Ok, thanks, I'll check it out. Mine is so far behind yours it's not easy to compare them. But the green stems is a good clue. Its pouring rain here at the moment. :(

I love the colour of this one Shirley we bought a small one in France last year as you know they close all shops between 12-2.00pm leaving their good outside well I saw this plant with the price tag on it the shop was shut what do you do ? I left the money in a plant pot where they could find it ,at least I hope they did :o)

Hi Shirley_Tulip, wonderful autumn colours ..... Did I just say autumn ? :~ ((

Amy, I'm sure the money was found! Made me think of the stalls often seen in country lanes in the West country where eggs and flowers are for sale - just take what you want and leave the money in the box! Pretty sure the box would be stolen around here ... :o(

Lol Alan - they really do make one think of Autumn :o)
