Nearly Summer....

Summer's on the way with huge floppy oriental poppies...

..self-set aquilegias in every shade of pink, rose, purple and white...

...huge peonies just opening..

The flower beds are edged in a frill of London Pride

and hiding under the taller plants are sweetly scented lily of the valley

There's always one unseasonal flower though - a really early flowering kaffir lily


  1. Many beautiful flowers.

  2. With these aquilegias pictures you have helped me ID the flowers which have popped up in different places in my garden! I thought they were too pretty to be weeds, but no idea how they got there!

    1. Glad to be helpful! I wonder how they got there....many birds spreading the seed?

    2. Yes, I thought that must have been the case. There are quite a few aquilegias and a poppy growing in my drive (which desperately needs to be re-gravelled!) I could work out what the poppy was but not the others.
