There is a white version, but the Nursery had run out.

You're welcome, Suey! :-)

Doh.... Sorry, of course I do. I'm having more and more of these Homer moments at the minute. Can I blame the tablets? :~))

very pretty colour !

I think it'll be lovely under the shrubs...I'll have to snip bits off them so I can see it and the other plants I've found, though!

Beautiful.

Thanks, Toto! I was awful - I bought three new geraniums, and regretted not buying a fourth! One isn't in flower, the other - the photo is rubbish, so I'll have to take another.

My excuse? I need plants to go where the comfrey was!

Oh I just love that! You can't believe it's a real flower...look at those markings! I think these geraniums are the way to go for me...they are so pretty & all different...I might try some others next year. You've inspired me Spritz!! How good is that?!

I am delighted that 'geraniomania' is so catching a disease, Fluff! :-))))))

Hmmmm, you know what I'm thinking now don't you? :~))))))))))

What a lovely pattern on the petals lovely colours too.

I didn't know geraniums could be so diverse! It is very pretty.

Think this is the one for our shady areas Spritz..its lovely!

Don't forget there is a white one, too, Bb - if you can track it down. I thought I'd try the RHS Plantfinder and see if there's a Nursery that stocks it. This one is a light enough colour to 'shine' in the shade, though.

Will be checking it out too Spritz..thanks for your help.Have a really "difficult" area beneath a huge sycamore tree in the churchyard next door.Trying to fill it with perennials that love shade,but need a bit of variety! There is only so much interest in hostas!

You could always plant Comfrey, Bb! LOL.

I just thought I'd let you know I was back !
I've had no internet for almost 24 hours, started sweating, shaking and hallucinating. Lol :~))

3 Aug, 2009

 

Oh, I know what that feels like! Welcome back. :-)

3 Aug, 2009

 

Thank you, Oh yes, Guess what turned up in the post today ? ? ?
I bet Henry isn't very pleased with me?
I'd not put the address right :~((

3 Aug, 2009

 

Ooops!!! I did wonder if you'd posted it...amazed that it got back to you, though!

3 Aug, 2009

 

I always put a return address on parcels, just in case. Had to pay extra though :~((

3 Aug, 2009

 

Oh dear - please don't me feel guilty, Ian. :-(

That was very wise, though!

3 Aug, 2009

 

Why should you feel guilty? It was my co.... mistake, no one elses Lol

3 Aug, 2009

 

Very nice indeed. This one is going on my shopping list for sure lol
