NOTES ABOUT CONFUSIONS

What we have labeled WINSTON CHURCHILL is in fact almost certainly PINK SPANGLES, also known as Mieke Meursing. 1969 (Hopgood) (I have 2, Hazel has one)

 What we have labeled PINK SPANGLES may well be DARK EYES, though this was not listed on the boxes we bought. It is double, red tube and sepals with purple corolla blotched with red. Equally, it could be WINSTON CHURCHILL since it also looks like pictures, though I wouldn't describe the corolla as 'blue'. (I have 1, Hazel has 2.)

Then there is the Woodies DARK EYES which turned out to be a delightful Red/white, with the lovely habit of the Red Tube/sepals 'cradling' the white double corolla. Think it could be Swingtime, but not sure.

NO CONFUSION

I got a cutting of LADY BACON from Jimi Blake of Huntingbrook Gardens, and bought a pot of CORALLINA from his sister, June Blake who lives next door.

FINALLY ...

In case you think I only grow fuchsias, here is a Japanese Anemone I got from Auntie Ede - who passed on her love of gardening which she must have learned from our grandmother, Edith.
