Very floriferous, and I agree, it is surprising anything's bothered to flower - that Lilium nepalensis and Bletilla are stunning, specially with the striped leaves - not a plant I know, off to check it out now.

Good evening Brian! So wonderful colours again. I cannot believe that you do not have sun as you have much much nicer Achilleas then me.:)) And those lilies are wonderful.

Diane & Olive that is a bit of an illusion the height of the basket,had to look back to see how you had seen it ,my ref originally was to the way the Begonias had gone up instead of over, the basket is accessed from the balcony at the rear of the house but the garden drops away quite sharply as you noticed.
