same here Tilly, it is nice when you find a new flower (Y) or a new pup. As yours in a sheltered area, I would love to plant some out but I think is would be far too cold down here, I have one basket full that stays outside, but in a protected area :roll:

Looks good tilly.... are they protected from the frost, or do they do OK in spite of it? I was wondering whether I could put a couple of mine out in the garden or whether to leave them in the shade house.
