Yay, it’s time to flaunt my flowers once more with Tootsie over at:
A self-seeded Aquilegia that came with me from the last house is flowering at long last… This is one I’ve been waiting for, with the lovely shaggy petals. I just love it and wish I had more of them, but hopefully we’ll get more seedlings from this one!
Geranium Phaeum is in bloom, and looking stunning!
Another Geranium coming into bloom, I am unsure which exactly it is as I was given it by a friend.
Creeping Phlox is blooming, last year it didn’t bloom for me so I’ve only just discovered its endearing little flowers… I want to buy more to cover the bare slope…
Next door’s white Lilac is out, it has more blooms this year so I don’t feel quite so bad for stealing some to put in a vase… I love their double blooms.
Of course the Forget-me-nots are still blooming… I hope I get more next year.
Alpine Strawberry is blooming, I look forward to its small fruits
And then there’s tiny wild Forget-me-not that pops up around the garden every year.
Not strictly blooming, but this Pyracanthus will soon be attracting the insects.
Alliums are blooming, there’s now 27 in this border… I know I didn’t plant that many in there. Sadly some of the heads seem to be small for some reason, I wonder if they’ve been damaged somehow.
This lovely foamflower I bought yesterday, there’s a market in the city centre selling a whole range of things and these plants were in very good condition… I only bought the one, went back to buy another but it’d gone and tried again today but the stall wasn’t there at all 😦 It sure it going to look lonely when I plant it!
I also picked up this gorgeous Fern… I don’t remember its name, but I do have a tag for it…
Right, I’ll have to get back to my essays now, no rest for the wicked and all that!
