One of my birthday presents was Kalanchoe "Bronze Sculpture" which is commonly known as the Paddle plant but this one has bronze colored tips to the succulent flapjack like leaves. It is a beauty and well named. I shall bring it into the conservatory when the frost comes - all six pots of it since it had to come out of its pot and be divided as soon as I saw it. Not only is it a new wonder to me it looks like a best seller for plant sales for charity. Incidentally it has yellow flowers in the spring so just right for my Golden jubilee year.

What a lovely little plant, you can be sure that half the country will be growing them next year, including me. I love so many plants it would be hard to pick out one but the Rose called Rachel is delicious perfume wonderful and looks like a ballerina frilly dress, no good for bee's but delightful all the same but my lavender more than makes up for it, Bee's buzzing round it all day long.
