Ornithogalum magnum is native to the Caucasus. 

Came to me as Ornithogalum  fimbriatum which I don't think it is.

Heavenly scented Philadelphus and finally some decent flowers on my Roscoea cautleoides now that I placed the pot in a part of the garden where  there are much less slugs & snails.

Very nice combination of blue iris and Geranium x magnificum. That geranium is also starting to flower here right now, a week earlier than normally.
Here are some pictures from this week.
Geranium phaeum 'Album' with Dicentra spectabilis
Peony 'Red Charm'
Third picture is of an old heirloom variegata type iris found in Finland maybe 80 years ago.
In last picture there are two white Iris sibirica (or hybrids), in the right smaller flowering 'Butterfly Fountain' and in the left side some flowers of bigger flowering 'White Swirl'.

A rather happy clump of Cypripedium reginae at a friend's garden. Ken is her gardener and he seems to have this orchid nicely satisfied. Buds coloured a day later - pic 1 yesterday, pic 2 just now.

Thanks Kris. What a superb clump of pubescens!

Both Caltha are Winter-dormant dying back to resting buds. Barthei can become fairly large but the pink-flowered one remains rather compact. They have not been fully tested here though did survive prolonged freezing in pots over this last winter (-7C minimum). They are best kept on the dry side when dormant.

You've got more sun there than in Aberdeen!     Love the  Leptospermum scoparium 'Red Damask' - I don't think I've seen that around.
Doing well for you, though - seen here in your post from 2009 :

Ah! Yes Maggi, I had completely forgotten about that 2009 post.
I lost that plant quite a few years ago, and the photo also!
The plant I have now is about 3 years old and was quite damaged this past winter.
I did my best to protect it with a “bandage” of fleece but a very strong wind blew (the neighbours) fence over and took the fleece to the corner in the garden.
The neighbours have since replaced 3 fence panels.
I just hope my Leptospermum wil survive this trauma. ???

A couple more Campanula:-

David, your campanula photos have me wishing I could grow them better. Never mind names, they are all gorgeous.  My garden is blue at the moment but unfortunately not campanulas, they won't put  up with the lack
of water and either limp along or don't bloom. The blue here is supplied by Moltkia petraea. One exception here is
Campanula betulifolia, which seems to handle drought better than the rest of them. Loved all your pictures.

A nice selection David.

Some views of a trio of troughs with an assortment including Rhododendron 'Panda', Roscoe 'Penine Purple' Linnaea borealis, Allium insubricum (or narcissiflorum)

Graham, your  new garden is certainly coming along splendidly, congratulations.
