Wow, Marrion! What a great collection of flowers! :D The colours look fantastic. How long do the Jockey Caps last? (And what's the little bell-flowered plant bottom left - reminds me of Christmas Bells). :D :D

Unfortunately the Jockey Caps only last for a day but they are so vibrant, I have yellow ones in another part of the garden too. The little bell-flowered plant is actually some kind of Alstroemeria and its quite invasive so I only allow a bit of it to flower, some one gave it to me and it tried to take over the garden, it is pretty though.

:D Our Jockey Cap Lilies are out too Marrion ... aren't they incredibly coloured ... we bought the mixture, and they're in every colour - red, yellow, orange, and white (Y) 8)

I haven't seen a white one, Lea, any chance of a photo?

Yeah, Lea - I'd love to see a photo as well - could you, please. :D I have looked at them in catalogues, but I reckon it's best to see them when they're in a garden. They seem so incredibly vibrant - and intricate in little colour differences.

Wow!!! It's all so bright and sunny, Marrion. I never realised that Jockey's caps were so large - just goes to show that a picture in a catalogue doesn't really tell the whole story.

what's the little bell-flowered plant bottom left


It's alstroemeria, Luzy.
