I had Friday off last week so nice long weekend, brilliant weather so had time to sunbathe on Saturday and garden :-)))

Sunbathe?....oh yes, Saturday...that was back in the summer! ;))

Friday was fantastic here,like being abroad but Sunday was all thunder and lightning :-))

Nothing so exciting here, just cloudy days and one sunny Saturday!

Thought it looked a bit like 'Shaggy' but can't be sure, mines not open yet.

I will look that one up Simbad, cos that sounds familiar! Thanks! :)

It looks different to my Shaggy :-/
Did you see my recent pic of it, there's no hint of pink on it :-/

You're right Louise, my Shaggy just starting to open today and no pink on it, sorry Karensusan.

Thanks everyone. Louise, I don't think it is Buckland. I will look into it a bit. Thanks though....

Hi I dont think this is shaggy, it should not have any pink on it, lovely flower .

7 Jun, 2010

 

Ok, will go back to ??? then....for now!!

Had a look at Crocus website and think it could just be plain old Astrantia Major....

7 Jun, 2010

 

I think so, too, probably...but there 'is' quite a lot of pink, more than on A. major??

7 Jun, 2010

 

Thanks B. I will leave it as it is for now.....
