Congratulations, Trond-- only about 6 weeks after me  ;D
Nice lights! I'm just depening on snow/frost and moonlight ;) if we don't have those, it will be a little plain...lol

Nice little 'stinkweed' Lori seems to be a very charming genus apart from the obvious ;)

Cohan, I honestly do hope my spring isn't 6 weeks after yours ;D

Both the Thlaspi and the Veronica are stunning, Lori! Selfsown?

Cliff, your pictures are making me homesick for my "second home".

Lori's stunning image of Veronica bombycina v. bolgardagensis really can't be beat...your garden must be something! Super rock work.

But I have recently been sorting images and found my shots of what I think is my favorite of the genus: see attached!

The first three are bolgardagensis, and the last is Veronica thymoides v. pseudocinerea...Love those blues!

For every minion of the peaks there are a dozen steppe children growing in the dry Continental heart of all hemispheres still unknown to horticulture.

Beautiful Veronicas, Panayoti.

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy and floriferous New Year to all forum administrators, posters, lurkers and visitors from an unseasonably warm Lancashire.
