Ha, SNAP!! I've got this one and I was just going to post a photo of it! It's unusual, isn't it! :-)

6 May, 2009

 

Thanks Eileen ...Well come the day I have a plant you dont Spritz ... I m scouring the country to find the rarest but they always seem to appear in your lovely garden .. thats the only problem up here by the time our plants in flower everyone else been posting pics of them for weeks ..sob.

6 May, 2009

 

That's gorgeous BB

7 May, 2009

 

I didn't get it done last night - maybe this evening now.

Anyway, you have to think that what you see in the soft south, you will get oop north - and it MUST be a hardy sturdy one! LOL.

Mum treated me to Aquilegia "Dragonfly" today Spritz......looking forward to seeing it open....hoping it's not blue...but I've a feeling it may be....!

7 May, 2009

 

Thanks Deida - aye Spritz must be like the coprosma and the lavetera that happily survived perhaps the blanket of snow helped ?

What makes you think you have a blue one Janey ?

7 May, 2009

 

It is beautiful BB - so early for 'up north'. Mine are still in bud :(

7 May, 2009

 

Wont be long Dawn !

7 May, 2009

 

I know :) Get used to being behind everyone else now, lol.

7 May, 2009

 

I can't see why you should be, Dawn. You aren't up in the cold north, are you? Is your garden very exposed?

7 May, 2009

 

Hi Spritz. We live right in the middle of the country but we live in a low lying frost pocket. You should see the mist lying around some mornings over the brook and pond. My mum lives about 1 mile away in the next village on high ground and her garden is about 2 weeks in front of mine.

7 May, 2009

 

Oh, that explains a lot. Oh well, can't be long until they open, can it? Patience, patience. :-)

7 May, 2009

 

I know, I know. You have the stream too dont you Spritz - does that mean you are on low land.

7 May, 2009

 

Negative thinking BB...Lol......I would like adifferent colour one...but then Dragonflies are blue!!

8 May, 2009

 

Errr- yes, but it's different as we are only a mile from the coast and we can see the Quantock Hills, so our weather is strange. It can be raining on the hills, but dry here, a sea mist here, sunny on the hills. We don't often get snow - that lands on the higher ground as well - (thank goodness!)

8 May, 2009

 

This one is very lovely Bonkers . Never seen this one before, and it's a real winner !

9 May, 2009

 

I see Spritz - you never really know what to expect then :)

9 May, 2009

 

Well heres hoping Janey ...they re all pretty .

Thanks Flower , I ll save a few seeds for you the ones you sent have germinated real well and hope my garden begins to look half as good as yours ..I still have some really wild areas that need sorting.

9 May, 2009

 

Wild? Wild? Is it dangerous territory, BB?

Dawn, you are spot on. We have our own micro-climate here.

9 May, 2009

 

Not exactly Spritz...just massively overgrown andin need of some semblance of planting.! Very shady area so will have to plant lots of hostas etc.At moment totally overgrown with ivy ! Oh well..here goes !

9 May, 2009

 

You are soooo lucky Spritz. My Crataegus is still in bud and I remember seeing the picture of yours some 3 weeks ago in flower.

Is this one of the new white Aquilegias you talked about Bb? She's lovely :-)

10 May, 2009

 

Think so Sid in as much as new to me , havent seen this variety before here but of course someone could have been growing it for years ...difficult with Aquilegias as many are hybrids and dont come true to type from seed .

10 May, 2009

 

Thats a beautiful Aquilegia!

11 May, 2009

 

Saving some seeds for Jacque, Sid,so will send some to you if you like !
