    Beautiful spring blooms, Jordan. Hope the snow doesn't kill them off.

    cheers,

    thanks, and Haha, good one Bruce, great joke We have had snow here this year, for the first time in over a century. But it was the thinist dusting possible i think, and melted in 5 minutes.

    I like the white flowers best...very pretty. Spring is just coming there? We are in the dog days of summer here. It's hot with a "side" of humid. I get up and it's already over 80, some mornings warmer. If I don't water my flowers droop badly right now.

    Normally the Cerinthe would have tonnes of blooms all in a chain on it, but this one is a new seedling. I have tonnes of those too. Maybe i should pot them up and sell them to raise money for a flat or something up in Kaitaia next year?
