An exquisite juno Peter. Is it close to I. rosenbachiana or perhaps persica? I'm glad you showed the two shots. And what a wonderful bulb house! So full of treasures. I hope we can see many more of them as they flower.

You can get Swedish meatballs in Somerfield, Tescos and Ikea etc. We have them on occasion.

I also know them from IKEA, but I'm sure, Peter's meatballs are much better than these  ;)

Peter's Swedish meatballs are SWEDISH Swedish meatballs! :P

A quick note Thomas, your seeds arrived yesterday. They look great, many thanks.

Having been a very happy recipient of Peter's hospitality and cooking, I can assure you that his food would be MUCH better than anything bought in a shop!!!!
cheers

Great looking Juno Peter - but shouldn't you hang up a calendar in front of it - the poor thing is even flowering in the wrong year... ;D

No. It´s a spring flower so the winter must have passed!!! We have had a few cm snow and -8C and I think that is enough.

What a stunning iris! especially if the pic is true to colour; black, grey, white and gold. How cool is that!!
