I've found that I like the white Libbertia flowers peeking up through the Purple Rockrose Cistus, so I'll be moving some of the Libbertia seedlings over to live beneath the Rockrose...

Wow! Lots going on up there. Lots of color. Nothing worth photos down here due to the typical gloom, but sun for the next few days.

Cannot remember what it's called when the bloom is deformed such as this...want to say 'fastgiate', but that's not it...have never seen this happen with Linaria before...lol..

LOL! You were close, and I couldn't remember either after reading your attempt. It's a shame we can't clean out the junk and make more room on the memory banks like we do on the computer.

That really does look weird though.
