The vibrant colours of the tulips have gone, to be replaced with delicate shades of lilac and purple. Above, Clematis Ice Blue starts to unravel its petals, showing just the faintest hint of lilac/blue.
The alliums are in flower and looking wonderful (they always seem to flower for Chelsea Flower Show week!)
They are amazing in close up too...
These alliums (Christophii, I think but am not sure) are just starting to explode into life.
Reliable and beautiful geranium Rozanne (complete with a coups of aphids - yuck- which are plaguing my roses and pretty much everything else at the moment.
Here's a more tropical flower. It's more on the pink side than purple, but I am delighted because it is flowering for the second time! I am not that good with house plants, so when my Mum gave me this orchid, I was rather concerned. I put it in the bathroom because I thought it would like the humidity and I think it does. It probably needs a bit of food now though.
Nothing to do with actual flowers, but I was intrigued by the pattern the sun made shining through the net curtain this morning. It has been lovely to enjoy the sun, but all my pots now need watering!
