Hi 3d... wow .. a lovely display of plants in your garden. Could you tell me more about the first pic. please.

Thank you Meadowland yes I prefer them in buds especially tulips , the dark purple one is a Tulip Tree, not Susan, I did have the name on here before a long time ago , now I ve lost the label.

Yes of course Terratoonie, its a dwarf Rhododendron, called Snipe and thank you glad you enjoyed the display of plants. I have another one not yet in flower very tiny leaves on that one its Artic Blue.

Thank you Seaburngirl for looking so pleased you enjoyed my garden.

Thank you Oliveoil.

Thank you Steragram I thought it was a Tortoiseshell the little butterfly and the other a Peacock.

Thank you Scottish yes I love my colour it cheers me up :)) yes I love to see the butterflies, as I live next to a grave yard full of nettles which some come into my garden from the side and a nature reserve at the rear I do get an assortment.

Thank you all for the like too. :o))
