Lori - the plant looks great and the setting looks so right! More and more I am convinced that we need to create an area of tufa garden but I don't think it would ever be so natural looking.

I do the same as you in recording plantings around the garden - that is digital photographs annotated by hand on printouts. I used maps from very early on in the garden, but it is very much easier to locate plants in photographs and memory only works so far. Even better is to have a kind visitor who also knows the plants and can jog the memory!

Lori- the Waldheimia was  a single germination out of it's batch, but it has proved tough since then!

The Thlaspi is very nice- my first flower of the year on the acreage was a Thlaspi- but not nearly as choice as yours  ;D ( I think Thlaspi, not always paying enough attention to distinguish some of the other common white flowered weedy cresses)

Cute little thing :) I have some seedlings up of a couple of the Hieraciums and relatives I sowed; I'm just hoping they don't flower at this time of year- when so much of the countryside and my yard is yellow, yellow flowers in the garden are much less appreciated!
