Oh Toto thought it made a change to the more common chameleon variety and the double flowers a bit more significant ..sorry you dont like it :- (

Why Toto?........its pretty

I like it too. I have the chameleon variety (in a pot) just stood at the edge of the tortoise watering hole. Sounds as if Toto has had a bad experience with the plant sometime :)

it is pretty.
wonder what happened to Toto regarding this plant lol

Sorry I didn't make myself more clear Bonkers. I didn't mean to say that I didn't like the plant. What I don't like about it is it's habit of spreading out of control. Once it gets a grip it is very difficult to keep it within bounds.

I have the Chamelon species, Its found its way into a wall basket and looks very attractive.

Oh Toto, I am disappointed, I had visions of you walking down the path and the plant grabbing you and there being a real tussle before you freed yourself and ran for help! I really must kerb my imagination :)

This is a real beauty, maybe I'll be lucky enough to find it here someday. Lucky for me our summers are too hot and dry for the type I have to be a problem, it just spreads enough to make a wonderful display.

Oh Gee..what a picture you paint ! Lol
Ours grows by the pond Flower and the only place for it to spread would be in the water or into the lawn ! Lol

You'll be able to mow it soon then Bonkers.

LOL Toto...not allowed to touch lawn for next couple of weeks as baby froglets are starting to come out of the pond !

Great to hear Bonkers. I wish everyone was like you in considering all the little creatures.

19 Jul, 2009

 

Yes Toto...sometimes "she who must be obeyed " gets it spot on though it grieves me to admit it !! Lol

19 Jul, 2009

 

Oh! Bonkers. Never admit it unless you are in all male company and up the pub.

OK..she hasnt seen this yet anyway and will probably miss it ! Though they dont miss much do they ?

19 Jul, 2009

 

Only the bits you want them to see!
