        It is not garden related but has flowers on it. :heehee: We have always wanted a Tiffany lamp so ...

        Had a hassle getting it from Amazon UK so went to Amazon Spain ... much cheaper too. Can't wait for it to arrive but could be up to a month. :cry3:

            Bought this a few days ago, £2.99 I think.
            It was unnamed, but I think I've nailed it down to Echiveria "tarantula":biggrin:

              Hairy like tarantula legs. Is it spikey or soft to touch?

              Its actually soft, it is in a dry state, just wonder if it will fill out bigger when it gets some water.

                Being impatient to back up the Rose "Paul's Scarlet" which I have planted on the garden side of the Trellis Entrance ready for Spring I had another search for a bare root suitable Climbing Rose, (as there doesn't seem to be any available that are grown in pots), I ordered.......

                Climbing Rose "The Pilgrim" which is a repeat flowerer

                which should arrive early next month.

                  I like tiffany lamps too. Just a couple in the house as more would be overkill. I think..

                  Here is one of mine.. I call ner Mimi :)

                    She is very elegant Lori. Very ArtDeco. We had a pair of wall sconces like below in dark green opaque glass, but I only found out the other day T'other Half left them in the Cabin when we sold it three years ago! :thud: We have for many years a Cat lamp on our bureau with gold opaque fan background (sorry, bad Christmas photo).

                      Order of seeds just arrived (from 2 suppliers in Oz, courtesy of my brother in Perth). Notice the enormous seeds in the middle - santalum acuminatum

                            Do you go through all the rigmarole with smoke-treatment for Aussie seeds, @CarolineL?
