But over the years the colours have evolved in to stunning beauties like this one Black Pearl.

Its beautiful Kath, I`ve had one for years that when in flower is a lovely red, trouble is it has babies but refuses to flower again even though I religiously follow all the instructions, L`m hoping to get some flowers from the babies in the future.........
I`ll have to try hinting as well...

It certainly is and I just love this word.

I love the word "smirr". Another Scottish one for that fine mist that coats everything in wetness. It describes what it means so well.
