  2. Hello there, I've come via lots of gardeners' blogs to you!! Hope you don't mind. I'm a gardener too, I can't work out where you are but I'm in County Clare, Ireland and it's very soggy and boggy here!! Do pop over if you have a chance. That's a lovely plant you've photographed.

  6. What an unusual plant. Does the yellow flower mean that one plant gets multiple colored blooms?
