Oh, then a short yellow lily! You are the same height as me.

I imagined KEF being tall and blonde, now I know she is tall! I thought of a tall yellow lily, except there is already a lily here but she is pink.

Nutcutlet I thought of as a hazel tree, she's a bit of a tree expert and you can put hazelnuts in your nutcutlets.

Fairy I'd thought of dierama, Angel's Fishing Rod, could be used by a fairy too.

Orchid Lady is Tracey, she sounds fun and younger than some so I thought Snapdragon, used to play with them when I was a child.

It's lovely, my OH gave it to me fairly recently.

Good answer Dove, well thought out, but I associate Verdun with agastaches and grasses!

This is a hard one. But Chicky likes flowers and has chicklets which sort of makes me think of lupins. But I don't know if she's tall or short!

Dove's are silvery and soft, so I was thinking Stachys Byzantina, but I don't know if she likes it. She's just made a pond and that's more for dry places.

There have been several threads on this subject already and so many different opinions. I'm afraid I find Monty rather dull, his voice lulls me into sleep and he isn't not as knowledgeable as I would like, but I imagine he's a nice person.

Morning all.

We stayed in Aghios Nikolaos about 39 years ago! Must be that, because it was before I had children. I think my maths isn't good either, Clari, because I thought I was 27. We went to Spinalonga too, on a boat which I was nearly sick in because I ate something the hotel shouldn't have served the night before. It was October and was over 80°F and most of the beaches were deserted. When we got home we spent over 3 hours sitting on the platform at Gatwick station, about 45°F in our summer clothes in the night. First train was at 6am and everywhere was shut.

But we did have a lovely time in Crete. We hired a mini Fiat, like a bubble car, and the mountain roads were amazing, dirt tracks, wonderful scenery. The sea was clear and warm.

2 sons, DILs and adorable granddaughter and new baby came for lunch today, French Mothers Day. Lovely to see them all. Sons gave me a dipladenia.

Glad you had a good birthday Punkdoc. I looked up the Black Swan in Helmsley, looks yummy, lovely food photos. I know Helmsley, have an old school friend and an uncle in N. Yorks. We are going there in July. Love the Helmsley walled garden too.

obelixx, I think I must have similar taste to you then.

So sorry about the hailstorm. Heartbreaking, it's happened here before. We had a huge storm on Wednesday too, but not hail, just rain to batter the roses, but someone in a local village died when the roof of her barn caved in and several thousand homes were without electricity in Dordogne.
