Thanks Alex, I spent my bonus from work on it after I broke the last one (for the second time in a year) went for the same type again but there are a lot of things that are different.
Might have to try photographing it again Scottish, I really haven't got it right!

Lovely Strep. I found a nice one today in GC £9.99 though and with my reputation for killing houseplants I thought better of it....spent the money on outdoor shrubs instead! It was a lovely blue and cream one, really nice, but I would have killed it....:((

Beautiful Strep, I love them but have given up, they always die on me no matter how hard I try ( and I do ) :0((

i have seen the blue and cream one, karen, it reminds me of ice cream ~ i dont know why!!

this is the first one i have had val, i will let you know if i dont succeed!!

1 May, 2012

 

Oh I do hope you succeed, they are gorgeous.

pretty things arent they, i really like falling stars so if i get on ok with this one, i might be tempted to get falling stars too!!??

1 May, 2012

 

that's a beauty Sticki, lovely capture to, i find purple is a bit awkward at times...

1 May, 2012

 

think i better keep trying!!
on the other hand if i bought falling stars the photo should be a much truer colour!!!??? is that a good enough excuse?

1 May, 2012

 

sounds good to me :-)

2 May, 2012

 

Gorgeous colour.

this is showing the lower petals as more of a violet colour when in fact they are nearer a deep purple ~ sorry to disappoint you gee

I know, that we are difficult characters :)
