........just to say.  Looking for summer scent by your front door?  I have heliotrope (Chatsworth) in several pots and the scent of vanilla and cherry from them is intoxicating

.....well, enjoy it Dove 

Talkback: Euphorbia and lime heather pot display

Yes.....euphorbia Polychroma   Carex carex.

This is a lovely variety.  Deciduous though but early spring through to now it forms a mound .....60 cm or more high....of acid yellow flowers.  Nice pale green foliage but, as with all euphorbias, watch out for the sap when cutting the faded flowers. Wonderful contrast next to berberis atro nana.  

Better In the ground.  Not really a pot plant, ESP with its toxic sap.

Morning KEF...hope you have good day. 

You got rain Dove!   Oh dear!    Looking brighter by the minute here.    Wish I could change it over for you so that I get rain instead.   No, seriously.  I mean that most sincerely  

I don't believe it.

Very humid.  Cloudyish. Dahlias growing fast every day and night now...the difference noticeable plus buds now appearing.  

Committed to taking a friend to a nursery this morn so that's an inconvenience   (bought ought something where would I put it?)
