    Beautiful, pip! Feel like I'm sitting in the garden! :rolleyes:

    I've noticed all the Bunny Ears cactus is blooming here now ... aren't they lovely? And the massive size of them is quite mind boggling.

    I just love Lampranthus ... I've got the purple, red, orange and yellow now.

    Look forward to your wildlife pics.

    Found this old thread and thought I would show you a few photos from Ciovo, Croatia. It's just off the mainland, south of Split. My hostess has an apartment here and was able to show me to more natural, non- touristy places near her.
    Croatia has yet to be "discovered" by tourists but their numbers are rapidly increasing and Split airport has just had a significant expansion.
    Would recommend Croatia - still unspoiled,

            THE LOST GARDEN OF HELIGAN

            received_388997265365867.jpeg
            I remember a garden makeover TV programme where the homeowners made a mud head. The professional gardener wasn't impressed. I like the idea. I might find room for one someday.

            An impressive array of dahlias.

            Are these geraniums? I've never seen red or yellow ones before. They looked great.
