A Bit of Colour

The sun is shining today
so I thought I would go get me some colour.


The Cornflowers,
Poppies
and Nasturtiums
I grew from seed.


These berries are in a wild bit behind the house.
We passed them this morning as we came back from a walk in the forest
with the hounds.
A feast for the birds
I'm sure.


I've been waiting for the Clematis to flower.
There were lots of buds just biding their time.
Yesterday one flower opened,
and today there are more.


The Poppies are scattered across the garden,
in various flower beds.
Mike thinks they look untidy!
But I think they are pretty,
so I don't care!


I always love Nasturtiums.
Their unruly habit seems to suit me.
These are in a window box with some herbs.
They are all going past their best now
and I can see some seeds.
I will collect them for next year.
More unrulyness!


Pontentilla,
my favourite colour.


Not sure what this is.
It's a shrub.
A lovely pink don't you think.
I hope you are in the pink today!

How very colorful. Some areas of my flowers are rather unruly, but I notice the butterflies don't seem to mind!!! Thank you for the tour of your pretty flowers and have a lovely weekend.

Oh how lovely! Cornflowers and Nasturtiums are amongst my favourite flowers... Do you use the Nasturtiums (flowers or leaves) in salads? They have a lovely peppery flavour.
