Firstly, I was overwhelmed by your kind User Awards on my "Garden Gift", and grateful to CarolG for identifying the hybrid tea rose that I inherited. Thanks go to Lucien, Eileen, Ed, Netta, Carol, Maureen and Jane.
I've been in Winchester for 2 years now, but when on Hayling Island I had a wonderful lavatera which was aspiring to be a tree, and I had to chain it up to the garden shed because it grew so tall. I loved it so much. Then, one winter, it died. So I treated myself to another one for my new garden here and it is doing really well.
This is a re-work of an old image of the previous plant, so its beauty lives on.
The Fuji S7000 macro is so good that even after having it stolen in Spain, I bought another second-hand one.
