That is the only picture I can find which looks anything like my plant, now renamed L. acuminata. Thanks.

They sometimes sit for long enough to get a really decent photo.




Fascinating discovery

Here is the Armeria formosa seed head.

 I have removed a few heads and split up the germinated seedlings from one of them.They had reasonable roots. The other I planted untouched to see what happens. Mind if they grow, there is the problem of what to do with the plants. I can probably sell a few but not that many and I hate throwing things away.

Wandering about the estate this morning (before the promised gales and rain) I was looking at one of the rock gardens and found that the seed heads on two different types of Armeria looked to be green. When I examined them, I discovered that the seeds had germinated on the seed head itself. Cannot remember ever seeing that before. Should take a picture I suppose, but it is too wet and windy now.

Sorry, never looked at your time stamp. Our electricity went off and on and off and on and finally off from about 11 am till 4.30 pm. Luckily we did manage to get Dinner while it was still on.

Takes a long time to look through the thousands of images I have taken. Suppose I should really have put names to the plants, then at least Search would be usable.

That is probably Lonicera caprifolia rather than the one we are looking for. Thanks for looking.

Delay in answering caused by a 6 hour power outage.

Just been through the photos from this year and last and not found an image. I know I took some of the bees on it, but when??

Will keep looking.
