Honesty self seed a lot here, they can grow quite big but easy to identify if there's too many of them. Once you have forget me nots, they will always grow. I like Jacobs ladder, lovely foilage and the bees like them too, good self seeders

I love seeing people's creative work Pat, I took up drawing a few years ago and it's so relaxing and you get to improve the more you do

I think your water colours are fab Busy Lizzie, I've only had a go once this with this medium and then promptly gave up,so difficult but I do love the subtle shades that can be achieved.

Your envelope design is very pretty Pat, so much inspiration to be found in nature. Wowee Jessum on the cake design, you nailed the stained glass effect, first thing I thought when I saw the Iris one.

That's a lovely crochet rug Lyn, love the design and colours. Did this drawing last weekend, sowed my cosmos in March and they only just started to flower a couple of weeks ago

I've had great trouble getting them to germinate in the past, in the end I just left them outside and they did come up eventually. They are really easy to take cuttings from so I do that instead
