Yes, here they are, what we call emperor's crown! Beautiful photo, Lesley. they are wonderful in yellow and in orange with their decorative leaves. I have taken some new photos of them as well in a farmer's garden, but not uploaded yet. Mine are not so professionally standing out like yours, but together with some other flowers and with a fence on the back, thus looking less noble as their relatives in Arley Hall. ;))

Warm wishes, May

Dear May........I'll just go and delete mine now :-DD..... (I can't wait to see it. It sounds very beautiful!)

Peter so good to 'see' you again :-)) I am waiting for your images of Fritillaria imperialis to appear. I think it is wonderful the way we all began with Snowdrops, followed by Eranthis, Anemones, Pulsatilla, Daffodils and now the Bluebells are appearing. What a community :-)))

Very best wishes to my lovely friends, Lesley

Good heavens, Lesley, by no means! I am not sure if I will upload mine, since I saw yours... Warm wishes to you and Peter!

May, I couldn't resist saying that (I was joking) - you must upload it. I am so looking forward to seeing it - It is fun all of us uploading the same plant/plants :-))) PLEASE

I'm glad you liked it 乾龍! The little girl on your signature photo is she a member of your family?

Kind regards, Lesley
