you mentioned it...
No salino-my techy daughter just arrived home at the right time
I used to use photobox years ago so I messed about a bit myself!
I've inherited some daffs here and this one has a nice scent and wondered if anyone would recognise it-not too important really though! I'll have to move all the clumps so I've been cutting them for the house. They're very cheery on a dull day
I've got gravel on the alpine pan since I took that photo so they look prettier now- thanks!
Fairygirl I took a photo of Pulsatilla vulgaris at the Bristol Botanic garden on Thursday .
...now that's a better picture - lovely...
..handy to have a techie daughter Fairygirl.. we could all do with one of those.. either sex will do...
I know Salino - they're ok sometimes....
Aren't the pasque flowers just so pretty marion...and I'm not a fan of 'little frilly plants' - I prefer big bold and architectural -but I do like alpines and things like dianthus. I think it's the sheer perfection of them or something.
just found this old pic of alpine pan from old house. We were selling so it was cheap 'window dressing'!
Cycalmen removed and pasque lowers put in.
pic disappeared when i edited text. Ther's a real prob with the site re pix.
YEs, I have banned myself from editing.

...and there I was thinking you'd just had a tipple...
Hi everyone.....I am pleased I can upload photo's now from my IPad....a couple of blips allong the way but I am getting there. These are some of my orchids in flower again.....which means I must be doing something right. Photo looks a bit wonky....never mind........anyway it is nice to be able to see other people's flowers etc....sorry for interrupting.
