  6. Oh, yes, you certainly do have some lovely blooms to share! I'm planning to replace some Barberries with some Beautyberries. They are so gorgeous and not invasive here. Happy bloom day!

  7. Wow, you have some unique plants. I am especially smitten with Leonitis (possibly because I am a leo and because it is orange).
