I planted several of these last year and now they are flowering i can't  remember what they are, not sure if i grew them from seed or if they were plugs.

They are between 5 - 6 ft tall  the flowers are pink and fade to white, and they have an amazing perfume. Can anyone advise what they are please.

It's been manic in my back garden today, our blue tits have finaly fledged they have been competing at the bird feeders with 2 or 3 pairs of great tits also feeding their young. Birds everywere ! we can here all the young ones in the trees at the back of our house. It's been great watching them all.

My daughter has creeping jenny in a large black pot in her back yard

it looks great in contrast to the black pot, i have just put some summer bedding in with it lilac trailing geraniums and some cosmos.

In my mum's yard the bedding geraniums  are still in from last year ! they have lots of flowers on i can't belive  they survived the wiinter. I always intend to over winter geraniums but somehow never get round to it. Will have to try harder this year i might also try and save the seeds of bacoppa,

I'm in north Manchester.

Only just ordered the seeds think i should have started them earlier.

How big are yours ? what happened to yours last year did you grow them outside ?
