25 Jul, 2012

 

What are you feeding it on !!!!

25 Jul, 2012

 

Wow thats so pretty :)

25 Jul, 2012

 

Maybe just she's just talking to it? lol

25 Jul, 2012

 

Lol,Cinders..to be honest,it hasn't had a lot of liquid food,as it's been too wet to water it..but it was all good compost and I put some slow release plant tablets in..so only the best for 'Ballet Girl' !..all this rain has done wonders,really..:o)

25 Jul, 2012

 

Well it has certainly done well hasn't it.

25 Jul, 2012

 

Thanks,Pixi..it is,and yes,Kasy..I have been known to talk to my plants :o)

25 Jul, 2012

 

It has,Cinders..and you know how long I have been waiting for it to flower..well worth the wait :o)

25 Jul, 2012

 

She is a beauty B. Great photo.

25 Jul, 2012

 

:) I do the same:) and they seem to like it, lol

25 Jul, 2012

 

She is very aptly named. It looks just like a frilly tutu. Beautiful Jx

25 Jul, 2012

 

Thanks G.mage...almost a crick in the neck ,taking it! Lol.
..........
It's more like a threat,Kasy,than a conversation ! :o)
..............
thanks Jane..I agree ,she couldn't have a better name :o)

25 Jul, 2012

 

Very nice...looks a bit like 'Swingtime'?....

25 Jul, 2012

 

Gorgeous Bloomer, I thought it was Swingtime but I think that one is smaller. I bet you do a spot of ballet dancing in the privacy of your garden to get it going :o)))))

26 Jul, 2012

 

Thanks Moti and N3..it is a bit similar to Swingtime,which I had last year..but only in colour really..a much bigger flower,and lovely markings on the white part..I much prefer this one..and as regards Ballet dancing in the garden..think 'dying swan' ..Lol :o)

26 Jul, 2012

 

Are you saying the same things I do? 'If you don't flower in few weeks time I'll get rid of you'? lol

26 Jul, 2012

 

Almost,Kasy..but not as politely as you..same meaning though ! Lol.

26 Jul, 2012

 

Beautiful

26 Jul, 2012

 

Know what you mean B. Lol. I imagine you on your knees and then getting stuck!!!! That is what would happen to me!!

26 Jul, 2012

 

Gorgeous and if ever there was a name that suited a specific plant - this is it!!

26 Jul, 2012
