Thank you for compliments, Maggi. You now see my method of photography - take lots and lots. We have had the most awful weather for the past week or so, very high winds and torrential rains leading to flooding. I live opposite a river and on such occassions it spreads the 100 - 150 metres from its normal banks right up to my gate, sometimes as high as 1 metre at the gate, but it doesn't last long as the river is tidal.

Ranunculus calandriniodes is simply beautiful - many thanks Franz. It hasn't flowered as yet this season here and is one that I always await with great anticipation.

Isn't this a beauty? Handmade by NN. The crossing is Iris reticulata 'Cantab' x winogradowii

Gerben,

A very nice plant. The blue is an especially good shade. Did any other bulbs flower from this crossing?  I imagine you might get some plants with a little more blue which would then make a good background to show the yellow to better effect.

Very promising. Many thanks for the photograph.

Please advise: who is NN?

that plant could be a real winner if it is hardy and gets mass produced

This hardy selected reticulata Iris is a real winner and will be on the market, fingers crossed, in a few years. These two bulbs are the only ones we have. Well Paddy I can only call this person Nomen Nescio, the well known unknown.

It certainly is a beauty Gerben and exactly what I love, reticulate irises being among my most favourite things. I'll try the same cross next spring when both are in bloom. My `Cantab' sets a little seed most years and winogradowii does, if hand pollinated. Thanks for showing the hybrid.

We've had freezing fog for 2 days, but it does have its advantages:

excellent photos Anne. I'm happy we missed out on the cold snap that came with the fog. There must have been lovely clear skies above it all

nice pictures Anne - are there any frosted ferns to show us too?

Nothing worth photographing in my garden at the moment- hopefully soon there will be.

Hard frost last night, but the fog has lifted so had to nip out early to get these shots before the sun spoiled them. Top is Epimedium x versicolor 'Sulphureum, Asplenium scolopendrium Marginatum Gp, and Polypodium  australe Omnilacerum Gp 'Rickard'.
Next is Adiantum venustum, then Polystichum setiferum Divisilobum Gp.

I also like your reticulate iris Gerben, if it increases by bulbils like winogradowii it will be a real winner.

Anne, I just love your garden and how the fog and frost add to its beauty.
I would love to have more room than we have so I could plant up a big area with grasses and taller bulbs etc.
