They are all lovely in spite of the weather , aren't they, Surrie ?
I especially like the petunia ( one of my favorite annuals ) , how unusual it is .
The Eucomis Vandermerwei sounds like something out of Harry Potter !

I love the little hoverfly S/lad . are the Impatients your own cuttings ,clever boy ! I have a row of Blueberry bushes loaded with blossom , I'm hoping for a good yield this year , blueberries are good for the eyesight ....I didn't know about the Camelia compost thanks for that :o)
