  8. Bindweed is a weed here in Scotland aswell though ours is pure white. That chocolate silk rose is amazing looking – it really does look like fine silk from your photograph. Thanks Muhammad for visiting my blog – you were one of my very first commenters nearly 3 years ago when I first started blogging.

  10. The Morning Glory flowers are beautiful.
    Good to see other colours other than Blue.
    Here in the UK they are of course classed as tender but we can grow them through the simmer outside.
