Thanks for sharing photos Chicky, happy Marion, Busy-Lizzie, Bob TheGardener, Lavender lady and Marinelilium!

Inspiring stuff for us sun-starved folk!

I'm trying to keep up with this thread and enjoying it immensely.

I laughed at BBen's comment and want to see plenty more gargoyles if anyone has them. thats something I would love to invest in, although I'd rather sculpt my own, it's just difficult getting hold of blocks of stone or wood.

Also a big welcome to Herby Lou, happy marion's advise is spot on

Fraid not Nut...its a good old common allium although I can't remember the variety. It gets very leafy early spring and yellow star shaped flowers

 The bulbs smell of onion and its very vigorous!


Sorry for late reply...I worked a very early shift today and just didn't have the energy to think much so I slapped these up instead!

Post dinner, I'm a little more compos mentis  so, yes, they are very arty.

I also cheated, since these are from previous garden is mostly still catching up and as stated, I didn't have the energy to take photos which mostly means getting down on all fours and into peculiar angles!

I paint in oils, so these are my stock of flower forms and light that I use in my paintings  Imagine large versions of these hanging on your walls and there you go...not just a pretty face.

Oh go on then, one more just because we can...
