Thank you..They really are nice little flowers SL. This one is never happy in my little yard, so I am going to be giving it a bit of attention and a new home at a friends house where it should thrive.

Can you really bear to part with it, Pimms? It looks pretty happy in your photo . . . and if it's in a pot of ericaceous compost it should be fine. Seems to me you might miss it. :((

Lol..Sheila, I will take a cutting and I may try a different variety.

What a shame to lose it Pp ... have you tried testing your soil to see if it is that ?

Lovely!

Amy all my plants are in pots, I think my yard is just far too hot and sunny for it.

Lol..Have decided to keep it now.

Lol, Pimms, that's great. 3 cheers! I'm sure you're going to be very happy together. :))

Those flowers look like Lalique glass. So pretty, and such delicate colours.

That's right Gattina . . . and you don't really notice until someone takes a lovely close-up like this. :))

Nature beats art every time......

Pp , your pics just take the breath away .

But learning to paint makes us look more closely at nature . . .

Who needs to when we have Pimpernel's pictures to look at?

That's true. :))

Enough flattery....:)

Photographs are usually emotionless things....not so with paintings and drawings.

Dictionary definition of "flattery" is "insincere praise" . . . we are sincere in our appreciation of your photos Pimms! You have an artist's eye, and your close-ups encourage a closer look at our own plants. :))
