I love seeing what people are sharing as their treasure for the day.Siobhan Lancaster has been promised seeds of this cerinthe that grows in her neighbour's garden. What an amazing deep colour it is, a definite jewel.Felixlovesfabric shared this purple and blue combination that they also love in fabric and rightly so. These poppies, cornflowers and forget me nots weave so well together.Barbara Segall shared these wonderful variagated basil plants 'Basil Pesto'. As beautiful as they are tasty I am sure. A good treasure to share.shopping list of must-have plants. This plant has just gone on the list. Marysa Norris shared this wonderful treasure and says: This lovely leaf belongs to Filipendula 'Red Umbrellas'. I love this time of year when the emerging foliage is so fresh and vibrant. Flowers are lovely but foliage offers some real garden treasures too. Much nicer than the half eaten baby rabbit that my cat left for me to find on the doorstep. I think it was meant as a gift or maybe it was a warning." My cats leave similar warnings for me.....
Plants@Work shared this handful of treasures. Proof that treasure comes in all shapes and sizes.Grainne Jackson shared this wonderful bowl of treasure which looks after itself and has been planted up for three years now. Plants that just behave so well are such a treasure.
Mary shared this plant determined to join in a barbeque as her treasure. I think it fair to say the plant got its wish. A good treasure to find.

This is not a tulip to forget!
