  1. A beautiful world in miniature. You have reminded me, I once had a garden full of such plants but they have slowly disappeared, and now I wonder where they went? What happened to them?

    1. Maybe they just gradually faded, Deborah and came to the end of their natural life.

  2. There are such wonderful plant combinations here, Sue. It's lovely to see them looking so healthy and happy. I am delighted to see Aubretia!

  3. I've always enjoyed the softness of spring colors---your combinations are charming. A true delight! Is that deep blue one a phlox? I'm in love with it!

  4. Lovely little flowers, I love the dark blue one. It looks a lot like blue lobelia I had couple of years ago. Such rich blue colour is so rare in flowers and I just adore it.

  5. WOW...these are some vibrant springtime colors. I especially love the yellow flower at the end...my late grandparents would have loved that, as yellow flowers were their favorite :)

  9. It's looking great Sue, alpines are so rewarding, you can pack in so much colour and texture into a small space.

    1. One of the advantages of having the flowers raised up is that you are treated to a great view, Dina.

  12. Definitely! I do enjoy midget flowers too - they add great contrasts to other plants too. Great colours, I'm still enjoying the purple aubretias - snap :-)

    1. At one time every garden had aubretia didn't it, Shirley? For some reason it fell out of favour.
