It does look like that one, Muddle-Up. It certainly was impudent, and stood up against the thrushes that have taken my garden over!

Brazil, Obelixx. I know it's desperation, but I don't know any bird watching forum here (or anywhere!) and I'd like to know which bird this is I have never seen. There are many European birds in my town (turtledoves, wrens, sparrows), so maybe...

I know the picture is c*y, but is this a kind of mockingbird? It was feeding on fruit in my garden. Thank you.

I suspected so, dovefromabove. Recently bought a packet of Avalune lupin seeds, I'll see if they behave differently! Anyway, lupin plants are not common where I live, so I will just try to use more selective seed....

My lupin flowered beautifully and uninterruptedly for 4 months (don't even know how many flower stalks there were!). It was grown from cheap local seed, and as you can see the plant was very healthy. Anyway, the blooms were a very faded blue instead of the more intense colour I was expecting. I may have added lime to the soil where it grew, but that must have been a long time ago, and even if I did, the plant would have suffered, wouldn't it? Another lupin flowered close to him, and the colour was also faded (this time it was pink). Spring was not warm here, and it didn't rain much. Does anybody have an idea why the flowers were so faded? Thank you.

Houseplant ID help needed please

Those are Kalandiva cultivars, a bit fussier to grow than regular Kalanchoe.
