The sky was overcast this morning, and since I had read on someone's blog that garden photos should be taken on a cloudy day rather than a sunny one, I thought I'd take a little stroll around the garden and see what I could find.
Daffodils. I really like the pale ones on the right but I don't remember their name.
Mauve lamium, a great little groundcover.
Apricot 'Winter Joy' wallflower.
The ever-present Osteospermum (African Daisy). They self-sow by the hundreds but they are good value.
These stocks have been flowering continuously for more than a year.
Shay's tulips, planted in celebration of her birth. You can see why we need to re-sow the lawn.
The much-maligned Centranthus.
Bronze Fennel for contrast, and for aniseed flavour, if you like it.
I know they are as common as can be but I've forgotten their name.
