This very tiny Begonia grown from a piece Gail gave me
On the Label I have written Strawberry Begonia
Maybe I got it wrong as it has very tiny White Flowers.
I googled Strawberry Begonia Images and this name came up
Saxifraga sarmentosa it looks like it too except some have pink in the flowers



Oncidium *Dancing Lady Orchids* are starting to open.



This Brom is huge and colouring up at last. I split it up earlier this year
Gave some away and put this piece in another part of the garden.

MA that first flower looks like it was in a strong wind and half the petals were blown off.Very unusual.
Love the Oncidium Orchid .
The brom is fab, the broms youv sent me Ithink 7 are doing well I will get Faye to do pics.

The wind has been terrible here Gwen, though that little plant is right near the trunk of my favourite tree where all the birds bath so out of the way of the wind, it was very hard to get a pic so low to the ground and its kind of dark there too..

I don't think I gave you any of this Brom did I Question as its pups are big too.
I would love to see the pics of those broms banana banana

Me too Fay. I had never heard of it and if I had not noticed the flowers when looking for the top of the hose I would never have seen it as it looks like they are near their end. Sad
