I want to move into Savona's greenhouse, and I want to walk down and up Orchidguy's garden path, and see everybody's lovely flowers.

And because these two of Giant Hogweed (and yours truly) take up so much space, I will post a couple of other Gs in a different thread. The GH is not the kind of plant you want to touch with bare hands, and it grows wild in the ditches here on the wet coast.

Laura, your geranium is just lovely - one of my all time favorite plants. And your grapes are always a winner.

Nice to see you posting Greg with such lovely photos.

Savona, it's always a pleasure to see pictures of your greenhouse and the lovely plants that started out there.

So glad you joined in Greg. I was hoping to see some pics from you. Just lovely ones at that! Great additions by all... I especially love the Grape Hyacinths and the greenhouse. Thanks for sharing. Sadly, I only have one G...a Gentian....but it is an terrible pic so I will wait for the H's.

Well, I've got Greenhouse envy (Savona) and Gazebo envy too (Dan and Lulu). That giant Hogweed is something else! :o
Beautiful bunch of G's everybody. Gernaiums have never been a real favorite but the newer ones certainly are beautiful and I love the ivies.... Greg, I'm glad to see you joined in, your gardens are beautiful.

The G's are wonderful!

Here's my contribution to the Soup:
Godetia, it's quite showy in bloom, but as soon as it's over, the plant goes kaput. I'll need to rethink where I plant it next year.

The lemons & oranges Gaillardia caught my eye as I am a huge gailladia fan. They failed to return for me but I really must try them again. Lulu, that gerbera container is so attractive.
All the G's are impressive and I had trouble decided which ones of mine I should use but decided on a Burgundy Gaillardia

I am very fond of different coloured foliage so have this little Golden privet which I hope will survive the winter.

and lastly, as it is Groundhog day, I felt I should include a picture of Ralph, the groundhog that stayed in my garden for a couple of months last summer. I found that by delivering a few choice bits (to him - compost to me) to his doorstep each morning, he was quite easy to live with.
