    1. I thought so, a different variety than my Valley Valentine...and maybe it is just your more robust climate that makes the buds so large as ours are shivering in their smallness))). Thank you Sue.

  11. I keep telling myself it won't be long. I'm not sure who I'm trying to kid!
    Can I ask what the plant is in the bottom 2 pictures please Sue? It's lovely. Lots of buds here too and we had our first snow this afternoon!
