That explains it Graham. I've always been highly resistant to evangelists of whatever shade. But I don't need conversion to miniatures, in fact I love them. It's just the split cups and most (not all) doubles that I continue to resist. ;D

Dogs are miniature and appear to be up with latest fashion trends. The cat is definitely NOT miniature. 8)

Please tell me that Monte has NOT eaten the dogs!!  He looks like he could have done ..... though their wooly costumes might be a preventive measure.... :-X

Monte is short for Montasaurus. He is around 8.5 kilograms. Dogs are only around 4 kilograms. Unfortunately he is something of a softy (except when he is being removed to the cat house for the night when leather gloves are required). He lets the currawongs into the cat house to eat the cat food. He only eats an expensive brand of dry food. Dogs are alive and well but they give him a wide margin. The claws and teeth are in proportion to his size! He has taken over their dog bed.
It has been wet and cold here for the last two days. This has slowed up the daffodils. Most unfortunate as the show is on this weekend.

Hi
A few more photos. They include two of our tiniest hybrids. I have not worked out whether they are triandus hybrids or jonquilla hybrids. I suspect one of the parents was N. scaberulus.
Lesley, you will see that you don't necessarily end up with a split cup when you use N. cordubensis as the parent.

Graham, you have some lovely miniatures - I just love N cypri and the tiny pale yellow hybrid  :)
