London's Pride








London Pride is such a simple little plant. So often taken for granted as ground cover. But if you get down, up close and personal you will see it has such an intricate flower. It really is amazing.

Ahh, always good to stop and smell the flowers! They are pretty little things, aren't they? :) Been having trouble commenting here again as my URL has changed so it doesn't want to let me log in with the new one. I'll keep logging in with the old if I can but the new one is http://www.vtroom.com just so you know. :)

How lovely - it's one of my favourites for that very reason. Lovely pictures.

I love London Pride - I haven't seen any for ages! I might buy some for my front garden!

Good to see you all here admiring the flowers.

Welcome to J9marshall - I like the look of your blog - will read more of it later.

London Pride isn't sold much at Garden Centres nowadays. You'll need to beg, borrow or steal some from a friend or neighbour.Charity stalls often have it.

I'll include your blog on my selection for June when I get around to updating my blogroll at the end of the month.

Small and perfectly formed. It's a saxifrage I see from your link. I am starting on plant identification now - pronouncing the names is something else!

Trust you to spot something exquisite LT :)
