So colourful

posted in: General

There seems to be more colour in our garden every day. The peonies are really looking good right now, as are the big poppies. This deep pink one is a particular favourite. The spiky green of the Eryngiums adds a great contrast to the bright colours of the poppies

Foxgloves starting to flower all around the garden – they are such great self seeders! Liking them so much that I am gathering ideas for another foxglove 3D embroidery project, as it is a few years since I produced the last one.

Little orchids coming into flower as well and they seem to love pots and sinks and also self seed prolifically.

Another beautiful rose that shows the palest differences in colour from flower to flower and has a beautiful, delicate scent. Two years ago we thought it was on its last legs but we pruned it back really hard and it had a couple of blooms on it last year and is looking really good this year, with lots more flowers. No idea what it is called, as it is another one that was well established when we moved into the house.
