    So very nice to see, Loggie. Do I spy some little marigold plantlets there in that last foto of yours?

    I am fond of marigolds. What a good place for them, Loggie.

    Got Cypripedium tibeticum in our Cypripedium patch, and I really like the strange shoe shape. My camera isn't co-operative when it comes to catching the very dark colour. The bloom is so dark red it's almost black. The photo shows it lighter than it is:

    Your flowers look wonderful @Logan, and I really like your lavender border.

    This one is blooming now. Terrible pest if let loose, so we've put it in plant jail where it can't go anywhere.

    Your Cosmea is superb and the Verbascum looks fresh and asks for attention in your garden, as does your Knautia macedonica.

    Droopy— Polygonatum looks stunning. Really attractive.

    Echium vulgare and Corncockle in our Fiveup meadow :)

    We collected the Echium seed from wild ones on the beach a few years back, they're bienials.
