You're lucky you avoided the frost this year Teresa, most of us suffered.  It certainly put an end to my developing pearlets  Not one survived

Snap LilyP 



Mine are in the bit of our garden that borders a public footpath ....they rarely get noticed   In fact it took my own family 6 months to spot they were there.  This chap, however, is a little more obvious, if you're looking in the right direction

Wow. Superb photos everyone thank you. I LOVE this thread


I follow the fantasy sculpture on Facebook. I was in touch with the charming artist when he first started trying to get a fairy. He was sooooo apologetic that he was too busy. Now I see his art being fully appreciated. Very 🀒 that you have them


See original post

 I do too LilyP ❀️

Well done Pdoc - what an achievement  


Lots of negativity around today - but I am off to bed smiling.  Don't ask me to articulate why, but it feels like we have turned a corner ...


Think I might have persuaded MrC that tomorrow might be a good time to see Sissinghurst in all its rosy glory
