What a beautiful blend Sandra, it looks stunning and hopefully will remain like this for a while. The dicentra just completes the whole look - how clever are you?!

Thank you Chris,and not clever at all,just sheer good luck !: I must say though,the Dicentra has done much better in that shady border..:o)

Really lovely Bloomer. I have one in Pierris in a pot and two in the flowerbeds and the bees love the little flowers. The Camelia is beautiful.

Thank you Linda..I had forgotten that this one was a layered one from the parent plant..which I still have..A shame the Camellia is on the turn now,but yes,It's been good this year...

According to the weather people it's going to be very cold for a few days.

24 Apr, 2017

 

That should just about finish the Camellia off then..it's been a lovely day,but a chilly wind...lets see what tomorrow brings !
