Thanks :)
I have to say the colour on it is not quite right. The second picture I took is nearer.

The Aconite I tried to grow started very slowly...it didn't like being transplanted (necessary because I had to move the bed)...it flopped on it's side and I thought it was not going to bloom...but bloom it did...and it was so pretty...not as good a specimen as yours, I'm afraid.
I really like it's colour. and it seems to like compost...because that's where it's growing (compost pile). lol....heard lots of scary stories about it's being a deadly poison though...so I watch and made sure I didn't plant it near my dogs favourite sleeping spots!
