I spotted something tonight at dusk when I was putting the quail to bed. Hidden in the back of my border is a single dark brown stem, about 8 inches tall, with small, downward facing yellow flowers coming off ths tem, probably about a dozen tiny flowers. Tiny wee flowers that are like little daffs. No leaves at all. I will take a piccy tomorrow in daylight, but thought I would run the description by you first. Any clues so far??

Nary a one, but it does sound cute.

Putting the quail to bed....sorry but my first thought was do they all have matching PJ's ?

Of course Toni, and little bed hats to keep them toasty. Smile All I actually do is just check in them, then close the door to their outdoor run.

Here are some pics of the mystery plant. Sorry about the focus in a couple, but it is at the back of my flower bed, in the shade of a little cobnut tree. It stands about 8 or so inches and these flowers are tiny and downward facing. Any ideas you clever peeps?

I love the flowers. Their shape is very different and unique. I really want to know what they are. Sorry I couldn't identify them but I can't find anything close anywhere.

It's Epimedium and I shan't be a bit surprised if it's the "Sulphureum". The foliage is supposed to stay green in winter, then die down just in time for us to cut it off before the blooms show. The spring foliage is lovely coloured too. Very Happy I really like those perennials, but I don't like dividing them, since I'm not fond of hatchet jobs. Laughing

You clever, clever Droopy. Smile Now, of course, I have been and looking on the hinternet to check out the foliage, and I think I can place the garden from which I 'acquired' said Epimedium. blush blush. However, I have never seen it in flower in his garden, so either I have never worked there at this time of year, or else it isn't happy where it is and I should dig it all up and bring it home to my garden. Smile Thanks Droopy.
