Hi LG. Let's hope you got it right and did well. I have seen that plant growing round here in municipal plantings - gets lifted or binned before winter - and one or two gardens and assumed it was a relative of phlomis russelliana cos of those whorls at the base of the flowers; Not something I would ever have thought of trying in Belgium but could be good here as long as I take it into the polytunnel for winter. The RHS says it won't stand being frozen.
FG - forgot to post photos of the medieval Halles which, it turns out, were built in the 1700s but in the old style with stone outer pillars and wooden pillars and beams inside. Fabulous. 16 stone pillars on the long sides.
Dogs have been walked and had a good long run about off lead so flolopped and snoring now. Spose I'd better think about some dinner....
