They're wonderful, you bung them in and they just get on with it...

I thought it'd be kinda helpful and fun for people to plonk down their fav flower of the day/season/hour.. Very Happy

Fab idea, I'm a landscape designer who doesn't really like flowers...

however, I do like some inflorescence



Especially the inflorescence of Heuchera sanguinea..



I am rather sadly addicted to Heuchras, well foliage plants in general, I think they have more to offer..

OOooooooo I like that, Badger, I love 'em, I've got a lime green one whose name escapes me.... this is going well... Laughing I'll edit the title so we can have it going monthly, that way if people need an idea for a particular month when they've got nowt flowering they can have a browse and a thunk... Very Happy

Right I will go get my camera! Very Happy
