Love the arrangement in the patio picture, Steve. Cant see the plant pot flowers or leaves very well but could it be marguerite or osteospermum? some clearer pics just of that and someone will let you know straight away!

Tulip and heuchara, quite like the combo, sun too bright for my camera skills.

Again a bit dark, these are little red riding hood, love the leaves.

The picture, as always, doesn't do them justice.

Totally agree potty.
I'm e noting pics of tulips even more than daffodils, and less than those to come. Happy times.

Nearly ready for breakfast now chicky. Then we will go and get my mum and visit the farm at sons request. There's also a fishing lake, ducks and an old but still used mill nearby, just depends what mums legs are up to today.

Sounds a great plan Verdun, pity we Provo my won't see before and after pics knowing you, we'll just use our imaginations instead.
Never mind man shed Clari , my mrs g lovely girly gorgeous garden arches arrive on friday, whoo whoo. Hope OH enjoys his shed and lets you have some peace, he might just not notice an extra GH arriving while he's in the shed!
Glad you had a good day dove.
BL what a lovely pic, captures a wonderful moment, family and blubell combination.
Panda, sounds like a good day at work, hope your smiles up to it.
woody, I've got hundreds if self seeded alliums (well that's what I thi k they are!). Left them alone until last week when really needed to dig bed over, so potted them up, what should I expect them to do? Flower or not while next year? Over winter?
Oh btw morning all! Must get out of bed...

Oooh yes love the ballads too.
Well done Mikey lots done and a coldframe
Got a little more time to type just now so will explain work thingy. Work 2 days atm, need 3 days to buy plants n stuff although OH very good to me. Went to see old colleague who sets people on. She wants me, I really want job with her. She can only offer me one of the days I already work but for less hours/money. Tried all sorts of juggling on both sides but we just cant make it happen. Both of us miffed. She'll have to advertise it now. Suppose I'll be sending 'cold call' letters/cv out now.

Plant ID please

Thanks Bob, at least it's getting some moisture from next door. Might just solve a problem area, despite not being a plant of choice, if the garden's chosen it so be it, I'll wait to see what happens.

Any experience of Cerinthe major 'Purpurascens'

These are my two sown from seed at the wrong time (last augustI think), left in cold GH and grew quickly. also had some indoors but couldn't give them enough water and lost them! These are still a bit leggy. 

Cerinthe kiwi blue
