..I think one thing America is good at, is carving roads into mountainsides so we can drive up them.... if Ben Nevis was over there, I'm sure we could just drive up it by now...

here are some photos of photos, first taken about 15 years ago , so excuse the quality....

first one, somewhere on the Montana/Wyoming border... high above the tree line


from top of Scott's Bluff...overlooking the North Platte River valley...a quite exciting drive to the top...through all sorts of fascinating geological shapes...


..view from the other side... there's a town down there somewhere..


..Bison, in the Yellowstone National Park with Campanula rotundifolia...

Rose Cutting Successful - now what??

..should be the same colour as the original plant I would have thought...perhaps you did get them muddled'm sure it will be very nice whatever...

I put my rose 'Bengal Crimson' back in the ground as it had recovered and there are lots of flowrers buds... so all is well there...  perhaps you could post a photo sometime of this rose of yours...?

Daphne 'Eternal Fragrance'... this is it's 2nd flush this year...


Hebe 'Blue Star' - a nice little Hebe with blue-ish foliage...


Eugenia foliage - similar to Photinia..but this is a kind of Aug-Dec.


Lavatera 'Mary Hope'... a shorter form of 'Barnsley'.. bit bedraggled from the rain...


Clematis viticella's Minuet and Etoile Violette...intermingled...




Posted: 28/06/2014 at 20:13 I said earlier...but I'm not going to labour the point further as it seems some people just don't want to acknowledge it... there is no need to change your settings to 'basic editor' if you are using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, but are prepared to download and install Adblock Plus.... which is simple and gives you a quick fix.... full service will be resumed straight away.... otherwise, if you change your settings, it will be text service only and you will have to wait for the admin to fix it...

..up to the user what you do...
