Can you remember which plants you'd like from me Dawn.
There was Mianthemum stellate for certain and that is lifted and in a pot. Did you want some Ophaloides verna [white flowers] Lamium 'Yellow archangel', Ajuga reptans [pink flowers] possibly var 'Rosea'. it didn't even have a label when I bought it. I have plenty of G phaeum 'Sambour' a maroon flower.

Was there anything else?

It's so lovely to see so much colour in your garden, Dawn! those Cyclamen also look very happy & will give you a lot of colour!

We have had an incredibly wet & mild winter here but yesterday & today, especially, we have had a lot of frost. The ground around here was white with frost this morning - not seen hardly any of that this "winter"?

I have lots of Pansies & a few Violas flowering on the balcony as well as the all the 9 Marguerite plants that flowered the whole summer in small troughs on the balcony railings! They haven't missed a day's flowering in at least 9 months now! Neither do they seem to have been harmed by the last couple of nights of frost! :)

With this mild weather I have quite a few flowers on the Pansies & Violas. I uploaded some photos of them to my photos page if you want to have a look.
