I just received this message from Barbara Ward Grubb:"Strong circumstantial evidence suggests that Lithodora diffusa 'Grace Ward'was named after my mother. I have easily found that plant, but I am searchingfor the variant named 'Baby Barbara.' The same circumstantial evidenceleads me to suspect that it was named after me around 1954. I would love to find pictures, actual plants, or seeds of 'Baby Barbara,'just so I know what it looks like. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Many thanks,Barbara Ward Grubb"
If anyone can supply information or - especially! - a plant or seeds, please contact Barbara directly at:firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your help -Joyce

Welcome in the club!
Not sure if this classified as an alpine but y willow gentian, Gentiana asclepiadea is starting to open.
Very nice! That seems to be one that I cannot get established... no reason for it, though.
Here are some from out in the wild blue yonder... very late ones, and probably the last I will see this year:1) Veronica wormskjoldii 2) Delphinium bicolor3) Myosotis alpestris, now Myosotis asiatica
