Portulaca  grandiflora have leaves like that, quite fleshy. When it flowers it will help confirm.

Green with envy here, Punkdoc.

I'd love to see beluga whales in their native habitat. The only ones I've seen were penned up at seaworld.

Snap. I started with a packet from Sarah Raven,  I overwinter some which flower early. I save seed from one year to the next. The seedlings flower later in the season.

Just collect the large seeds when they turn brown. Sow in March in greenhouse.

Can we have picture updates of the station, Gardengirl.?

Punkdoc, have a lovely time. look out for polar bears.  I hope no medical skills will be required, but I am sure that if they are, you are more than up to the job. Just believe. Have a good time.
