Did’nt sleep very well last night so I was up early, 5.30, not usual for me. There was a beautiful mist lying in the valley with the early morning tinge of pink from the rising sun. Beautiful. I can see why people say it’s the best part of the day.
More pink, even though it looks red in the pic, from these Poppies which self-seed like mad. I just pull out what I don’t want. The flowers don’t last long if it’s raining, luckily the last few days have been fine. No sun though. Its a strange Summer so far, very little sunshine.
Sweet William’s are doing well in this tractor tyre together with Strawberries. There is an Apple tree in the centre.
Love Sweet Peas especially this colour.
Inula, each flower like a mini sunshine. In front is a pot of Cornflowers. Blue and yellow together like the Roscommon flag.
Double flowered Feverfew, so pretty.
In a pot by the back door is this annual Mallow. Love the vibrant colour.
