That's a dainty colour. I have recently bought a white one - it has come out a bright yellow with orange centre!!

Thanks Paul, yes, it’s a variety of cistus. I haven’t thought of the leaves having a scent! I will endeavour to sniff them out tomorrow! ☺️

Sounds a lovely colour, Ange! Are you happy with it or do you still wish it was a white one?

It may be the same one, Julia. I’m liking the colour too. There are lots of flowers on it this afternoon, must have been the lovely sunshine egging it on!

Thank you, Paul. I’m liking the creased paper tissue effect too!

LOL That's what I was thinking. It looks like something we made in Arts&Crafts at Summer Camp way back when.
