Delightful.

It is rather!

27 Jun, 2011

 

That might be my favourite colour combination?

27 Jun, 2011

 

I'll take a photo of the bud - it's like a Blue Whale (to my eyes anyway)!

27 Jun, 2011

 

Yes I would like to see that! Are we working on a scale of 1:1000000?

27 Jun, 2011

 

Not far off!

28 Jun, 2011

 

I shall look forward to the photo.

This one has such a freshness to it, it's lovely.

28 Jun, 2011

 

Well, they only really last a day, so I guess that they'll always be fresh!

28 Jun, 2011

 

True enough but it's the colour. It has the colour of an ocean wave!

28 Jun, 2011

 

How lovely!

28 Jun, 2011

 

Amazing close up!

28 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks Wagger and Michaella.
That's a pretty idyllic ocean wave Sticki!

Lovely colour:)

28 Jun, 2011

 

excellent !

28 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks chaps!

I like to dream meanie! The waves breaking on the Hebrides are as clean as this (not quite the same blue admittedly)
I saw a blue salvia in the GC today, beautiful but it said full sun so I left it in the GC

Crikey Sticki - just be impulsive!!

28 Jun, 2011

 

I've spent too much already! I only went for a birthday card but somehow managed to come out with a fuchsia - Devonshire dumpling (liked the name) 2 terracotta pots with 50% off - will possibly put herbs in them, one White leucanthemum and two rudbeckia prairie sun which are really stunning.

28 Jun, 2011

 

It's so easy done!
I'd like to do Rudbeckia, but ran out of space yonks ago!

28 Jun, 2011

 

Just got to find a space somehow! Thought you would like the colour.

28 Jun, 2011

 

But where!!!

28 Jun, 2011

 

Build a high rise flower bed?

28 Jun, 2011

 

Now you're being silly!!!!!!!
It's a thought though.......

I haven't seen this one before Meanie , it's stunning !

29 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks Amy!

29 Jun, 2011

 

I shall wait to see the hanging gardens of Oxfordshire!?

29 Jun, 2011

 

You could be there a while........

29 Jun, 2011

 

Hanging about in Oxford no doubt! Oh well I believe there are some very attractive plants in the botanical gardens - I can always wait in there!

29 Jun, 2011

 

I'm starting to get the shakes - it's almost three weeks since I was last in there!

29 Jun, 2011

 

Three weeks? That's two weeks and six days too many! You will have to sort that out ASAP! And don't forget your camera!

29 Jun, 2011

 

I can't see it happening for a couple of weeks.......

29 Jun, 2011

 

Oh dear! You will definitely be suffering from withdrawal! But heligan must have helped?

29 Jun, 2011

 

Heligan was good!

29 Jun, 2011

 

It was a really good surprise when I went - way beyond my expectations.
