WinterS, would love some pics of your flower paintings. My icon to the left is a detail from one of mine.

Nut, I think that what I have is Nectaroscordum Siculum, I guess it must be an allium?

I'd rather paint a picture of them I don't think the wintersong pic is an allium for some reason, but I may be wrong

Wonderful, wonderful WinterS. What is the penultimate photo? I have some and have lost the label, but they have multiplied a lot over the last winter

HappyM, I just stick them in the ground and they seem to know what they are doing If they aren't growing well I give them a little talking to, e.g. 'Come on, you can do better than that!'

Finally some sun, bought a campanula and coreopsis this morning to fill some gaps left by the for-get-me-nots. Planting out the perrenial foxgloves and some sunflower seedlings that I grew. Will sprinkle white annual Lavatera seeds also, they are such a fresh white later in the summer. I want a very lime green Heuchera also, but didn't see one.

Making cake later to take to compost event us 'compost masters' are doing tomorrow.
