    Your second picture is Bougainvillea and I'm not too sure about the first picture but it could be a type of geranium. I need a second opinion on that one.

    I think the second one might be Actonidia. I don't think it has flowers as such but coloured bracts.

    You're right LB. That'll be the Baileys. image

    The first one reminds me of a scented pelargonium I have - does it have velvety leaves and smell a bit like apple??

     Have you ever tried it in coffee in place of milk? Heaven!

    Yes I have. I was once fog bound at East Midlands airport when someone suggested it. Delish!

    Wow I'll have to try that one too. Sounds just as heavenly. Chocolate - Baileys a match made in heaven.

    I think the first one is a scented leaf pelargonium, second one is a bougainvillea.

     I like Tia Maria in my coffee, with double cream floating on top.image
