Shame about the Delphs, but these are lovely. Never had this in my garden.

I really love this, and I love the white form too. Your pics are lovely Bloomer, really cheering me up!

It was a shame,Shirley,but these are easier to look after..no slugs or snails or staking :o) Bought from Lidl years ago..one in a packet for 50p Lol..I'm too fastidious at cutting the dead seed heads off,so I'm going to relax my tidy habit this year.so I can have more there..I still miss some,hence quite a few in different borders..if you like,I'll save you some :o)..before the secateurs get there first !

Thank you Karen,glad they are cheering you up..have you had another cold and wet day? sorry,but it's been really warm and sunny again here,but more towards humid really.. I had the white one too,but it didn't survive..they seem to last such a long time too,which is always a bonus :o)

I've always liked these Sandra, and they're usually quite hardy aren't they.

Love them so pretty

Day started off warm and sunny...then within a couple of hours it was cold and drizzly...and now the sun has returned in time for bed. Story of our 'summer'.

Very pretty indeed, nearly bought one today but wasn't sure where to plant it. Yours looks lovely, I bet you are very pleased with it.

Sandra, yes please, would love some. :o)

They are a good all rounder,Julia,and very hardy..I find them growing in several places from seed heads I've missed taking off :o)

It was a lovely day here,till we were just setting off to a Birthday party,last night..! Thunder,lightening and torrential rain,all the way there..it eased off as we were getting out of the car..how's that for good timing ? Plants look great this morning,after a good soaking,and no damage :o)It's lovely again ,so we have been lucky..I hope it's a better day for you too..

You nearly bought one,Chris ? how very restrained of you ! Lol ..I'm sure you could have tucked one in somewhere :o)

23 Aug, 2015

 

Yuo are welcome,Shirley..:o)

23 Aug, 2015

One of my favourites .... Tick all the boxes - hardy, easy, flower for ages, seed around but easily removed, vibrant, lovely ☺

Gosh you're very enthusiastic Dawnsaunt:-) I love these too, found a lot in between paving, another present from the birds:-)

I know Born. Rubbish broadband here. Haha

28 Aug, 2015

 

Broadband OK here DA, but my tablet substitutes words for me sometimes which makes me look a bit odd, I have to check everything before touching send:-)

29 Aug, 2015

 

Oh dear Born, that could be tricky. I wonder if you can turn the predictive text off, like on mobile phones?

30 Aug, 2015

 

No idea, I'm a technophobe and my little mobile phone is just that ... a phone and to text I have to press three times for 'c' etc ... takes all day lol:-)))

30 Aug, 2015

 

Haha. I had a phone like that too.

I'm scared of the others:-)
