..thank you, we're getting there...

yes this is a lovely plant isn't it..? although the usual Brunnera is just as nice too...

I think I prefer these to forget me nots which seed all over the place, lovely as they are though...

Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost'...

I like this one - Lonicera 'Red Gables' but there are many others.  This flowers from midsummer onwards... it has scent in the evenings mostly... less during the day...

[can't post photo, sorry]...oh, here we go....

You could upload pictures to an external site for example google picasa

here is an album i made earlier

not great photo's but its easy to share. I usually link images from picasa  as it is fairly reliable about uploading.


I've got picasa too but didn't know you could link to it...  you've got lots of seedlings coming on there... keep you busy..

Clitoria Ternatea

..well, I've not heard of it before, don't know about anyone else, but it's an interesting plant isn't it? curiously named, - appropriate I suppose when you see what it looks like...

I wish you all success with it, and congratulations for getting the seeds to germinate, very exciting..!  I don't think one could grow this out of doors except in summer, like a Bougainvillea perhaps...

^I like a lot of those already mentioned.  I'm not sure if this one is purple, dark pink, maroon, or red, it seems to vary.. starting off towards the red end I think...

'Mme Julia Correvon'.. a viticella...

^I'm surprised that Alpina forms are not hardy for some.  This is 'Frances Rivis' which I like very much..

..this is a close up of Clematis texensis 'Princess Diana', it's quite floriforous when you get it going, which can be difficult I have found...

^..oh that's nice.  I like those arches. I used to have several of those which I got from Agriframes. Not cheap but a good range.   An interesting plot by looks of things...
