I can't believe how quickly times passes by as yet another month has nearly been and gone. I think that May has been quite cold this year but the cooler temperature hasn't stopped the plant world from continuing to put on a beautiful show. These blue geraniums have grown from under the fence next door and they're very welcome here.
I think that this shrub is called weigela and although it's not very interesting to look at for most of the year, when it blooms it's absolutely stunning.
Although I can't remember what this plant's name is, it reminds me of a thistle without the prickly bits.
Our purple geranium is lovely and has self-seeded in different places around the garden, providing really good ground cover. I love the darker shade of the pattern which looks like it's been drawn on to the petals. Without it, the flowers would be quite dull to look at.
Some more aquilegias have popped up in our garden this year including this lovely raspberry colour...
...and a solid blue...
...as well as a lovely delicate shade of pale pink. I wonder what colours and shapes will pop up next year?
Farewell spring 2015!
