They are a lovely colour - do you have a name for it Shirley?

They do, Karen ... definitely not a pillar box red!

Angie, my detective skills have failed me! I only know they were ordered from GW magazine and arrived in November 2011 - but I have just e-mailed GW to ask if they can shed some light on the name - so watch this space! Off to watch Chelsea Flower Show now .....

I enjoyed the Chelsea coverage tonight...on both channels. I thought Monty did a good job on BBC2, and the gardens looked wonderful. I can't wait to see it all in person on Friday!

You shouldn't have gone to that bother for me Shirley - much appreciated though :)
I had forgot you were off the Chelsea Karen, have a great time. Although, I suppose we don't need to tell you that :)
