    Well it *is* small...but then again beauty lies in variety. Don't get me wrong, I find big blooms gorgeous, but look at this tiny plant with its miniature blooms!Some things in smaller form are prettier, like bonsai trees, wouldn't you agree? Besides...it's perfect for my little vivarium (only 30X15cm), where I keep my species seedlings.

    That's interesting, I never realised. Dinky is the word I would have used too. Could have been another tits/chikadees saga

    Just to clarify for those people of non UK persuasion who don't understand what I would mean by saying dinky - when us English speakers use the word it refers to something small and cute/ attractive. Think little kid's versions of adult shoes or a shetland pony, that sort of thing.

    I did have it spelt out to me, by an american, that one should never ever refer to a man's equipment as dinky.

    Anyway, I'm going now to see if I can spot some tits out the window!
