Reader reviews


I am at a loss to the fact that the yellow Aquilegia seems to have a pink vabascum type flower at the top of the page, or I have gone colour blind over night, not really useful at all good job I know what the flower should look like.


The flower in the picture is definitely a Lavatera or Malva.
