Lace - but which one?

I bought this Primula two years ago at Powerscourt Garden Centre but it did not have a label unfortunately, I just liked it!!  I saw Fran's journal which showed one which looked very similar called Black Lace and then Rachel mentioned Gold Lace, I googled both and they both looked very alike - what is the difference does anyone know and which one is this? 

I just love it, even my hubby was flown away by it when I showed him (must be impressive).  It has really bulked up well in two years so will be dividing it at some stage (watch this space!).

Grevillea

Last year when out Walking, I came across a gorgeous Grevillea in flower (didn't know the name at the time, I thought it was a conifer!!  Woops!)  It was very healthy and bushy so I took a couple of small pieces in the hope of growing it from cuttings.  I literally stuck them in a pot and this is the result - now flowering!

Do you think it would be okay to separate them now into two pots.  Should I go back this year and take a few more cuttings??  ;)

Last March I put up a photo of my sad looking Wulfenii, I had bought a healthy plant and neglected it in its pot over the winter.  I cut it back and now look at it, the picture of health again, so am delighted with it, thanks for all your advice.

I can't believe the amount of ladybirds out there, there are hundreds everywhere, here are a couple of photos, not sure whether you will be able to see them all!

I think because of all the wet weather the Pieris shrubs have done very well this year, it is certainly the best year yet for this Pieris Japonica Bonfire, it is giving great colour at the moment.
