I've got Cystus.

A few years ago I planted a shrub which I bought from a garden centre in Widnes. I had never heard it's name before and thought I would chance my luck. You never really know how a plant or shrub will do in your garden because some plants don't do well in certain types of soil. Normally you do a test to see how much acid is in your soil before picking the plants that you put in it, but I can't be arsed with all that. If the plant don't grow it goes in the bin.

The plant I bought is called a Cystus. " NO NOT CYSTITUS", CYSTUS" lol. Anyway it has matured now and the flowers it produces in the Summer are gorgeous. It has become my favorite flowering shrub and if you look at the photo you will see why I like it so much.

As you all know I am a big man, but I have a very gentle nature [don't laugh}. People will be surprised that I like flowers and some people think it's silly of a man my size to deal in art glass. Well I think that just goes to show what a big soft sweetie I am.

Before I end. Why isn't my spell checker working ???

Hi Norman, I was wondering if you could send me an email? I have something important to ask you about but I would like to keep it private. Since I'm standard and can't initiate contact....Thanks a lot.

    Why do you think during our "troubled times" I never completely gave up on you?

    Because when I see something in a person & connect with it, I'm not usually wrong. And in you I saw a sensitive, caring, decent man. So I waited..... I'm glad you're back
Yeah! Like she says! I've known it all along.

That flower really is beautiful, Tony!

Hey Tony,

nothing wrong with a guy having and interest in flowers and art. A lot of straight guys have these interests. It is just that guys don't have the opportunity to talk about these thing often. So we talk about the World Cup instead.

I was relieved to hear that you and others were having a problem with spell check. I thought something was wrong with my PC.

It is good to stop to smell the roses.

Good to hear from you Header. Hope the 4th of July went well for you in Washington.

I have roses everywhere. Climbing roses, potted roses, dwarf roses of all different colours. They do smell lovely. I have some lavender shrubs as well. I love the smell of Lavender.

You know I don't know why I use the spell checker anyway. It gives the American spellings. Half the time I am spelling the English way, the other half the American. I guess I can call myself bi lingual lol.
