    Ed, I really like Dick Smith (would love to meet him). Hate to be a bother, But is it possible for you to take a shot without the light behind, so that I can see what the colour combinations really look like. very unusual.

    Very pleasing color. Most of the splash types I just find too garish. Yours is just lovely.

    If I had to get rid of my catts this is one I would try to keep, the fragrance in the morning is wonderful and it blooms twice a year.
