Oh, let's have some colour! Here's a photo I didn't get chance to post earlier... These are some of my favourite plants - pretty little alpines displayed in a glasshouse at RHS Harlow Carr. I know the pink one is a Lewisia; I love those. The yellow one's label says Morisia. The blueish one may be some type of primula. Alpines are mostly quite small plants but exquisite in form and colour. In a large garden like Harlow Carr, they grow these 'behind the scenes' and bring each one out when it is at its flowering peak. Thus their display always looks stunning and constantly changes, not something you could replicate easily in a domestic setting.
