Yes you are right fidget, but it is a much prettier plant, and hopefully I could keep it alive in a cold greenhouse.

Really like the look of Isoplexis caneriensis, a half hardy foxglove relative. May need to buy that.

It's all subjective isn't it.

I really liked the symbolism of the oak tree in the modern slavery garden, representing the oak tree William Willberforce stood under, to first read the anti-slavery bill. All the oak saplings planted underneath, were actually planted by people released from slavery in Britain.

Pompous twaddle, possibly, but it made an impression on me.

It's a good job we all like different things.

There you go again Hosta, raising the tone.

I think that some people may be missing the concept behind the granite block garden.

The idea is, that following a nuclear holocaust all the plants will be gone, except for those behind the wall. These will eventually seed to start the world growing again.

That is modern art for you, you either love it, or hate it. I love this one.

Don't worry the thread is fine. People can criticise or praise, room for all, good thread.

I would swap a spring cabbage, for a dozen trips to Chelsea, so we would be ok. David

Hi all.

Lovely day out at Trentham yesterday, thanks for the tip fidget.

I have put some photos on one of the photo threads, can't remember which. Lots of fairies.

Thanks for all the lovely birthday wishes.

Monty - just saying......

I think a bit of ogling, by both sexes, is a sign of being alive.
