How fab is that?
You states guys are so good to be in touch with because apart from your 'non-stiff-upper-Brit-lip' enthusiasm for life some of your plant enthusiasms are so completely different, that I actually learn some plants!
Thanks for that.
Great photo!

I'm not so wordless today! Oh, to finally see it in flower! I found this at Fort Collins Wholesale Nursery in 2004; sited it in my firepit garden which transitioning into the foothills surrounds...and never saw it again, as I finally moved to the mountains Spring, 2005. I loved the leaves and it hardy looking nature. How neato to finally see the blossoms!

Robert, it is great fun, this world wide web, to meet, see, and learn from great gardeners everywhere!

Genevieve, these blooms are a treat for me, too. The buds usually freeze with our late snows, but this year the weather was (finally!) more accommodating.

Glad you all enjoyed the photo!
