I'm always in catch up mode these days, Lil!!!

I did think that bee looked a bit foreign ;) What a stunning blue.....I wonder if I could grow one of these....hmm...

I wish I could help more with the name, KS...
They're not good on labelling here! But, I did have one in Dundee...they creep up walls (or trellis), as well as the ground! :)

Could it be Thyrisfolius or something similar Karen? I didn't realise you actually lived in Dundee! I knew about your daughter of course, but didn't realise! OH is Dundee born and bred, whereas I have ONLY lived here for 24 years, 18 of them in Hyndford Place, West End.

Yes, KS...but only from looking it up!
Was born in Stirling, went to Art College in Dundee, had a pottery there, then was a teacher... lived round the corner, in Birchwood Place (at the back of the Spar!) at the top of your road...still have a friend in Hyndford Place!!
