Our garden is still a little bit sparse on the ‘pretties’, but I’m slowly getting more in. Here’s a colourful splash of some of our summer flowers.
Sweet alyssum (Lobularia maritima) is a Vege Garden flower staple.
The pansies (violas) in The Little Fulla’s vege garden are throwing up all sorts of colours. Here’s a sweet little white one.
Heuchera ‘Amethyst Myst’ has pretty, airy flower spikes of delicate white and pink shades, contrasting with the burgundy stems.
The yellow flowers in my garden are either in the Vege Garden or they’re weeds. This is a gherkin cucumber flower.
A calendula (Calendula officinalis) in the Vege Garden.
A butternut squash flower, which, incidentally, does look a bit squashed. There’s something delightful about it though.
Bee balm (Monarda ‘Prairie Fire’) always draws attention.
This red asiatic lily (Lilium ‘Detroit’) is always around at Christmas time.
Bee balm again.
Lavandula pedunculata ‘The Princess Lavender’. A gift from my grandparents.
Common chives may be a common herb but the flowers are pretty against a backdrop of Carex albula.
Calla lillies again. They get extra attention.
One of the hyrdrangeas out the front produces rich purple blooms.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia, unknown cultivar) in the Herb Garden.
The Summer Delight potatoes do not want to be overlooked with their purple flowers.
A purple and black pansy in The Little Fulla’s vege garden.
Salvia ‘Black and Blue’ is a pleasant sort of blue.
The huge blue hydrangeas are a force to be reckoned with. I’m not a big fan of the blue ones. They’re just keeping things interesting until I get around to changing the front garden.
