Zvone,.. thank you for sharing your links
fantastic photos and I would think fantastic experiences..
I can see where you got your inspiration for your garden.

Those flowers are Rhododendron, and the purple flower is a Penstemon or a Mimulus?

what kind of pine are in the hiking photos from Slovenia?
    thanks          edzard

Zvone, thanks for the Latin name of the plant Acinos alpinus,

would you also know the Latin name for the 'knee pine'?
is it one of the Pinus mugho group?
