This morning I selected a little bunch of flowers that have popped up. Borage and Aquilegia, self sown from the original sowing over two years ago. Tulip, rich and dark but tiny as its bulb weakens over the years. An Allium Purple Sensation which also has self sown. Geum Totally Tangerine and Spraxis a tiny bulb which pops up each year.
I have white Borage as well as the more familiar blue. I think the seed originally came from Jekka McVicar. Perhaps not quite as striking but none the less pretty.
I nearly forgot the beautiful purple Cerinthe major. This was originally sown three years ago and now pops up where it likes.
So a little mix of colour and flower today for my vase on Monday. Joining our host Cathy and other bloggers from around the globe.
Have a great week. Stay home, stay safe wherever you are and thanks for reading. D.
Today is a beautiful hot Summers day. The weather man appeared to have got it right as I nipped out with my camera at around 7.30am. A clear blue sky with the sillouette of the Thalictrum Elin.
The trouble with high sun is that it somehow bleaches the colours of the plants and makes them tricky to photograph. Earlier in the morning however I was able to capture the view before the sun moved onto them.
Grasses look wonderful in the sunlight but are rather difficult to picture clearly. This is Pheasant Tail grass and its shadow this morning.
The colours of Verbena bonariensis and Joe pye weed are blending well and drifting throughout each of the four beds.
Closer up the Joe pye weed is most attractive
Sanguisorba is finally beginning to flower.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks view. Be sure to take a look at Cathy’s blog https://wordsandherbs.wordpress.com
Finally I want to share the beautiful blue in the weed bed. More about that another time. Borago officinalis.
