Does it set seeds?

I think it may! Isn't it a beauty! There's a better pic on my special plants blog i did this morning, as I was up rather early!!

Going there now.......

Meanie, you mean really?! When, what time!! I need to buy a plant as a gift but really I should be trying on outfits for Royal Ascot!!!

This really is unusual Lou. Surely you can take cuttings?
Will wave to you on tv love, best of luck at Ascot!

I will be the one in the silly hat!

You wont be alone then (big grin!) What days you there? Do you have runners every day?

14 Jun, 2011

 

Sadly no runners at all. All our mates are going today:(
We are only going because the chairman is desperate to recover old ascot goers who don't like the changes at all!

me too. And chasing after my 6'4" tall hubby on high heels is not fun and if I don't keep up I loose him....think I'll wear me flats!

Lol! Grrr men! If you were a frisky 2yo he wouldnt let you out of his sight! Hmmm maybe...

I have jumped up and down waving my arms trying to gain his attention at the races, doesn't work!

Is this the one that smells of Blackcurrants when you crush the leaves Lulu ?

14 Jun, 2011

 

Just sounds better and better if that's the case!

14 Jun, 2011

 

I didn't dare crush the leaves in case I got told off! It was such a beautiful and unusual plant though.
Meanie, sorry, I have lost the plot here, what sound better...!!? When you do go (if you haven't already) let me know....unless you are in Cornwall and go on the way back tomorrow as you said you might!

If it smells of Blackcurrant it's near perfect Lulu!
Going down Monday, so we may pop in on the way back.......

It's jolly nice even if it doesn't smell of blackcurrant, although that would be a bonus!
Let me know when you pop in and we can fight for the foxglove!
