Close up of Fritillaria imperialis
You really must click on the image of this close up of the
fritillaria its fabulous ... I see this plant ever day that I
go to work driving by it and just love the composition and
colouring of it ... there is another one in the same family
that I am growning but its just a few leaves
right now but will post that one when its a bit bigger.
I think this one has to be a piece in a quilt. Quite chilly
outside today about 10 degrees, when the sun is not out.
This morning when I went walking it was foggggy could not
see 3o feet ahead of me but by the time I was walking back
home the fog was lifting. Went to a garden centre today got
two more clematis to go in the garden and two indoor plants,
one is bird of paradise and Platycerium grande or more commonly
known as staghorn fern ... these are some of my favorite plants.

Hotel lobby in Dominican Republic
I was going through some of my pics of trips of the past
and this one is of the Dominican Republic and the front of
the lobby. I love the bromiliads growing on the stumps
and if you look closely there is a wonderful lime green lizard
on the branch. I love lizards well the shapes of them but
perhaps not to touch them. The colours are just stunning.
My man is out for the night and here I sit on the computer
should be sewing "NAUGHTY GIRL" lets see how it goes
