I'm going to go through my label box again, it's on the tip of my tongue but....how annoying...lol...

Nice colours there. What is it in left bottom corner, Crissue: Is it sort of Veronica spicata?

Spot on Kat...:o)))) I've got a Pink, but I fancied a blue to go with it....

I knew I should have remembered, Liatris is the only Perennial that opens from the top down, I just couldn't remember the type, but found it in my box of tricks...phew...Further over to the left there is another tall stem packed with buds, when open they look like my moptop canary's head...lol...

Lol. By the way, how is moptop canary, our friend?

He's good kat, enjoying his new cage, and flys about now..:o)))) I love to see them happy...I've had to split Honey and Nutella, Honey became very territorial, and kept attacking Nutella, I found her trembling with fright, so we have the original cage, so I made her comfortable in there, they can see each other, but no more problems...shame that...

Lovely plant

That´s really strange, as guinea-pigs are usually very social and are happy together. Male guinea-pigs attack other males, when they are in one cage, but I have never seen two females attacking each other. That is really strange.

Thanks Carol.. x

Kat it surprised me too...Honey chews all around the front of her house, marking all her territory..with her teeth marks...maybe she thought it time Nutella left home lol...

Hmm. Do not know. This is human thinking. But animal mothers do that sometimes, if the kids still want to suck and they already have teeth. It is painful, so "mothers" are trying to avoid it.

Haven't noticed her trying to suckle, she just stopped allowing her in the house, pushed her away from the food bowl etc...but she's happy now, and gets really excited when I go to see her, (baby) skips all over...funny little thing...hard to believe she's nearly three months old...

Sorry, to suckle...lol...my English must sometimes lead to a very funny reading :))

Please, upgrade her photo sometimes :))

Me too Amy, it's bubbly, and stands out, without being overstated...

I haven't seen this one before that I can remember. I like the look of it and will try to find some.

Let me know Hb, I don't know whether they can grow from seed, or by division, I'll have to look it up...
