I have just looked at your other photo and see that you did! What is the secret of your success? I cannot get them to grow well.
September fahre ich nach Hamburg eine Freundin zu besuchen. Mein Deutsch ist schrecklich! Aber kann ich "ein Stuck Haselnusstorte, bitte" sagen. Tschuss!

Hi, Hibrazilmac and Janney! It is from last year´s seeds. I have them in a big pot with Dianth. caryophyllus, nasturtium, other seedlings (and white lilies, most of which are frozen or drowned...). I take "normal" balcony-flower-soil, 1 - 2 times a year I give some lime (chalk) to it and sometimes a little fertilizer. They get sun from noon till sundown. - Maybe You try it once again...??

And not to forget, Hibrazilmac, welcome to GOY and in september: welcome to germany. Hamburg is such a lovely town. Once I lived there for 2 ys.- Your german seems to be quite O.K.!

Is it the light shining through the drops that's changing the color? What a nice effect!

No, Tasteyg, - maybe I shoulgn´t tell it, but it just LOOKS good in the moment , but it´s like wounds to the flower. Colour and structure are gone after drying up.

Nelke- Thanks for sharing your secret ;~) It's a very nice effect!
