Poppies and Aquilegias
It starts to feel like summer when the poppies flower. The small yellow welsh poppies have bee around for a week or two but today the first large pink oriental poppy opened.
Elsewhere the garden is filling with aquilegias - I love these because they self-set and spring up in unexpected places and unexpected colours year after year. The original ones were all pink but now they come in all sorts of shades from dark purple through to pale, almost-white - this year though I haven't spotted any deep magenta but not to worry they'll probably turn up again next summer
