Independence Day?

This result probably won't affect me, but I agree with the comments from KT53 and Shrinking Violet. Don't panic and wait for the first day's hulabalu to die down a bit. If Brexit, as it seems, forces the powers that be in the EU to start thinking that maybe they've been going about things the wrong way, so much the better.

Help Identify this plant please

It looks a lot like a platycodon to me, it will have blue or white ballon-like flowers.

Thanks Pat, I've got the Exotic Plants one, the pages are quite thick, so I think I'll have a go with water colours.

Don''t know what time it is in Aussie, but suspect you'll be getting up again soon, hope you slept well and that it's not too cold today.

might be ricinus

Could be, Nut. Ricinus leaves have 8-10 "points".

Wow, I've just found this thread, what a fabulous lot of creations, unbelievable how creative you all are! (clapping smiley) Am amazed at those of you doing those intricate things while watching TV, how do you keep an eye on both?!!!

I'm not very creative but have done some window painting, would take a photo but sadly most of them have faded from the sun, will have to replace them sometime.

Pat E, you once mentioned the Kew Gardens Colouring Book and I have ordered it from Amazon for something to pass the time next winter. I was wondering what you use to colour them with. Do you use water colour paints, colour pencils or what?

Purple climbing rose - where to buy

Rubi, I'm afraid that picture has been highly photoshopped! If you look at the left-hand side Amazon site below you will see that the colour is really pink. Besides, the seller who is probably in China, is offering seeds, which will probably never come to anything! See also the the bad reviews.
