14 February: Oh, really?

The flower and plant stall in Durham had some interesting items on sale yesterday.

As well as MASCARI and CORDELINES, there were PALM'S, CROCESS, and my particular favourite, CYCLEMEN.

Ah, Marco Pantani and Miguel Indurain!

It's still cold enough that I could buy some pansies -- which only last until June, when they tend to fry. However, I have to wait about a month before the nurseries begin to load up with annuals for my pot-gardens.

Don't forget Djamolidine Abdoujaparov

Oh dear, no one seems to be able to spell these days!

So did you buy yourself any cyclemen, then?
( we get plenty of those when the Tour de France goes buy, but they're here one minute and gone the next...)
