    Lewisias still flowering today in two of the troughs. More in other troughs. I think the mild autumn has fooled them. :) :)IMG_3225.JPGIMG_3226.JPGIMG_3227.JPGIMG_3228.JPGIMG_3230.JPGIMG_3225.JPGIMG_3226.JPGIMG_3227.JPGIMG_3228.JPGIMG_3230.JPGIMG_3231.JPG

      Mini Rhododendron is "Snipe" 1½ inches tall. You could say it's flowering its socks off but it's too short to have any socks. :)

        Some pics are of troughs just planted up a week or so ago so you'll need magnifying glasses to see the plants. They're "Before" pics. :) :)

          Sorry, I can't tell you the names of each one as I'm a bit
          of a newb.

            2017-04-13 20.15.18.jpg Say "Hello" to Sooty. I'm afraid I didn't treat Sooty too well as I stuck him into a pile of chippings instead of compost but Sooty is nothing if not a resilient chappie. :) :)

              The Mini-Rhododendrons starting to flower in one of the troughs. Ptarmigan in the middle, a stunning white, has gone over. It jumped the race gun. :)

                  Those Muscari look a little different to the norm or is it a trick of the camera?

                  No idea. First time I've ever planted them. What's "different" about them?
