I know I often rave about how much I love spring, especially when the first few buds on the trees begin to bloom and the roadside verges explode with colour and vitality but during the height of summer, as it is now, the sight of colourful borders and front gardens lit up with yellows, pinks, reds and oranges is always the prettiest sight and our new garden hasn't disappointed either!
These pretty purple flowers have been climbing along the fence for a while now and I love that varying purple/pink shade on each of the petals. I'm still trying to identify this one!
I love the smell of lavender and the bees do too! This is one of their favourite plants.
As is this bright, sunshine yellow flower. I believe this is Spoon Leaved Stonecrop and each day there are bees all over this! Whenever it's sunny outside this flower lights up the entire border.
I love that butter yellow shade. Reminds me of Ron's spell for Scabbers!
Sunshine, Daisies, Butter Mellow.
Turn this stupid, fat rat yellow!
It's also really interesting as directly next to the spoon-leaved variety, is another stonecrop! This one, I think, is Sedum 'Marchants Best Red' and I love the shape and colour of the leaves on this one. It reminds me of a coral formation and the pink bursts are so pretty.
This is another flower I'm yet to identify, but this beautiful, candyfloss pink shade is so pretty and this is another bee favourite according to my observations so far! I love the little wispy bits which flick off of each petal too, these ones remind me of some of the neon colour plants in Avatar!
I am definitely switching across to the botanists' group at the moment! As well as my general wildlife obsession, I am becoming increasingly interested in plants and flowers! Sad I know, but I love it, and they're so pretty too.
Hope you're all having a lovely Monday!
