  15. Love the Primulas and used to plant them a lot, but went into oblivion for a long time. The dark coloured geranium is very ornamental, have not seen one with dark leaves. Early Jonquils, happy to see them.
    Sorry to read that your brother has passed away. It is always hard to say goodbye for ever.

  17. Jonquills - like them. Yes it looks like walking into the light. It also look like the earth i round or is it flat...

    Rainbow - did you find the gold in the end of the rain bow?

  25. So ist die Welt recht unterschiedlich, dort Winter und hier Mitsommer.
    Schön wenn man dann doch kleine Farbtupfer in der Natur hat.
