What's this? Another day of sunshine! Good grief what a novelty, still, I shall enjoy it while it lasts. (Mind you with a rather nasty sniffy little cold, I can only potter about the garden without a major coughing fit) What better excuse to get the camera out and go looking for a little colour. (I was inspired by a fellow blogger to make these mosaics of my garden - thank you purple threads :) )
Shades of whites and greens -
Astrantia Major, Wild Garlic, Aruncus dioicus, Spirea japonica,
Comfrey (Russian - I think), Euphorbia amygdaloides, Tiarella cordifolia, Tellima gradiflora,
Rodgersia, Solomon's Seal, Microlepia fern, and the unknown flower - any ideas? I have given up looking for it in my books or on the tinter, so any suggestions?
Blues, Purples and almost blacks
Geranium phaeum , Speedwell, Geum Rivale Leonard's variety, Clematis Pamela Jackson, Geranium phaeum 'Mourning Widow'
Chives (in tight bud), Dicentra formosa, Geranium phaeum 'Rachel's Rhapsody', Alchermilla mollis leaf with water droplets,, Forget-me-knots
Oranges, yellows, pinks and lime green
Geum 'Mrs Bradshaw', Alpine Strawberry, primula, Euphorbia griffithii and orange Welsh poppies,
Aquilegia, Celindine, Euphorbia amygdaloides , Aquilegia
What a pleasant way to spend a bit of time in my garden :)
Hope you got out into the sun today xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx hawthorn
